The Software & Information Industry Association(SIIA), the principal trade association for the software and digital content industries has been presenting the CODiE Awards since 1986. The CODiE are awards to two broad categories, business technology and education technology. There are over 75 categories that receive appreciation by these awards. Some of the notable past winners include Google, Salesforce.com, Red Hat, Mc-Graw Hill Education, Adobe and many more.
The SIIA CODiE Awards have honored thousands of software, education, information, and media products for achieving excellence and innovation in technology. Each nominated product receives a detailed review by two expert judges. The judgment of products is based against category-specific criteria.
To help guide future product development, each nominee receives detailed feedback from the judges. Also, they help in the areas of marketing and promotions.
