The CODiE Awards are annual awards given within the software industry. They are given by the Software and Information Industry Association for excellence in software development. There are awards in more than 75 categories.[1]

The CODiE Awards program attempts to showcase the best software products and services and also honors excellence in corporate philanthropy. It is one of the most recognized peer-recognition awards in the software industry.

The name "CODiE" is derived from code, which relates to the instructions making up a computer program.

History[edit]

In 1986, the Excellence in Software Awards program was established by the Software Publishers Association (SPA). In 1999, the SPA merged with the Software and Information Industry Association (SIIA), so that the pioneers of the then-nascent software industry could recognize the best annual software products. In 1993, the Excellence in Software Award was renamed the CODiE Award.

Past winners include companies such as Adobe, Google, Jigsaw, Learnosity, Netsuite, Red Hat, Rosetta Stone, Salesforce.com, Digimind, Scribe Software, Triumph Learning, Vocus, WSJ.com, Moove-iT and more.[2]
