Systems have become more open and interoperable, creating new data sources mined through digital means an important component that enables agencies and organizations to achieve different business outcomes. The convergence of Information Technology (IT) and Operating Technology (OT) has connected billions of sensing devices, communicating with one another to enable direct control and complete monitoring of physical spaces. The advancement of technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and Internet of Things has the ability to translate real world data into value, facilitating end-users to streamline operations and improve experiences. This digital transformation has disrupted human-to-machine interactions and increased the complexity to understand and manage data. With the evolution of a fresh set of risks and vulnerabilities within the physical space, terrorism and physical security threats have become more prevalent and unpredictable these days. Especially with the rise of populations in these urban spaces, organizations are faced with new sets of physical security challenges and threats. Increasingly, the requirements and standards of securing physical spaces have been changing and it is crucial to understand human interactions occurring in different spaces to gain better space awareness. Organizations need to leverage on the capabilities of cutting edge analytics applications and processing technologies to extract valuable real-time data analysis to perform proactive monitoring, plan actions and safeguard assets. With the advancement of edge technology, it has enabled data collection and analysis to be performed at the device through automated analytical computation. Instead of waiting for the data to be sent back to a centralized data server, users are able to obtain analyzed and aggregated real-time intelligence. The convergence of technologies, devices and systems has expanded the usage of video content to become a medium that is able to provide real-time intelligent insights for users to make sophisticated decisions. Making sense of these huge amounts of data is made possible with the integration of analytical tools onto the video data platform to contextualize data for descriptive, predictive and prescriptive analysis to facilitate and automate daily business operations and processes. This industry guide focuses on end-users is an unbiased research study will cover on the following points: Creating the digital connection between the physical and virtual space Evolution of video as the NEXT data source Video as a data platform, translating real world data into value Used cases of end-users in different verticals Wed, 26 Sep 2018 04:09:14 +0100
