MuleSoft, provider of the leading platform for building application networks today announced that Spotify, the world’s most popular and powerful music streaming service, has implemented MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform to improve business agility and operational efficiency through better connectivity across its back-office systems.
Spotify continues to raise the bar for digital music services. The company has experienced rapid business growth, with a presence in 60 countries and recently announcing 100 million monthly users. To support this growth, Spotify recognised that improving internal connectivity would streamline business processes and ultimately create a more agile and responsive organisation.
Since its inception, Spotify has been at the forefront of the DevOps movement, staking its competitiveness on its ability to innovate faster than others in the market. As the company scaled and introduced its service into new markets, Spotify adopted MuleSoft as its standard integration platform to complement its move to microservices and support its overall strategy to promote business agility and accelerate innovation.
Through MuleSoft, Spotify is deploying microservices to streamline the integration of existing systems such as data warehouses with company ERP infrastructure layers. In doing so, business functions such as forecasting and reporting are enhanced thanks to improved information sharing across the organisation.
“Maintaining market leadership is about speed and innovation—anticipating market trends, rolling out new services and reaching new geographies as quickly as possible,” said Peter Stolt, service owner, Spotify.
“MuleSoft’s approach to application development helps us maintain our ‘start-up’ agility as we scale over the longer-term. With MuleSoft, we can maximise our business support systems through an application network that can rapidly evolve in line with new initiatives and business development.”
Phase one of the MuleSoft rollout, which commenced in early summer 2016, will focus on connecting the internal back-office functions. Once complete, Spotify envisions that this connectivity will be extended to third party organisations, such as mobile network operators, advertisers and artists –– bringing a new level of efficiency to the wider industry.
