Making a Case to the C-Suite: How Cloud-Native Systems Stack Up Against Legacy Solutions When it Comes to Total Cost of Ownership

It is no secret that legacy physical security providers offer ways to integrate systems such as video security, access control, alarms, and more. But doing so is often very costly, doesn’t always work as intended, and is a headache to manage over time. In contrast, cloud-native physical security systems offer these integrations built-in and manage them directly as a service, saving time and money. In this session, learn more about the benefits of a natively integrated solution, the true total cost of ownership of maintaining a legacy system, and how to make a financial case to C-Suite executives for making a transition.
