It takes a test tube of innovation, a beaker of leadership and a graduated cylinder of “buzz” to create the chemistry required to be the software industry’s best. And that’s who the editors of SD Times have recognized for 2014.
Judged by the editors of SD Times each spring, the SD Times 100 recognizes the companies that have shown they have shaped these elements of success in ways that are unique and compelling. Now in its 12th year, the SD Times 100 has grown to become one of the most respected resources for development managers and technology executives.
In these pages, we talk to several of the leaders about their products, their achievements, where they are and where they see themselves going. Their stories are often fascinating, and we urge you to visit their websites and take their solutions for a test-drive.
As you look over the list, we’d like to hear from you. Did we hit the mark? Did we disappoint? So, enjoy this special supplement to SD Times, and mark your calendars: Nominations for the 2015 SD Times 100 will open on March 1!
