Assessing technology at ISC West: An integrator's perspective

Security-Net members share advice on what to look for at this year’s show

Alessandrini: I wouldn’t say specific technologies are the priority rather what products can address or solve an immediate need. If the product or technology results in an extensive overhaul or costly purchase this may have to be budgeted for the following year.

Hogan: Right now my clients are focused on video analytics that can provide a return on investment.

Ladd: Technologies that are a top priority for my customers are those that enhance and integrate with existing systems. Many of our current customers are demanding software integration to Active Directory, a management tool.

SIW: At the end of the day, what are you looking to get out of this year’s show that you might not have in recent years?   

Hogan: This year I’m hoping to get a better understanding of wireless options for high bandwidth applications.

Ladd: I’m always looking to increase my knowledge on products and services available in our market.
