NEW YORK, April 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- TEMIS, the leading provider of Semantic Content Enrichment for the Enterprise, is proud to announce it has been named a finalist by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the principal trade association for the software and digital content industries, for its 26th annual CODiE(TM) Awards.
In 2010, TEMIS had won the CODiE Award for "Best Business Intelligence or Knowledge Management Solution". This year, TEMIS has been selected for its excellence in the "Best Content Management Solution" category. This award recognizes the best software or platform that enables the creation, management and modification of information on the web. It includes content creation, categorization, workflow, publishing and delivery tools.
The CODiE Awards, originally called the Excellence in Software Awards, were established in 1986, so that pioneers of the then-nascent software industry could evaluate and honor each other's work. Since then, the CODiE Awards program showcases the software and information industry's finest products and services and recognizes excellence in corporate achievement.
Selected products underwent an extensive review by judges via live demonstration, as well as trial product access. Finalists will now be reviewed by SIIA members, who will vote on winners for 26 categories. The winners will be announced on Wednesday, May 25th at the CODiE Awards Luncheon, to be held as part of the SIIA All 'About the Cloud' Conference.
"We are honored by this CODiE nomination that recognizes our team's commitment to providing the best semantic enrichment solution to customers worldwide", said Guillaume Mazieres, Executive Vice President North American Operations and Worldwide Marketing, TEMIS. "I want to thank our customers for their continuous trust and for driving our roadmap."
"We are pleased to have such a diverse range of companies and products as finalists this year", said Rhianna Collier, Vice President of the SIIA Software Division. "The competition is always tough and it reflects the level of innovation across a wide range of companies in this industry. The growth in participation certainly mirrors what we are seeing as priorities in the business software market - especially the need for effective integration of applications and demand for powerful security solutions."
