Blueprint Wins Jolt Product Excellence Award

Toronto, ON. – Blueprint, a leading provider of requirements definition solutions for the business analyst, has been honored with a Jolt Product Excellence Award in the highly competitive Design Tools and Modeling category. TechWeb announced the winners of the 19th annual Jolt Product Excellence and Productivity Awards during the Award Ceremony at the Software Development West 2009 Conference and Expo.

The prestigious Jolt Awards recognize those products that have jolted the industry with their significance and made the task of creating software faster, easier, and more efficient. Winners are selected from among hundreds of qualified nominations by an esteemed panel of judges consisting of industry insiders, columnists, and technology leaders.

“This year was a remarkably exciting year for the Jolt Awards because there were so many strong contenders in every category,” said Amber Ankerholz, SD West conference manager. “Blueprint’s selection in the Design and Modeling category puts it among an elite group of software development innovators.”

The Jolt judges not only examine the standard criteria of audience suitability, productivity, innovation, quality, ROI, risk and flexibility, but also seek to honor products that are ahead of the curve. Jolt-winning products are universally useful; are simple, yet rich in functionality; redefine their product space; and/or solve a nagging problem that has consistently eluded other products and books.

“The Jolt Awards are the Oscars of the software industry, and we are proud and humbled by this recognition of the excellence of our product,” said David Nyland, CEO of Blueprint. “By solving a problem that we and numerous other software development organizations have faced – enabling the business analyst to properly define and communicate requirements to meet the business need across a distributed environment – we have built a product that enables the business analyst to succeed.”

The Jolt Awards are presented by SD West and sponsored by Jolt Energy drinks. A complete list of the 19th annual Jolt Award winners is available at For more information on Blueprint, visit 3/09
