Oakland, Calif. (PRWEB) January 26, 2006
Digipede Technologies (http://www.digipede.net), the leading provider of distributed computing solutions for the Microsoft Windows platform, has been selected by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) as a 2006 Codie award finalist in the Best Distributed Computing Solution category for its Digipede Network™, an affordable distributed computing solution built entirely on Microsoft .NET that dramatically improves the speed and performance of demanding real-world business applications.
“We founded the Codie Awards 21 years ago so that the pioneers of the then-nascent software industry could evaluate and honor each other’s work,” said Ken Wasch, SIIA president. “The Codies have grown along with the markets they represent, and today competition is fiercer than ever, so being selected as a Codie finalist is not only an honor, but is a significant achievement and great recognition for Digipede and its Windows distributed computing solution.”
The Codie Awards, also known as the “Oscars of the Software Industry,” is the most prestigious and credible peer-reviewed awards program. The judges are made up of a cross-section of software industry experts including industry analysts, technology journalists and product reviewers, consultants and other industry experts. Judges looked at more than 1,026 product nominations submitted by more than 500 companies before identifying the top finalists. This year's 348 finalists will be recognized across 71 categories.
"We are delighted that the Digipede Network has been recognized by our peers and industry experts as a top-tier distributed computing software solution. Being named a finalist is a testament to the value that our grid computing solution offers customers,” said John Powers, CEO of Digipede. “Our enterprise customers rely on the Digipede Network to deliver improved application performance on the Microsoft platform, in a package that’s far easier to deploy and use than competing solutions."
Winners of the 21st Annual Codie Awards will be announced at the SIIA Codie Awards Gala on May 16 in San Francisco at the Westin St. Francis Hotel. For a complete list of the 2006 Codie Award finalists visit: http://www.siia.net/codies/2006/finalists.asp.
