Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: “Cloud computing provides consumers with legal access to music online and is rapidly being adopted by firms because it enhances portability, enabling subscribed users to access digital content stored in remote servers irrespective of the devices used. Listening to music initially was only possible using devices such as iPods. But the current scenario is witnessing consumers switching to an access-based approach, which consists of subscribing to digital music libraries stored in the cloud. Cloud-based music services such as iTunes Match have become a market reality and have increased the popularity of music downloads. Historically, companies such as Apple Inc., Google Inc., and Amazon Inc. have primarily focused on cloud music from a storage perspective, as a remote locker for downloaded tracks. Such developments are expected to help content companies generate higher revenue from digital fronts.”
