Abstract
This memo reports on factors that drive and inhibit the digitalization of security systems. The reported factors are as follows:



Technology-push factors

• Need to lower costs on the end-user side, i.e. replacing labour with technology

• Perceived convenience and ease-of-use of digital systems

• Digital products can be connected to the current enterprise network; enabling an expanding set of security features

• Bandwidth and storage limitation and the political ‘battle of the bandwidth’

• Consultants and systems integrators are pushing “old” solutions

• Fear of technology challenging current position, i.e. job security, of security officers

• Fear of being ‘locked-in’ to only one supplier of security (Less)
