No One Knows DDEX Better Than We Do

The Digital Data Exchange (DDEX) standards have had a profoundly positive impact on the digital music industry. NueMeta has been an active member of the DDEX standards organization since its inception in 2005. Over the years, members of the NueMeta staff have played a variety of roles in the organization, from Board Member, Working Group Chairman and Technical Management Group Member.

Over the years, NueMeta has not only been critical to the development of the standard but it has helped its clients add support for DDEX into their IT systems and brought a variety of DDEX solutions to the marketplace to try to meet the needs of companies of all sizes and technical sophistication.

In the 2013, Forrester published a report entitled “The Total Economic Impact Of The DDEX Standards”. Prior to the creation of the DDEX standards, there were dozens of proprietary data exchange standards in use in the industry making it time consuming and costly to do business. Companies with an upper hand in the business relationship could push this burden onto their business partners. The overall costs associated with the creation and maintenance of all of these proprietary standards was significant (see report below).

The DDEX standard changes all of that. Let us help you assess your needs, figure out what you need in the near-term as well as a plan for the long-term. For those new to DDEX, it can be both confusing and overwhelming. We are here to help. Please contact us today!
