2022

Summary

IMPF surveyed its membership to determine the various data needs of its individual publishers and reached out to relevant data collection tool providers.

Activity

IMPF distributed a Digital and Data Needs survey to members from around the world in July 2022.  The results showed a broad spread of data needs. While the results were clear with respect to playlisting and pitching software, requirements were more varied when it came to network-facing data collection services. The IMPF EU Project team began to determine adequate services that would meet these needs.  Please find the survey link: Digital and Data Needs Survey  N.B. Survey is now closed.

Beneficiaries

The IMPF membership.

Outcomes/Next Steps

In the first half of 2023, the EU Project Team will work on selecting and starting negotiations to acquire the right tools to streamline data to IMPF’s membership.
