I recently came across SkyTap, (www.SkyTap.com) an organization that provides cloud-based environments for development, testing, training – and yes, demos and POC’s. I’ve had the chance to have a couple of conversations with the folks at SkyTap and to see a demo of the environment in action – it looks like an excellent solution to many of the demo environment challenges that we face.
Very simply, it provides a consistent, stable copy of your demo environment (some might call it their “Gold” environment), accessible 24/7/365 from a web browser. My understanding is that it is particularly useful for non-SaaS offerings (the more complex the environment, the more valuable it should be). More information can be found here: https://www.skytap.com/solutions/enterprise-sales-demos/.
Any comments or experiences to share using SkyTap? It seems like a really good thing!
