Genetec Citigraf Big Data Platform Analyzed

By: Brian Karas, Published on Oct 26, 2017

A big industry debate is whether VMS software is now a commodity.

However, Genetec believes it can charge a substantial premium for higher-end software. One of those systems is Genetec's new Citigraf, which they describe as:

Genetec Citigraf is a decision support system that unifies public safety operations across city departments through situational awareness and the proper dissemination of information.

 

But what is that? Who would benefit from it? How does it work? What does it cost?

In this report, we share feedback from Genetec, and analyze the competitive positioning of the system.
