As we keep getting asked about the reasons for choosing evalink, our native cloud-based alarm management platform, we would like to share the key points decision-makers should consider when taking the next step towards digitalization.

1. Leverage the advantages of the cloud

Many well-established alarm management systems are based on legacy technology frameworks, which are not exactly suited for the cloud environment. In most cases, only migrating such systems into the cloud will result in higher costs and lower availability. That creates frustration and an aversion within organizations. Taking full advantage of cloud services and benefits requires a native cloud architecture that is serverless and microservices-based for flexibility and quality-driven development. The architecture of evalink is designed redundantly, which guarantees the highest availability of all offered services.

2. Faster time to market

Cloud service providers such as AWS (Amazon Web Services) now offer more than 8,000 services such as machine learning, facial recognition, and security services to protect data that developers can implement. With new features appearing on the market faster than ever, this is a tremendous advantage. Since not all new functions have to be developed, cloud services offer a speed advantage compared to traditional alarm management systems.

3. Benefit from managed platforms

Cloud-based platforms have become standard in many industries because the advantages are obvious and have convinced many decision-makers. Nowadays, well-trained IT specialists who can take care of the infrastructure in terms of operations and security are hard to find. However, they are essential for professional security companies. Managed platforms address precisely these types of challenges. A team of highly skilled engineers ensures the 24/7 operation of the platform and frequently implements new features without downtime. Security is getting complex and can seriously harm the business when it is not considered an ongoing process. IT security also requires specialists with the fundamental knowledge to ensure that the system and its data are always protected. No hardware and almost unlimited scalability are other interesting features that managed platforms bring to the table.

4. Get value out of your data

In the security industry, we face an explosion of data. Chances are, everyone knows that data can provide new insights and new intelligent ways to serve customer needs. Unfortunately, many security companies cannot use
their data because their traditional systems do not prepare the data for sophisticated use. As soon as artificial intelligence, machine learning, or advanced analytics become necessary, cloud-based alarm management platforms like evalink are the right place for data aggregation, data preparation, and data visualization.

5. Efficiency based on automation

As a complex process, alarm management is very often handled manually. The high number of false alarms requires constant attention from the operators to ensure customer protection. evalink provides a full set of automation tools that drives tremendous efficiency into security organizations. 

Various tools are available for this purpose: 

  • Alarm verification through video, audio, and text-to-speech capabilities
  • Customer/installer portal for digital interaction and updated data
  • Integrated marketplace for interaction with other systems to complete customer service
  • Flexible and easily configurable workflows
  • Analytic and machine learning applications for continuous improvement

6. Marketplace for holistic security services

Security companies are challenged by numerous systems and various protocols that should be connected to the alarm monitoring system. Customers increasingly expect a holistic approach to security services that require the interaction of many systems. Our evalink evalink marketplace is precisely built for that. All systems published on evalink.io are ready to be used together with all evalink features.

Concluding remarks 

Conventional systems cannot deliver the above advantages, or only partially. Of course, it depends on the vision and strategy you have as a security company. Maybe a traditional alarm management system fits into your roadmap. But if your vision includes a digital transformation strategy based on services, cloud-based alarm management platforms are our recommendation.
