Rhianna Collier, Vice President of the SIIA Software Division, commended the companies that qualified as finalists: “All of this year’s CODiE Awards finalists should feel proud of making it to this stage. We’re pleased with all of this year’s nominees, and the finalists reflect excellence and innovation in the business software industry.”
SIIA members will now select the winners from among the finalists during the SIIA member voting phase of the program that takes place from March 26-April 13. Software members include the companies developing the applications, services, infrastructure and tools that are driving the software and services industry forward. As such, the CODiE Awards hold the distinction of being the industry’s only peer-reviewed awards program.
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 then, the CODiE Awards has carried out the same purpose – to showcase the software and information industry’s finest products and services and to honor excellence in corporate achievement.
