Santa must have received our wishlist this year, as over Christmas Bime featured in ReadWriteWeb's list of the top 10 enterprise cloud apps and services of 2011. We were in fine company with companies such as Heroku and Xeround also included on the list. The author, Scott Fulton, describes a dramatic shift from 2010 to 2011 for businesses thanks to the cloud: "In a very short time, suddenly true scalability for every IT service appeared within their reach."
The choices for the list were evaluated partly based on the "social data flow", a positive reflection of the buzz around Bime and the positive press we received in 2011. Scott writes extensively about Bime's Deja Vu data cache, which allows users to host their data in the cloud allowing them to use it online, anytime.
