March 2, 2010

NEW YORK, March 2 /PRNewswire/ — OpTier®, the leader in Business Transaction Management(TM) (BTM) for the enterprise, today announced that key elements of its BTM suite, OpTier BTM(TM), have been recognized by both Network Products Guide and the Software & Information Association’s (SIIA) CODiE Awards. When combined, OpTier’s CoreFirst and Experience Manager deliver the only fully-integrated, end-to-end Business Transaction Management solution available, providing a comprehensive view of business transactions across all tiers.

OpTier’s Experience Manager won Network Products Guide’s Product Innovation Award in the category of End-User Monitoring. In addition, for the third year in a row, Network Products Guide recognized CoreFirst with its Product Innovation Award in the Business Transaction Management category. Network Products Guide’s annual venerated award recognizes and honors vendors, large and small, from all over the world with innovative and ground-breaking products that are bringing essential and incremental changes and are setting the bar higher for others in all areas of information technology.

For the fifth year in a row, OpTier’s CoreFirst software has been named a finalist for the SIIA CODiE awards. This year marks the second time the company’s CoreFirst software was selected as a finalist in the “Best Systems Management Solution” category. This year’s CODiE Awards finalists were chosen from more than 458 nominations submitted by 250 companies. Judging was conducted by subject matter experts, analysts, journalists and others with deep experience in the field. Members of SIIA will vote for the finalists and winners will be announced on May 11.

“Innovation is not just about new products alone,” says Rake Narang, editor-in-chief at Network Products Guide. “To succeed companies need to see innovation not as a one time errand but as something that has to be continuously evolved and improved upon over and over again. This requires putting greater focus on customer needs and making innovation the center of a company’s way of developing better solutions. Innovative products such as OpTier’s Experience Manager and CoreFirst 3.0 are bringing improvements in transaction monitoring and application performance.”

“This is the twenty-fifth year we have recognized excellence in the software, education and information industries through the CODiE Awards program,” noted Ken Wasch, President of SIIA. “In this economic climate, companies are doing even more to innovate. OpTier has demonstrated a commitment to innovation and quality that is reflected in their selection as a finalist for the CODiE Awards. I am pleased and proud to have them listed among the candidates, and I wish them the best in the final round of voting.”

“We pioneered the concept of Business Transaction Management and our CoreFirst product continues to change the industry’s expectation of how applications should be managed,” said Israel Mazin, CEO of OpTier. “Our Experience Manager product has received tremendous interest since it debuted late last year and these additional accolades from SIIA and Network Products Guide are a testament to the strength of our transaction management offerings.”
