About the SIIA CODiE Awards
The CODiE Awards were established in 1986, by the Software and Information Industry Association (SIIA) so that pioneers of the software industry could evaluate and honor each other's work. Since then, the program has evolved into three tracks—organized by industry focus in content, education, and software—but the core mission has always remained the same: recognizing excellence by honoring the software and information industry's leading products and services. The SIIA Education Division serves and represents more than 200 member companies that provide software, digital content, and other technologies that address educational needs.
