In November of last year, a global partnership was announced between Music Biz and AFEM (Association for Electronic Music). The joint Electronic Music workgroup is set to serve as a vehicle to help educate DJs, producers, artists, songwriters, and more to make sure they are getting paid for their creative works, as well as discuss the transformative challenges necessary to make these processes better on a global scale. The electronic music community has an excellent track record for being forward-thinking regarding data and operations. When coupled with the depth of metadata and supply chain experts at Music Biz, we see this as an opportunity to move the needle on Global Data Transformation. Details and next steps for the workgroup will be discussed during this session.
