Blueprint Selected as a Finalist for 2010 CODiE Awards

Blueprint Requirements Center 2010 Honored as Exclusive Requirements Definition and Visualization Solution in "Best Software Development Solution" Category

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - March 2, 2010) -  The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) has announced that Blueprint Requirements Center 2010, a complete solution for requirements definition and collaboration, has been selected as a finalist for the prestigious CODiE Awards in the "Best Software Development Solution" category. All products that qualified as finalists will now be reviewed by members of SIIA, who will vote to select the winner for this category, as well as 55 other categories. The winners will be announced in May.

One hundred eighty-eight products from 136 companies were selected as finalists from more than 785 nominations submitted by 374 companies. Nominated products underwent an intensive review by subject matter experts, analysts, journalists, and others with deep experience in the field. All finalists may now be reviewed on the CODiE Awards Website at www.siia.net/CODiEs.

"This is the twenty-fifth year we have recognized excellence in the software, education and information industries through the CODiE Awards program," noted Ken Wasch, President of SIIA. "In this economic climate, companies are doing even more to innovate. Blueprint Software Systems Inc. has demonstrated a commitment to innovation and quality that is reflected in their selection as a finalist for the CODiE Awards. I am pleased and proud to have them listed among the candidates, and I wish them the best in the final round of voting."

Originally called the "Excellence in Software Awards," the CODiEs were established in 1986 by the Software Publishers Association (SPA), which preceded the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA). The program was created so that pioneers of the then-nascent software industry could evaluate and honor each other's work. Since then, the CODiE Awards program 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 and philanthropic efforts.

"The complexity of IT software projects in the global 2000 has sky-rocketed," said Matthew Morgan, chief marketing officer of Blueprint. "Blueprint's leadership in requirements solutions is driven from our patented technology that simulates all requirements together, eliminating stakeholder misunderstandings and providing a complete and accurate picture of 'what's to be built' by software developers. Blueprint is honored to deliver the only requirements definition and visualization solution selected by the SIIA for this recognition."
