EAGAN, Minn. – December 4, 2002 – WAM!NET, a global provider of shared services for content management and distribution, announced today that it was named to EContent magazine's prestigious second annual EContent 100 list. EContent is the premier source for strategies and resources for the digital content industry.
WAM!NET was selected among the companies "that matter most in the digital content industry," according to Editor Michelle Manafy. Manafy says the company was chosen for the elite list this year because, "WAM!NET provides an essential piece of the content puzzle – getting the content into the hands of the user."
WAM!NET is featured in the Content Delivery and Payment category of the EContent 100 list in the December 2002 issue of the magazine along with companies such as Apple and RealNetworks.
EContent's editors and writers create the list from the magazine's interactions with hundreds of vendor and user companies at events during the course of the year. Selected companies are then consolidated into categories to provide context for the various elements that comprise the digital content area.
"As a provider of content management solutions for a broad range of industries including media producers, publishers, brand owners and creative firms worldwide, we're proud to receive this recognition," said Michael Williams, CEO, WAM!NET. "And, this represents further market validation of our government services business, a leading developer, designer and manager of secure enterprise networks for digital content distribution and hosting."
