Devfarm Software today announced that PowerWF – Visual PowerShell Orchestration was named as a Silver medal winner of the “2011 Editors’ Best Awards” in the Script Editor category by Penton Media’s Windows IT Pro magazine.
The 2011 Editors’ Best Awards are based on a product’s strategic importance to market, its competitive advantages, and its value to customers.
“Our Editors’ Best Awards let us leverage our contributing editors’ expertise to provide well-earned recognition to products that exceed industry standards,” said Jason Bovberg, senior editor, Windows IT Pro. “As we did last year, we’ve also added valuable, in-the-trenches insight from our reader community about the winning products.

Our winners should be extremely proud of this recognition from our editorial experts.”
“We are very excited to have PowerWF receive this award,” said Brian Butler, CEO of Devfarm Software. “We have big plans for the future of the PowerWF product family, and with Microsoft’s continued investment in PowerShell and workflow, PowerWF grows stronger every day.”
PowerWF is a unique authoring tool that turns PowerShell commands into tool box items that can easily be used to create powerful workflows. PowerWF can convert existing PowerShell scripts into workflows which can then be extended using both PowerShell and non-PowerShell activities. Workflows can be tested directly from PowerWF using a full suite of debugging tools .
For 3 years PowerWF has seamlessly combined Windows PowerShell with Workflow technologies to provide users with PowerShell Orchestration. PowerWF provides a rich automation platform that lets IT Administrators harness the strengths and versatility of Windows PowerShell with a workflow Orchestration layer required to cross technical disciplines.
PowerWF includes PowerSE, a best-in-class PowerShell script editor that has all the features expected in high-end script editors like color syntax highlighting, tab completion, and deep Intellisense of PowerShell, WMI and .NET, but what truly makes PowerSE special is how it helps you learn and use PowerShell faster. Smart command help that is there when you need it, detailed command history showing execution time and success or failure, a detailed variable inspection window, and a seamless blending of these features with a syntax editor and a PowerShell command console allows you to make the most of your time with PowerShell.
