San Ramon, CA (PRWEB) March 30, 2012
OutSystems, provider of the industry leading Agile Platform application development environment, today announced that the Agile Platform is a finalist in the Best Software Development Tool category of the Software & Information Industry Association's (SIIA) 27th Annual CODiE Awards.
The CODiE Awards recognize excellence in the business software, digital content, and education technology industries. Executives with deep industry expertise act as judges through extensively reviewing the nominated products to select the finalists - as such the CODiE Awards hold the distinction of being the industry's only peer-reviewed awards program. 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.
“We are extremely honored to have the Agile Platform recognized by the CODiE Awards,” said Mike Jones, VP Global Marketing, OutSystems.“The achievement reflects OutSystems’ commitment to helping enterprise IT deliver better business applications, faster, by providing a scalable, flexible and easy-to-use solution for almost every development scenario.”
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.
"All of this year's CODiE Awards finalists should feel proud of making it to this stage,” said Rhianna Collier, Vice President of the SIIA Software Division. “We're pleased with all of this year's nominees, and the finalists reflect excellence and innovation in the business software industry.”
The award winners will be announced on Thursday, May 10, at the CODiE Awards Presentations held in conjunction with the SIIA's annual All About the Cloud Conference.
