Overwhelmed by the number of options for content technology tools? Unsure what types of tools are available? Do you need to minimize your time spent researching the content technology landscape

Every one-to-two years, Content Science updates our Content Technology Directory with established and emerging tools available to save you hundreds of hours of research. This year, we added 51 tools, bringing the total up to 217 specialized tools that are already helping content curious leaders and the content professionals on their teams as they improve or scale their efficiency, effectiveness, and governance standards. 

We’ve based this directory on our ongoing content operations research, our client work, and research into the content technology landscape. The categories are:

  • Content Analysis + Evaluation
  • Content Standards + Style
  • Content Creation
  • Digital Asset Management
  • Content Management + Deployment
  • Content Modeling + Taxonomy
  • Content Workflow + Delivery

We’ve identified these types of content tools as the most important processes for an effective content operation. With so many options for each process, you are sure to find something to fit your organization’s needs. 

The directory comes in an easy-to-download Excel sheet so you and your team can quickly identify the right tools for your needs. Tools added this year are highlighted for your convenience.
