About the SIIA CODiE™ Awards

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