"Our Editors' Best Awards let us leverage our contributing editors' expertise to provide well-earned recognition to products that exceed industry standards," said Jason Bovberg, senior editor, Windows IT Pro. "As we did last year, we've also added valuable, in-the-trenches insight from our reader community about the winning products. We're proud to now share this invaluable information with our Windows IT Pro and SQL Server Magazine communities. Our winners should be extremely proud of this recognition from our editorial experts."
"For our 2011 Community Choice awards, we continued to see a surge in community participation," said Jason Bovberg, senior editor at Windows IT Pro. "Our Windows IT Pro, SQL Server Magazine and DevProConnections awards programs are unique in that the product-nomination process is open to readers. We don't just present a predefined list of products and services, thereby limiting scope. Instead, the community both nominates and votes for the best products of the year, ensuring a nice breadth of inclusion in the surveys. The winners of these awards are truly the community favorites. Our winners have earned a unique honor to stand out among their peers as winners of our Community Choice Awards."
"We are honored to have three of our products recognized by six awards, and it was especially nice to see a new product win two awards" said Nick Harshbarger, SQL Sentry VP of Sales and Marketing. "Both the editors of SQL Server Magazine and the SQL Server community recognize the value of our products in the marketplace."
