NEW YORK, March 6 /PRNewswire/ — OpTier(TM), the leader in Business Transaction Management(TM) (BTM) for the enterprise, today announced that for the third year in a row, CoreFirst, its flagship product, was selected as a Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) CODiE Awards Finalist in the Best Software Testing Solution category.
OpTier's CoreFirst products monitor and help manage tens of millions of transactions daily at enterprises around the world. Leading global banks, insurance companies, manufacturers, government agencies and retailers rely on CoreFirst for the smooth performance of their IT operations, which service the needs of hundreds of millions of consumers and employees.
CoreFirst automatically maps business services to the IT infrastructure in production and test environments to help organizations better align IT with the needs of the business. As organizations increasingly turn to technology strategies such as virtualization to more economically manage and consolidate their IT resources, visibility into the datacenter becomes obscured. OpTier's CoreFirst BTM technology delivers end-to-end visibility and control of all transactions as they traverse through applications in order to create and maintain a complete profile of transaction activity in terms of time and resources. With CoreFirst, organizations can actively identify and isolate performance problems as they develop, and before users are affected. This improves collaboration among different stakeholders by providing a common transactional context to help better align IT with business needs.
This year's CODiE Awards finalists were chosen from more than 1,000 nominations submitted by more than 600 companies. Judging was conducted by software experts from the trade press, consultants, educators, IT specialists and other neutral specialists.
"Competition is tough this year and that makes selection as a CODiE Finalist a real achievement," said Ken Wash, SIIA president. "All the companies on this year's list should feel justifiably proud of their recognition."
"As IT systems become more complex, the need to test applications in pre- production is critical to preventing transaction failure," said Israel Mazin, CEO of OpTier. "This recognition from SIIA for the third consecutive year in the testing category supports the benefits that many of our Fortune 1000 customers have experienced using CoreFirst in their testing environments, as well as in production."
