Company’s Business Transaction Management Software Recognized in Two Categories for Systems Management and Software Testing

NEW YORK, March 9 /PRNewswire/ — OpTier(R), the leader in Business Transaction Management(TM) (BTM) for the enterprise, today announced that its CoreFirst software has been named a finalist in two categories of the Software & Information Industry Association’s (SIIA) CODiE awards. For the first time, the company’s CoreFirst software was selected as a finalist in the “Best Systems Management Solution” category. For the fourth year in a row CoreFirst was also recognized as a finalist in the “Best Software Testing Solution” category.

OpTier’s CoreFirst product enables some of the world’s largest and most successful organizations to harness the power of business transactions. OpTier software solutions dynamically link business services to IT infrastructure, assuring service delivery and optimizing IT resources. CoreFirst is a critical addition to organizations adopting virtualization and service oriented architectures.

This year’s CODiE Awards finalists were chosen from more than 850 nominations submitted by 600 companies. Judging was conducted by software experts from the trade press, consultants, educators, IT and product specialists.

“The competition is particularly steep this year during the 24th Annual SIIA CODiE Awards, making selection as a CODiE Finalist a real achievement,” said Ken Wasch, president of the SIIA. “All the companies on this year’s list of CODiE Finalists should feel justifiably proud of their accomplishment in making it to this stage, and have much excitement to look forward to regarding the upcoming CODiE Awards voting!”

“Recognition from the judges in these two categories is a testament to the deep insight and value that CoreFirst provides to companies in both the testing and production phases of technology deployment,” said Israel Mazin, Chairman and CEO of OpTier. “Often our customers select CoreFirst to deal with a specific need within IT, such as to identify transactions that are performing poorly, but upon installation they find it helps them to uncover issues that they did not even realize were problematic. By uncovering these bottlenecks and assuring that transactions are able to flow smoothly through IT applications and infrastructure, CoreFirst helps organizations to improve the end-user experience while reducing costs.”
