Bedford, MAMarch  29, 2005 Stylus Studio (http://www.stylusstudio.com), the industry-leading provider of XML development tools for advanced data integration, won the nomination for Ziff Davis' eWEEK Magazine's 5th Annual eWEEK Excellence Awards. The Stylus Studio® 6 XML Professional Edition nomination for best enterprise productivity application underscores the surging popularity of the Stylus Studio XML IDE in the IT community and is yet another notable testament to its competency and prowess at simplifying all things XML.

The eWEEK Excellence Awards program is the industry's most comprehensive enterprise IT benchmark for assessing products and services that demonstrate innovation and integrate cutting-edge technologies while maintaining a strong commitment to helping enterprises address their varied competitive, security, and budgetary concerns. Regarding this year's nominees, Peter Coffee, eWEEK Technology Editor, commented, "More than ever before, the Excellence field this year showed that IT vendors are trying to deliver what enterprise professionals need, not just following the least-resistance path of technology progress."
