Evaluate Competing Technologies

Evaluate Competing Technologies

You are head of campus security and you are sitting in a meeting with the heads of IT and Facilities, the school’s Vice President of Finance and Administration, and the College President or School Principal and Superintendent. The purpose of your meeting is to consider the purchase of equipment to upgrade safety and security. There are three options on the table: a new video surveillance system, an access control system, and panic alarms/buttons for all classrooms and offices. Unfortunately, your budget is not sufficiently robust to select all three, so you need to evaluate what to buy.
This presentation will provide a systemic approach for evaluating technology so your campus picks the right technologies that upgrade performance.
