The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) recognized two Puget Sound companies last night in San Francisco at its annual Codie Awards event, which honors "leaders and innovators" across technology. The awards received 1,026 nominations -- the most in the awards' 20-year history.
The list of winners includes Amazon.com in the best Web services solution category. Onvia won two awards for best online directory and business leads service and best online government information service.
Microsoft was not among the winners, but some of its competitors were. The big winner may have been Salesforce.com, which took home three awards including the corporate achievement award.
