PRS For Music expand their capabilities with Azure

PRS for Music records whose music is being listened to on Youtube, Spotify, Apple Music and many other platforms, including the country and location of the listener.

Microsoft’s solutions have revolutionised the speed and scale at which PRS for Music can operate. Robert Ashcroft the Chief Executive of PRS for Music gives a brief statement of the power of the Azure Cloud “It used to take us 20 days to load and match a Spotify file, now we’re down to 11 minutes. That’s the power of the Cloud.”

Check out how Clive Meaker, Producer and Songwriter from Dr Meaker explains how PRS for Music collect his Royalties.

A benefit of using the Azure Cloud is having the ability to scale up very quickly when you need it and then when you don’t need it you can scale down. This allows PRS for Music to manage the cost profile based on the demands of their members.
