Regardless of whether you're a musician, music professional or fan, AAMPP redefines your music discovery and engagement experience with others, by bringing independent artists and fans closer together than ever before. Today, music discovery becomes truly personal, which remains a central piece of the AAMPP experience,

AAMPP's latest upgrades will introduce many powerful features to be rolled out during the coming weeks and months.

AAMPP Instant (beta)
Member Artists can now opt into the beta-selling program that allows them to set their original music for sale on AAMPP, receiving a higher payout per track or album than other industry competitors. Members wishing to participate in the AAMPP Instant beta will find more information via the tour page next to the "AAMPP Instant's" description. A "Get more info" button redirects to a registration request page where exiting members are validated, verifying that they have original content ready for sale. Following beta, AAMPP Instant will be opened up to all musicians. Musicians will be able to track and keep records of their transaction history in real time and request payouts directly from their AAMPP account. Fans can now purchase music directly from their favorite artists, to stream or download at any time. And future updates will allow purchased content to be stored in a fan's AAMPP Music Library, allowing them to create playlists and share from anywhere. 

"Music Identity"
This phrase replaces the generic term "profile" as a key differentiator for AAMPP, from other services using profile when referring to their user's accounts. So, What's your Music Identity?

"Shout Out"
This phrase replaces the generic term "share" as a key differentiator for AAMPP, from other services using share when pushing content and/or information outside of their internal network.

Playlists/Music Queue
Fans can create playlists and also Shout out™ from AAMPP, the music they listen to using our new music queue.

Notification Customization:
Members can set the notifications type they would like to receive via email or through AAMPP's platform. New notifications include: when someone followers, Shout™ on your Pulse™, comments on Shouts, likes Shouts, Reshouts, plays songs or likes songs.

AAMPP Badge
Members can select an AAMPP badge in two (2) variations and multiple sizes for use on personal websites or blogs, which will direct fans straight to their Music Identities.

iPhone App
"Members asked that we create an app so they can have more immediate access to, and communication with, their fans while on the go. We listened and created an iPhone app with this first version (1.0), Now AAMPP's catalogue is with you wherever you go. We've made music discovery simple and intuitive, both for our professional members and for fans. There are more features and updates to follow soon after this debut of the app but, we think members will be pleased with Version 1.0," says CEO, and Founder, Garth Soshahi.

Through the app, musicians who create public collections on AAMPP can curate music, while fans can browse tunes and enjoy hearing new artists instantaneously. Download from the App Store to start discovering great indie music – completely ad free. 

Better discovery through brand consolidation
AAMPP has often been mispronounced. We have been working to help remove this misconception with an additional, more phonetic, domain. Our recent acquisition of "Amp.net" help new visitors more easily find AAMPP, while existing members can now use the shorter domain with existing AAMPP handles to direct fans to their Music Identities.

Even as cloud and managed services grow increasingly central to business strategy and performance, challenges remain. The biggest sticking point for companies seeking to capitalize on the cloud is data security. Keeping data safe is an issue in any computing environment, and it has been a focus since the earliest days of the cloud revolution. Understandably so: a lot can go wrong when you allow valuable information to live outside the firewall. Recent revelations about government snooping, along...

The explosion of connected devices / sensors is creating an ever-expanding set of new and valuable data. In parallel the emerging capability of Big Data technologies to store, access, analyze, and react to this data is producing changes in business models under the umbrella of the Internet of Things (IoT). In particular within the Insurance industry, IoT appears positioned to enable deep changes by altering relationships between insurers, distributors, and the insured. In his session at @Things...
PubNub on Monday has announced that it is partnering with IBM to bring its sophisticated real-time data streaming and messaging capabilities to Bluemix, IBM’s cloud development platform. “Today’s app and connected devices require an always-on connection, but building a secure, scalable solution from the ground up is time consuming, resource intensive, and error-prone,” said Todd Greene, CEO of PubNub. “PubNub enables web, mobile and IoT developers building apps on IBM Bluemix to quickly add sc...
The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
Data-intensive companies that strive to gain insights from data using Big Data analytics tools can gain tremendous competitive advantage by deploying data-centric storage. Organizations generate large volumes of data, the vast majority of which is unstructured. As the volume and velocity of this unstructured data increases, the costs, risks and usability challenges associated with managing the unstructured data (regardless of file type, size or device) increases simultaneously, including end-to-...
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, includin...
The excitement around the possibilities enabled by Big Data is being tempered by the daunting task of feeding the analytics engines with high quality data on a continuous basis. As the once distinct fields of data integration and data management increasingly converge, cloud-based data solutions providers have emerged that can buffer your organization from the complexities of this continuous data cleansing and management so that you’re free to focus on the end goal: actionable insight.
Between the compelling mockups and specs produced by your analysts and designers, and the resulting application built by your developers, there is a gulf where projects fail, costs spiral out of control, and applications fall short of requirements. In his session at DevOps Summit, Charles Kendrick, CTO and Chief Architect at Isomorphic Software, will present a new approach where business and development users collaborate – each using tools appropriate to their goals and expertise – to build mo...
Operational Hadoop and the Lambda Architecture for Streaming Data Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to mak...
When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, will show how “product relationship management” can help you leverage your connected devices and the data th...
In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon...
With several hundred implementations of IoT-enabled solutions in the past 12 months alone, this session will focus on experience over the art of the possible. Many can only imagine the most advanced telematics platform ever deployed, supporting millions of customers, producing tens of thousands events or GBs per trip, and hundreds of TBs per month. With the ability to support a billion sensor events per second, over 30PB of warm data for analytics, and hundreds of PBs for an data analytics arc...
One of the biggest impacts of the Internet of Things is and will continue to be on data; specifically data volume, management and usage. Companies are scrambling to adapt to this new and unpredictable data reality with legacy infrastructure that cannot handle the speed and volume of data.
