Music Intelligence for Sale

Music Intelligence for Sale | MUSIC:ENTER | Scoop.it

Information is changing the music industry; not only in the ways we consume and discover music, but as well in the ways companies are arming themselves for competition.


Streaming services see gold in the figures that fuel recommendation algorithms, and now content companies, driven too by the alluring growth of digital tech, are proudly announcing their latest partnerships with leading software-as-a-service companies and the terabytes of social data multiplying on their servers.


The future of music discovery—and potentially, of artist development—is now in the numbers.

ThinkDigital™'s curator insight, April 9, 2:56 PM

pioneering semantic web technology...  as suggested by this article, amazon's & google's "giant brain" model can be effectively applied to verticals as well.  gratifying evolutionary strides...  but i'd also like to see advances that make better use of and accommodate user inputs.  what i envision is reverse filtration – something like what amazon is already doing with shopping for goods – especially with regard to lyrical subject matter, not just audio/aural elements like beat, melody, genre, rhythm and such.

The Spotify effect: Why every company is now a data company

The Spotify effect: Why every company is now a data company | MUSIC:ENTER | Scoop.it

After landing a $200 million credit line and acquiring music data platform The Echo Nest, Spotify is widely expected to announce its IPO in coming months. Spotify is a unique spin on the same fundamental formula that generated value for Netflix, Amazon, Groupon, Pandora and LinkedIn before it.


So what exactly is this magic formula? It’s simple, really: When a company uses data to personalize its inventory, it creates a better UX. This UX in turn draws in millions of users and investment dollars.

What’s the lesson startups can derive here?


Value today is less about big sales and more about how many users a company continually engages using data.
