This marks the fifth consecutive year that iAPPS Content Manager has been selected as a finalist for Best Content Management Solution, having been selected as the CODiE Award winner in 2010.

The first round review of all nominees is conducted by media, publishing, and information services executives with considerable industry expertise, including members of the industry, analysts, media and bloggers, and bankers and investors. The judges are responsible for selecting the CODiE Awards finalists. SIIA members then vote on the finalist products and the scores from both rounds are tabulated to select the winners.

About the SIIA CODiE™ Awards

The SIIA CODiE™ Awards, originally called the Excellence in Software Awards, were established in 1986 by the Software Publishers Association (SPA), now the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), so that pioneers of the then-nascent software industry could evaluate and honor each other's work. Since then, the CODiE Awards program has carried out the same purpose – to showcase the software and information industry's finest products and services and to honor excellence in corporate achievement.
