What’s particularly interesting — and one of the reasons that the news is such an honor — The CODiE Awards remain the only peer-recognized program in the content, education, and software industries so each CODiE Award win serves as incredible market validation for a product’s innovation, vision, and overall industry impact.
“Being recognized by the CODiEs is like an Academy Award nomination because it’s voted on by our software company peers”, said Jon Ferrara, CEO Nimble.
Each year, software industry experts from SIIA’s membership evaluate hundreds of business software applications considered for CODiE award recognition. Since 1986, the SIIA CODiE Awards have recognized more than 1,000 software and information companies for achieving excellence.

The SIIA CODiE Awards were established in 1986 so that pioneers of the then-nascent software industry could evaluate and honor each other’s work. During the years that followed, the program evolved into three tracks (content, education, and software) and then further evolved into two (business technology and education technology) — but our core mission has always remained the same: recognizing excellence by honoring the software and information industry’s leading products and services. Award winners are able to leverage their CODiE Award as a prestigious representation of outstanding achievement and vision in the software and information industries.
The origin of the CODiE Award’s name alludes to the program’s basis in the software industry, in which the word “CODiE” is derived from the word “code”. The CODiE Awards logo, re-designed in 2004, combines the word “CODE” with the symbol for information (“i”) to visually represent the CODiE Awards’ focus on the software and digital content industries.
