Nasuni is honored to win the 2015 SIIA CODiE Award for Best Cloud Infrastructure. The SIIA is the Software and Information Industry Association, the principal trade association for the software and digital content industry. To quote the SIIA “The CODiE Awards remain the only peer-recognized program in the content, education, and software industries so each CODiE Award win serves as incredible market validation for a product’s innovation, vision, and overall industry impact.”
The CODiE awards are awarded using a three-step process. First, products or content are nominated with an award application. The nominees are culled in a first round by judges, and those that make the cut are then evaluated in a presentation and demonstration made to judging teams for each category. The judging teams then pick the finalists in each category, usually three or four. The finalists are posted and then winners are picked by peer review in a vote by the entire SIIA membership. Judges have a specific set of criteria for their review and members can choose the winner from the finalists based on the information posted for each. You can find out more about the award itself here and the SIIA here.
We are particularly honored to receive this award because:
- It’s an industry peer-reviewed award
- The SIIA is a large and well respected organization
- The other nominees in the category are great products from excellent companies
AirWatch Enterprise Mobility Management is the leading Mobile Device Management (MDM) suite in a large market and a product line that is now part of VMware. Airwatch has been leading the way in MDM for more than 10 years. Their customers include the majority of industry leaders across many sectors including Airlines, Retailers, Energy, Medical Devices, Pharmaceuticals, Hopitality, Finance and top global Fortune companies. It is an extremely successful product that has won in a crowded market and is backed by a technology leader. The other finalists, INetU and iQ media, are less well known but are clearly innovative and excellent products from successful companies solving critical needs. INetU boasts dozens of customer stories and iQ media’s customers include household names like Maserati, Nutrisystem and the NFL. All three of these companies were picked as finalists through the same nomination and judging process as Nasuni.
I would like to personally say thank you very much to the CODiE judges and specifically our category judges. The process they took us through was intensive but they made it enjoyable. On behalf of Nasuni, I would also like to thank the SIIA membership for their votes. Nasuni is honored to receive the 2015 CODiE for Best Cloud Infrastructure.
