REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Dec. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- LucidWorks, the company transforming the way people access information, is pleased to announce that it has been named to the 2013 EContent 100 List of Companies that Matter Most in the Digital Content Industry. Selection of the companies for the EContent 100 List falls to a team of judges including editors from Information Today, Inc., EContent magazine contributing editors, and other industry experts.
LucidWorks, recognized in the Search & Analytics category for the LucidWorks Search product, delivers unmatched scalability to billions of documents with sub-second query and faceting response time. The LucidWorks platform uncovers real-time insights from any data source, no matter where it is located – structured data (such as databases), unstructured data (such as documents, emails or social channels) or semi-structured data (such as websites). The company's rich portfolio is the only enterprise-grade embedded search development platform built on the power of the Apache Lucene/Solr open source search project that powers many of the world's largest e-commerce sites.
"In 2013, our task was to narrow down the ever expanding list of important players in the digital content industry to a mere 100 companies that matter most, a task that is becoming harder every year," said Theresa Cramer, editor of EContent. "Consequently, the companies that do make up our list can be sure that they are in good company—and that next year, there will be a new crop of companies biting at their heels. This is great for the industry, and exciting for those of us who cover the space."
The EContent 100 List can be seen at www.econtentmag.com and in the December 2013 issue of EContent.
