Warner Music + Cisco = Next-Generation Online Music Experience

August 12, 2009 - 4 Comments

In a bicoastal media event earlier today, Cisco Chairman and CEO John Chambers, and Edgar Bronfman, Jr., Chairman and CEO of Warner Music Group (WMG), announced the expansion of a strategic relationship in which WMG will use the Cisco Eos social entertainment platform to power many of its artist web sites and play a key role in WMG’s direct-to-consumer initiatives.WMG deployed Eos for four new sites: Grammy-nominated rock band Paramore; R&B singer Trey Songz; rock band Halestorm; and a redesigned Eos site for reggae singer Sean Paul. WMG also announced that it intends to use the Eos platform to create approximately a dozen additional sites by the end of the year, including a brand new site for singer/songwriter and American Idol alum, Jason Castro, as well as for R&B songstress Estelle, and hip-hop phenomenon Lupe Fiasco. “Cisco is committed to helping the Media & Entertainment industry produce its next big hit − new, personalized and interactive experiences that add value in the relationship between fans and the entertainment content they love,” said Chambers. Cisco Eos is a hosted white-label “software as a service” platform that enables Media & Entertainment companies to create, manage and monetize social entertainment experiences built around their branded content.

  1. Great site!Thank you and good luck!

  2. This is great, so many of the artists websites just look poor and dated now and I see more and more of them using facebook, myspace or twitter rather than their own website as their main information point. Maybe this could be the change they need…

  3. Warner Music + Cisco =perfect music experience 🙂

  4. That is a really slick looking interface. Good job!!
