With the RTI databus, applications exchange information by reading and writing data objects shared within a Global Data Space.

The SIIA CODiE Awards are the premier awards for the software and information industries, and have been recognizing product excellence for over 30 years. The awards offer 93 categories that are organized by industry focus of education technology and business technology. RTI Connext DDS was honored as one of 205 finalists across the 59 business technology categories.

"I am impressed by the level of innovation and creativity of the products that have been selected as this year's CODiE Award finalists," said Ken Wasch, President of SIIA. "We are happy to recognize these products and the power they have to transform the future of how we do business."

Our finalist ranking is further validation of our commitment to help our customers and partners leverage the IIoT."

The SIIA CODiE Awards are the industry's only peer-recognized awards program. Business technology leaders including senior executives, analysts, media, consultants and investors evaluate assigned products during the first-round review which determines the finalists.
