We are very excited to announce that the Altova MissionKit won the Jolt Product Excellence Award for Best Development Environment last night! Lauded as the "Oscars of the Software Development Industry," the Jolt Product Excellence and Productivity Awards are presented each year to products that have "jolted" the industry with their significance and made the task of creating software faster, easier, and more efficient. According to their Web site, the Jolt Awards, "…recognize the most innovative, trend-making, ahead-of-the-curve products. Jolt-award winners are the software products, books and technologies that developers should be using today." We are honored – and very proud – to be recognized with this designation for the MissionKit, Altova’s suite software development tools for XML, databases, and UML. The unmatched functionality and tight integration between the tools in the MissionKit have been designed from day one to make developers’ lives easier, and we couldn’t be happier to have this recognized first and foremost by our customers and now by this panel of distinguished Jolt Award judges! The complete list of Jolt award winners has been posted, and more info and photos will follow soon as they’re available. A big thank you to the Jolt judges, and congratulations to all the other Jolt Award winners!
