34 Security Business / / April 2019 Is interoperability of products via a third party (e.g. ONVIF, OSDP, PSIA, etc.) an important consideration when buying or recommending technology? YES 78% NO 22% "STANDARDS and interorperability are absolutely the key to growth and advancement of any technology. One manufacturer may make the best NVR for the situation, while another may make the right camera with the right features. Being able to use different components from different manufacturers that strictly adhere to standards makes the impossible more possible." "The industry continues to demand open architecture as the norm." "We put on an extremely successful OSDP workshop in 2018." "This is not typically something that comes up in our discussion, but it is part of our partner strategy." "OUR CUSTOMER BASE hasn't required this yet, so for us currently no – but it is coming as system sophistication and customer knowledge increases." "The interoperability of products gives clients the best value for their investment, as our industry is continually creating innovative solutions to solve client security and life safety issues. As technology continues to change and cybersecurity concerns continue to grow, it is imperative to utilize products that can easily interface with each other."
