An Integrator’s Perspective: The Value of IT Solutions
in Surveillance Environments

The modern business is seeking out more advanced levels of business and security intelligence than ever before. As a systems integrator, you’ve most likely heard your customers say they want to gain more actionable intelligence from their systems and networks in order to inform decision-making. Service providers must find new ways to address this customer need in more reliable and efficient ways.

Video surveillance is a critical addition to data analysis and situational awareness because it allows organizations to visualize potential anomalies, events and trends. For example, in a highly populated city, multiple first responders can leverage video to assess a situation in real time and execute a more informed and quicker response to an incident. Casino surveillance operators can leverage cameras to monitor for compliance with industry and government regulations. Retailers also find video useful to determine the success of promotional campaigns within stores.

These scenarios point to the growing benefit of video surveillance as a security and business optimization tool. As the value of video increases, systems integrators need to help their customers ensure this investment is protected. System failures — where live or recorded video becomes inaccessible and data lost — leave organizations exposed to increased risks, vulnerabilities and operational interruptions. This is not an option for any modern business.

In this blog series, we’ll take a closer look at how system integrators can deliver new levels of video and data protection, system performance and cost efficiency to their customers while transforming the security operations center.  Learn how IT technologies that deliver significant efficiency to enterprise IT help your business increase customer retention and new business opportunities. Tune in for next week’s post to learn how to align IT innovation with best practices and video surveillance.
