In order to survive, everything must evolve. The EContent 100 list of companies that matter most in the digital content industry is no exception. Every year during the voting process, we see how the changing list reflects the way the larger industry is developing. In 2017, a couple of trends emerged. The first, is the importance of artificial intelligence (AI), which is probably obvious to anyone in the content business. The second is the increasing importance of digital asset management (DAM). Next year, DAM will need its own category, but this year, we did our best to honor its contributions to the industry within our existing framework.
Our judges are an integral part of making the EContent 100 list happen, but they rarely get an opportunity to talk directly to our readers. In order to get an idea of what was on their minds during this year's judging, we asked them one simple question: "What was the breakout trend of the past year from your vantage point in the industry, and how do you see it evolving next year?" These are their answers.
