Why Skytap

Intentionally Simple, Extremely Capable

Once in Skytap Cloud, you’re in control – clone environments, build templates, and share all, or parts, of your application across teams in minutes, anywhere in the world.

Vintage Is the New Modern

Competition is moving faster than ever, you can’t afford to stand still. Infuse life back into your traditional applications by accelerating their modernization in Skytap Cloud.

Traditional to Hybrid, Skytap is Ready When You Are

Modernization doesn’t require every new cloud capability on day one.

Leverage a multicloud approach, as needed, to meet your business requirements.
