Achieve True DevOps by Bringing Traditional On-Premises Applications to the Cloud
Born-in-the-cloud applications do not have to be the only ones that take advantage of the cloud and DevOps. Skytap works like an on-premises data center so that older applications begin and complete their infrastructure, process, and architecture modernization journeys faster.
Developers and testers cite environments as one of the biggest bottlenecks in the software development life cycle. With Skytap’s Environments-as-a-Service, customers:

Legacy architecture and code were not built to work with today’s modern development processes. IT wants to modernize these, but a lack of environments makes innovation and modernization efforts difficult. By using Skytap’s self-service, production-like environments, organizations:
Skytap’s robust set of features make instantly available, self-service development and test environments a reality without the need for additional scripting languages or tools. Users can now devote time and resources towards application modernization efforts instead of re-architecting for the cloud.
