CCTV systems have become intelligent, almost autonomous, and not only provide evidence of a past event for the user to verify a possible offense. Today they are able to predict behaviors, establish patterns, optimize processes, save costs and consequently improve the Return of Investment (ROI).

Business Intelligence tools offer useful information not only to the people in charge of the security department of a company, but also to other departments with the need of useful information to increase profitability of their business. Thus departments such as IT, sales or marketing, will have statistics and graphical reports of Big Data, helping them to extract conclusions.

In short, the Security Departments become the business epicenter, and justifying the investment in technology is easily retrievable by other departments.
