To identify the innovators, IDC solicited entries from vendors with annual revenue less than $100 million that exemplify key trends that are driving change in the application development and deployment markets today. As part of the process, vendors were asked to submit case studies that showcase how the technology provides real-world benefits to customers.

Skytap made the list based, in part, on its submission of Ellie Mae, a loan origination software and services company.

According to IDC, Innovative Application Development and Deployment Companies Under $100 Million to Watch, Doc #225069, September 2010, “Skytap is well suited for most dynamic workloads including application development, testing, virtual training, ERP migration, and sales demonstration projects.” The report continues, stating, “Ellie Mae adopted Skytap to enable a more efficient and collaborative global development process and reduce IT infrastructure bottlenecks in its development process.”

*IDC’s “Innovative Companies Under $100M to Watch” reports are a qualitative evaluation of a set of vendors within a specific market — they are not a stack ranking nor do they represent an exhaustive evaluation of all companies in a segment or a comparative ranking of the companies in the report. IDC solicited entries from vendors of less than $100 million that exemplify specific key trends (selected by analysts) that are driving change in a specific software market. Vendors then submitted case studies that exemplified one of the trends used as the basis for the award. These case studies were evaluated individually and independently by related market analysts across several pre-determined criteria. The teams then met to review the scores. The case studies submitted for review had to demonstrate that the technology was available, able to be implemented and provided real-world benefits to the customer.
