Analytics. Chatbots. Machine learning. AI is here, and it’s changing everything from how we search for content to how we monitor content performance. Meanwhile, an increasingly global market for content has creators thinking about how to translate and localize their messages. But as much as things change,they also stay the same. You still need a CMS and something to help with digital asset management. You still need marketing tech (martech) and, if you’re selling content directly, you need to figure out how to monetize it. But these days, it’s more likely that some kind of AI might be helping with one or more of your daily tasks. This year’s EContent 100 list includes companies that are changing with the times and some that are leading the charge. It’s an exciting time, but it also raises a lot of questions—questions that we’ll aim to answer in 2019.
