Uncovering a monumental disconnect between vendors and end users
Somewhere along the lines, as Mike Silva pointed out to me, manufacturers and integrators came up with a product and every subsequent competitor simply parroted that product. Mike was talking about access control, and how all the product essentially look and function the same – equally complex and convoluted. I noticed the same thing happening in video surveillance architectures. The products and their deployments simply do not qualify as efficient effective responses to customer needs.
I know. I can't just say that and leave it. I need to expand on the problem and propose a solution…but right now I have to get ready for a meeting. Thoughts in the meantime?
