SECAUCUS, NJ--Panasonic Security Systems has issued a whitepaper addressed to the IT marketplace entitled Enhancing IT Contributions To Business Operations With IP Surveillance. The whitepaper is aimed at informing IT personnel of the role IP video surveillance can take as a business tool to help the IT department improve operations and add value.
"The position of IT in business is evolving rapidly," said J.M. Allain, president, Panasonic System Solutions Company. "As operations increasingly fall under the control and responsibility of IT management, the IT department has gained both responsibility and accountability for implementing enterprise level business operations."
In addition to defining the growth and scope of IT responsibilities, the whitepaper explores the ways in which IP video surveillance can be used to add to the overall contributions of the IT department, both internally and via profit-generating business operations. With the video surveillance system on the IT backbone, critical operational areas ranging from risk management to human resources, process management and inventory control can enhance the traditional security role of video surveillance and provide a greater return on the investment in IT.
The whitepaper also discusses the operational concerns that the integration of IP surveillance with the IT network may raise, including network utilization by segment, aggregated network utilization, quality of service, security, network connections, protocols and more.
"Bringing video surveillance to an IP-based platform has enabled a wide range of opportunities for the IT department," said Allain. "Now IT can take a leading role in using IP video surveillance as a business tool to add more value and enhance their position within the enterprise."
