Enterprise cloud company Skytap has hired a former Microsoft vice president, Wayne Morris, as its new chief marketing officer in an effort to further boost its growth in the market for running legacy business applications in the cloud.
The Seattle-based company, originally founded in 2006 as a University of Washington spinoff, employs about 160 people and has raised $65 million in total funding. Skytap cites Airbnb, Fiserv and NBC Universal among hundreds of customers that use its cloud to run applications that would have otherwise remained in on-premises data centers.
