The 2017-2018 EContent 100 Companies that Matter Most in the Digital Content Industry

Learn More in the Directory!

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.
