We’ve been featured on the Amazon Web Services Partner Network (APN) blog for a recent project with Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Gigable to connect music fans with new artists and find them in concert.

“With fans around the globe using digital technologies to consume music at an unprecedented rate, thousands of emerging artists are now reliant upon music streaming as their main source of exposure. New pathways are opening for musicians to reach their fans every day, but the royalties from streaming services alone are not typically sufficient to support their career.

Despite the advances in music-sharing technology, touring and live shows remain staples for emerging artists. So how do artists and promoters align the reach of streaming services and online ticketing with fans’ physical locations to better plan, promote, and manage live shows?

To answer this question, Vertical Trail partnered with Gigable to create a music platform and app that uses curated playlists, geo-based concert discovery, and online ticketing to close the gap between artists and their fans—all while building a formidable big data asset.

Vertical Trail is an AWS Partner Network (APN) Advanced Consulting Partner with the Amazon EMR Service Delivery designation. Amazon EMR provides a managed Hadoop framework that makes it easy, fast, and cost-effective to process vast amounts of data across dynamically scalable Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud(Amazon EC2) instances.”
