Aspera GmbH, creator of entitlement-centric software asset management, announces today it has been honored by SIIA with 2 prestigious CODiE™ Awards: “Best Asset Management Solution” and “Best Web Services Solution.”
In the “Best Asset Management Solution” category Aspera won against finalists: Flexera Software, Express Metrics LLC, and Fiberlink Communications. In the “Best Web Services Solution” category Aspera won against finalists: IntelliResponse Systems Inc., 7 Layer Technologies, and Volusion Inc.
Being selected a winner, in not only one but two categories, is an indispensable and important distinction for Aspera, particularly because the CODiEs are the industry’s only peer-reviewed awards series. Through a detailed review of products and services by people who know the industry, the CODiE Awards allow companies to validate their products against the competition to distinguish excellence. Aspera was one of the 425 nominated products and services that were first reviewed by third-party judges, whose evaluations lead to 113 finalists. Then, SIIA members reviewed the finalists and voted to select the winners.
“Efficient, end-to-end processes covering everything from license procurement to software distribution are essential for software asset management. Furthermore, a solution that supports interoperable IT management is something the market has been demanding for years,” said Bernhard Boehler, Co-founder and Managing Partner of Aspera GmbH. “While developing technology to fulfill this two-pronged need, Aspera was inspired to design a new approach to software asset management. The idea was to build the technology around the license and entitlements, anchor it in automated processes, and architect it for interoperation. We called it Entitlement-centric Software Asset Management and it’s a great honor to have our innovation and 10 years of hard work acknowledged by winning two CODiE Awards.”
