2012 CODiE Awards
The SIIA CODiE Awards have recognized more than 1,000 companies over the past 27 years. The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) -- formerly called the Software Publishers Association -- started the awards back in 1986 as the Excellence in Software Awards. According to SIIA, the CODiE Awards are the industry's only peer-reviewed awards program.
