Marina Del Rey, CA (December 9, 2002) —
CrownPeak Technology, the software service innovator in content management, announced today it has been named to the prestigious “EContent 100” – a roster of the most important players in the content industry, as judged by the editors of EContent magazine.
In being selected for the Second Annual EContent 100 List of Companies, CrownPeak joins 99 other enterprises across the spectrum of content development, management and delivery. The 2002 EContent 100 list was formulated by the magazine’s editorial staff, its contributing editors and other editorial personnel at affiliated Information Today, Inc. magazines. The list reflects the activity and performance in the content industry in 2002 and foreshadows growth and success in the year to come.
“This is a singular honor for us, because the value proposition we’ve offered the market since our inception – that a world class content management system (CMS) can be made available as a service to organizations of all sizes and budgets – is now resonating throughout the industry,” said Jim Howard, CEO, CrownPeak Technology. “We’ve pioneered quick, risk-free CMS deployment, rapid ROI and a feature set equal to or better than any enterprise package on the market – complete with end user templates and developer tools that empower business users and technology specialists alike. We’ve helped transform the content management segment because software-as-service makes strategic and economic sense.”
“With the definition of content and content management continuing to take on new breadth and depth, many companies are beginning to realize that content encompasses much more than it used to,” said Michelle Manafy, editor, EContent. “A wealth of new opportunities are now available for organizations seeking to leverage information.
“Because digital content now consists of almost any knowledge, information or asset base. Whether it be for internal or external use, companies must now step up to meet new challenges to adapt strategies and technologies to handle the diversity of tasks at hand,” Manafy said. “These 100 companies are staying ahead of this changing definition as well as seeking new and innovative ways to contribute to the advancement of technology within the content industry. This is what we try to represent with the EContent 100 list.
“We hope to provide our readers with both a starting point for navigating the content maze and an end point for those seeking final validation before choosing a solution,” she said. "While the list is not intended to serve as a substitute for due-diligence, we hope it offers a picture of what’s available and what’s possible in econtent.”
