June 7, 2006
Basel, Switzerland and Irvine, California – Day Software (SWX: DAYN), a leading provider of global content management and content infrastructure software, today announced that eMusic, the world’s largest digital retailer of independent music, has selected Day’s Content Repository Extreme (CRX) to store, manage and exchange creative data and information about the artists and music that is available for download from the site.
eMusic is the world’s number two digital music service, selling more than 4.5M songs a month. Founded in 1998, the company was the first service to sell songs and albums in the popular MP3 format and the first to launch a digital music subscription service. eMusic stands alone as the only digital music service entirely focused on serving the needs of independent music fans and independent labels. eMusic’s unparalleled catalog stocks more than 1,000,000 tracks from established and emerging artists in every genre from the world’s top 4,000 independent labels, and sells them in the universally-compatible MP3 format.
“At eMusic, we want to provide our customers with an ultra-fast, intuitive and immersive experience and that requires that we have the best infrastructure,” said Cedric Deniau, CTO, eMusic. “Day’s CRX product is crucial to providing us with a flexible, dynamic repository where we can store and access merchandising and editorial information about thousands of independent artists and releases.”
Based in New York, eMusic is wholly owned by Dimensional Associates, Inc., the private equity arm of JDS Capital management.
“Just as eMusic transformed how music-lovers discover and buy their favorite songs, Day’s CRX is transforming the way users access content throughout the enterprise,” said Chris Stark, SVP, Americas, Day. “The music industry is very competitive and eMusic has truly forged an innovative and valuable online music retail business being met with considerable success. CRX will help eMusic maintain their competitive edge by having fast, easy access to content from a variety of sources.”
Day CRX provides an open, standards-based infrastructure for integrating business applications with any structured or unstructured content in an enterprise. New features in Day CRX enable the exchange of high-value content between applications and repositories. This functionality will substantially mitigate the cost and complexity of maintaining and integrating content across an enterprise, and protect past and future technology investments in content repositories and applications.
