Award History

The SIIA CODiE Awards were established in 1986 so that pioneers of the budding software industry could evaluate and honor each other's work. During the years that followed, the program evolved into three tracks (content, education, and software) and then further evolved into two (business technology and education technology) — but our core mission has always remained the same: recognize excellence by honoring leading technology products and services Award winners leverage their CODiE Award as a prestigious representation of outstanding achievement and vision.

Did You Know...

CODiEThe origin of the CODiE Award's name alludes to the program's basis in the software industry, in which the word "CODiE" is derived from the word "code". The CODiE Awards logo, re-designed in 2004, combines the word "CODE" with the symbol for information ("i") to visually represent the CODiE Awards' focus on the software and digital content industries.
