The Best VMS To Choose For Extensive Customization/Integration?

After reading Horace's lament about the state of seamless integretion between survelience and access control, or lack thereof, i can't help but think that there must be many one-off super solutions that have been created custom.

What VMS package is the best to use when looking to rip it apart?

Are any sold with this in mind?

Side note:

Normally if a customer develops at great expense a in-house solution, say CRM or some such, it is treated as a proprietery, competitive asset.

But does any company really view their security systems this way? Maybe retailers?
