Andrew,
 
Please see the attached. If there is a resource issue, then please fix the highlighted tracks first. If there is no resource issue, then please address all of the attached tracks. The grey/white color distinction is just for readability.
 
Thanks,
Ben

Here's the list of projects that have issues with the artist names and daily scores on certain tracks. I'm checking the Geographic distribution now, but this is gonna take a little while.

 

Cheers,

Neil

Easy Ben,

 

I'm going to spend all night hammering this and send any errors I find back over to you guys. Once I've done that do you think it would be possible to give Ruth an ETA?

 

All that aside, I'm inclined to give Ruth the ETA but explain that, as the system is free and new, there is always the chance of the odd bug here and there. Safe?

 

Cheers,

Neil

Hi Neil,

 

I've already sent the login details to the guys to have a look at the system - there's enough information for them to get the gist of it all. However it would be useful to know your timetable for getting the system up to scratch.

 

many thanks

Ruth

Hi Ruth,

 

Unfortunately for us there are still a few errors on some tracks which we are continuously ironing out. Even more unfortunately, these appear to be with artists and tracks that are most likely to be of initial interest to EMI marketing.

 

We had hoped that there would be more than enough data in the system (the majority of projects are now showing complete data) for your internal people to start playing with this, but I agree with your points about the more popular artists. Perhaps, it would be best to wait until we have absolute complete data for the artists you have used in your tests below before you send out the details for internal use/experimenting?

 

Due to a strong interest in previous supply/demand figures, we initially focused on getting the data into the Daily Scores module. This is why you are seeing the discrepancies with data for KT. Although both modules utilize similar data, the Geographic module requires further processing.

 

As you know we have had to rapidly move data across to the system which is why there are still a few bugs with specific tracks. We are continuously looking for and fixing these bugs, but as there are such a large number of tracks and 3 different modules this is taking a little longer than we initially anticipated.

  

Please continue to send us this useful feedback and we will continue doing all we can to get the bugs fixed.

 

Many thanks and best regards,

Neil

Hi Ben,

 

I'm just preparing a note to go out to a couple of guys internally and thought I'd play about with the system myself on the basis that if I can do it, anyone can!

 

I found a couple of inconsistencies below and I know you're fixing the issues Steff's brought to your attention but I just did some random searching without anything specific in mind and found the KT inconsistency below: i.e. no mention of no data for KT on the Daily Score but mention of it on the Geographic chart.

 

Thanks

Ruth
