SAN FRANCISCO (All About the Cloud) — May 26, 2011 — Netuitive, Inc., the leading provider of predictive analytics for IT, today announced it has been selected as winner of the prestigious CODiE Award in the "Systems Management Solution" category for the third year in a row.

The award recognizes Netuitive's predictive analytics software platform for solving visibility, performance and application management problems associated with large enterprise virtualization and cloud infrastructure.  Powered by its patented Behavior Learning EngineTM, Netuitive replaces human guesswork with automated mathematics and analysis to forecast, identify and resolve IT performance issues before they impact quality of service. 

131 nominations from 98 companies were selected as finalists from among 395 total nominations.

Being chosen as a winner is a unique and important distinction, as the CODiEs are the industry's only peer-reviewed awards program.   Established by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the CODiEs recognize excellence and achievement in the business software, digital content, and education technology industries.
