WebSphere Insights releases new article on Broadcast Music, Inc. and Prolifics

WebSphere Insights announced today the release of a new article on Broadcast Music, Inc. and how the company is using IBM Business Process Manager and service-oriented architecture to ensure music royalties are paid more quickly and easily.

Online PR News – 22-April-2013 – Dedham, Mass., April 11, 2013 – “Broadcast Music, Inc. rules the charts with BPM and SOA” delves into how the performing rights organization worked with IBM Premier Business Partner Prolifics to speed up processing time and create a new, simpler user interface.

“Prolifics worked with BMI to analyze the current processes and find ways to improve using IBM technology,” says Cara Hogan, Features Editor for WebSphere Insights. “The company is working to streamline processes using business rules solutions like IBM BMP an IBM Operational Decision Manager.”

Broadcast Music, Inc. has continued to thrive despite many years of industry-rocking technology shifts— from vinyl to CDs to MP3s. To meet the challenges of the modern music industry, BMI launched the Orion Project, a massive strategic IT project using all IBM technology and software, according to James King, Senior Vice President of Business Operations at BMI.

“What does this business need to stay relevant in the music industry?” King asks. “It is about how we maintain our relevance, how we rebuild our platform to be more flexible, reusable and then how we use these new technologies to be successful.”
