The EContent 100 list is now in its 14th year, and it has not gotten any easier for the judges to narrow down the list to just 100 companies. This year, we had three new judges and lots of new companies to consider. We also included a new category: Big Data. These days, data is the driving force behind almost everything on the web. From the targeted ads you see while surfing your favorite sites to the articles and videos that those sites serve up to you, data is behind it all. The cross-channel experiences we now take for granted are made possible by the data that is collected and analyzed by some of the companies we have honored on this year’s list. We look forward to seeing what new and innovative experiences these companies can help content providers come up with next year.
