SIIA Announces CODiE™ Award Winners for Software Industry
Twenty Eight Winners Recognized for Industry Excellence
WASHINGTON, D.C. (May 7, 2015) – The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the principal trade association for the software and digital content industries, today announced the 28 winners of the 2015 CODiE Awards in software categories.
The CODiE Awards, originally called the Excellence in Software Awards, were established in 1986 by the Software Publishers Association (SPA), now SIIA, so pioneers of the then-nascent software industry could evaluate and honor each other’s work. Since being established in 1986, the CODiE Awards program has recognized more than 1,000 companies for achieving greatness in the software and information industries.
All of the business software nominated products and services were first reviewed by third-party judges, whose evaluations determined finalists. SIIA members then reviewed these finalists and voted to select CODiE Award Winners. SIIA members then reviewed the finalists and their votes were combined with the scores from the third-party judges to select the 2015 CODiE Award Winners.
“SIIA’s 2015 Software CODiE Award winners are some of the most innovative, high-impact software products in the market,” said Rhianna Collier, VP & Managing Director for the Software & Services Division at SIIA. “We congratulate all of this year’s CODiE Award winners, and thank them for the contributions they have made to the software industry.”
