SOMERVILLE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SmartBear Software, the leader in software quality tools for the connected world, has been named to the 2016 SD Times 100 for the category APIs, Libraries and Frameworks 2016. Frameworks help to build applications well, but a well-built application means nothing if it can’t connect to and exchange information with other systems. SmartBear has been recognized by the editors of SD Times as helping to create and share applications that customers are looking for. This is SmartBear’s ninth time on the SD Times 100.
“The software development industry has always been competitive, but never more so given the innovation we're seeing in so many spaces, especially in API readiness, testing and collaboration,” said David Rubinstein, Vice President of Editorial and Operations at BZ Media and Editor-in-Chief of SD Times. “That makes it quite difficult to select those companies that are truly ‘blazing their own trail’ as leaders, innovators or influencers — but that’s what we did when choosing the 2016 SD Times 100. The editors carefully considered each nominee’s products and services, thought leadership and reputation. Thanks to companies like SmartBear, the future for software development is very bright.”
Each year, the editors of SD Times honor the companies that have demonstrated innovation, advancing the state of the art of software development. For 2016, categories included ALM and Development Tools; APIs, Libraries and Frameworks; Big Data and Business Intelligence; Database and Database Management; the Cloud; DevOps; Test, Security and Performance; SCM; User Experience; and Influencers.
