"Each year, SD Times carefully considers each organization's products and services, reputation with development managers, and the new ideas and thought leadership that it has brought to the industry. Macrovision has clearly become a leading player in the software industry by offering cutting-edge Software Value Management solutions to both software publishers and their customers."
