Security Manager Statistics and Surveys 2009

by John Honovich, IPVM posted on Oct 03, 2009 About John Contact John

The needs and constraints of security end users are key elements in determining the selection of security technologies such as video surveillance. This is even more important over the last year as significant economic changes have occured.

In this premium report, we analyze and reference 7 different public surveys of security end users from the last 6 months.

The most consistent findings we see include:

  • Most security budgets have been negatively impacted with a sharp increase in the importance of price in decision making
  • The role of IT continues to increase though its exact form remains debatable (i.e., will IT control purchasing or recommend, etc.)
  • Analytics interest remains lower than other emerging video surveillance technologies with some indicators that interest is actually decreasing

Beyond these overarching trend, these surveys provide a wide range of statistics and potential trends to consider.
The complete report is available only to PRO Members.
