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 one another’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.
