"We are pleased to have such a diverse range of companies and products as finalists this year," said Rhianna Collier, vice president of the SIIA Software Division. "The competition is always tough and it reflects the level of innovation across a wide range of companies in this industry. The growth in participation certainly mirrors what we are seeing as priorities in the business software market -- especially the need for effective integration of applications and demand for powerful security solutions."

The CODiE™ Awards, originally called the Excellence in Software Awards, were established in 1986 by the Software Publishers Association (SPA), now SIIA, 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.

One hundred thirty‐one nominations from 98 companies were selected as finalists from among 395 total nominations. Nominated products underwent an extensive review by judges via live demonstration, trial product access, and analysis of product documentation. Finalists will now be reviewed by SIIA members, who will vote on winners for 26 categories. The winners will be announced on Wednesday, May 25, 2011 at the CODiE Awards Luncheon, to be held as part of the SIIA All About the Cloud conference.
