The Top 100 Companies in the Digital Content Industry: The 2016-2017 EContent 100

Learn More in the Directory!

Article ImageThe EContent 100 list of companies that matter most in the digital content industry is now in its 16th year. Similar to most adolescents, it’s going through some changes. We added new judges and new categories. As a result, we’ve got many new companies on the list. Among other changes, this year we added Online Video as a standalone category. We all know that video’s popularity is on the rise; and as it’s becoming a bigger part of the content puzzle, it clearly needed its own category.

As always, the EContent 100 represents the most important companies in the digital content industry, but it also reflects the trends in the industry that will be integral to success in the coming year. Within these pages, we hope you’ll find the solutions you need to keep ahead of the competition.

My aim is always to help our readers understand how to evaluate tools within the context of their particular needs and goals. One of the ways we do that is through EContent's annual Trendsetting Products list.

I hope that you find these tools as interesting and as potentially helpful as I do!
Here are the 10 professionals who decided ?which companies would make up the EContent 100, along with category descriptions.
Each year, we receive many more submissions for the EContent 100 list than we can use, and many interesting companies don't make it onto the final list.
