Ideras PowerShell Plus Named 2011 Community Choice and Editors Best Award Winner By Windows IT Pro

Idera’s Advanced Integrated Development Environment Wins Gold, Silver in Best Scripting Tool Category
HOUSTON - NOVEMBER 22, 2011 - Idera, a leading provider of Windows PowerShell scripting tools, today announced that its PowerShell Plus™ product won a gold medal for Best Scripting Tool in the 2011 Editors’ Best Awards and a silver medal for Best Scripting Tool in the 2011 Community Choice Awards from Penton Media’s Windows IT Pro Magazine.

“It is an honor to be selected by both the editors and the readers at Windows IT Pro Magazine as one the top scripting tools available for Windows administrators,” said Rick Pleczko, President and CEO of Idera. “PowerShell Plus is the IDE of choice for many administrators because of its ease of use, massive library of scripts and automation capabilities.”

PowerShell Plus is the most advanced Interactive Development Environment (IDE) for Windows PowerShell. It is designed to help administrators and developers quickly master the PowerShell scripting language while dramatically increasing the productivity of both novice and expert users.

"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.”

The 2011 Editors’ Best Awards are based on a product’s strategic importance to market, its competitive advantages, and its value to customers.  

“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.”
