A massive transformation is underway in the safety and security world. The days of DVR-like safety and security systems are long gone. Based on my more than 15 years in the business, I spot four key trends:

  • Emergence of new devices
  • Higher pixel resolution
  • Increase in device count and retention times
  • Need to integrate safety, security and IoT data

A significant trend across safety and security is the evolution of the underlying technologies such as connected Internet of Things (IoT) devices, Edge Computing, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML). These technologies can be used to develop video analytics solutions which would help harness the value of safety and security data.

Here are some intriguing data points to consider:

  • There will be 41.6 billion IoT-connected devices by 2025, an increase of 75% over 2019.¹
  • The data generated from IoT cameras and other devices will amount to 79.4 ZB in 2025, up from 13.6 ZB in 2019.²

These data points illustrate that safety and security is now a data challenge. Organizations face escalating demands for accessing, managing, storing and securing massive amounts of safety and security data that is growing exponentially. We can broadly categorize the growing infrastructure challenges into these three categories:

  • Management: The storage silos / separate islands of storage associated with the traditional IT infrastructure makes it hard to deploy, configure and manage.
  • Scalability: As it is hard to scale efficiently with traditional storage, organizations find it time consuming and labor intensive to keep pace with growing data needs and evolving workloads.
  • Availability: System uptime can be compromised in case of disk failures which may result in lost data and regulatory non-compliance.

To tackle these challenges, organizations require a safety and security solution that is enterprise-grade, resilient, scalable and reliable. Organizations need to simplify the Edge Computing and IoT deployment to build an open foundation that scales to meet the demands of a connected world. The need to integrate with other applications like analytics and evidence management are part of the everyday demands placed on the safety and security department and the technology entrusted to deliver the video on demand.
