With huge volumes of visitors and staff, large and diverse surveillance monitoring needs, a heightened threat of criminal activity, and state-mandated surveillance requirements, casinos and gaming operations are one of the largest consumers of data management and video technologies. Despite this, the majority of gaming operations still rely on out-dated solutions. Additionally, retail and hospitality operators are still using antiquated technology and obsolete techniques to monitor for fraud, collusion and all types of scams.

Through the use of eConnect™ software operators can expect a dramatic return on investment usually within 3 to 6 months.  This is accomplished by synchronizing transactional data from point-of-sale (POS), casino systems and games to digital video surveillance, producing the best fraud deterrence tool in the industry.  The software tool also increases the effectiveness of employee productivity, allowing managers to easily identify common employee errors.

Douglas Florence, CPP,  VP Strategic Operations, eConnect

With thirty-nine years of security industry experience, Florence is widely regarded as a surveillance, security, gaming operations and retail subject matter expert. Prior to joining Avigilon, Florence was Director of Business Development of Global Gaming for Avigilon, Vice-President of Security and Surveillance at M Resort Spa Casino in Las Vegas where he was responsible for the management of the casino's security, surveillance, and risk management organization. Florence was also the Executive Director of Security at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas and the Director of Surveillance at The Mirage. During his retail career he worked for Grand Central Dept Stores, Neiman Marcus, Bullock's, Macy's and Broadway Department stores.  Throughout his career, Florence has been instrumental in the development of security, surveillance, and investigation operations that are widely used in gaming and retail security today.

"During my career as a gaming and retail security executive, I have relied on surveillance technology and data from business operations to meet the high-level of security required at gaming and retail  establishments," said Douglas Florence, VP Strategic Operations for eConnect™,. Douglas also said  "By delivering an unmatched level of big-data management combined with the ability to leverage existing POS, Financial Systems and Surveillance technology investments, eConnect's software solutions is a perfect choice for gaming and retail organizations looking to reduce losses to fraud, employee theft and to better manage their business.  I look forward to providing our customers the ROI that they expect, the piece of mind that their profits are protected and working with the eConnect team."

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives. This includes informational siloes where business users require one set of data and tech teams require different data. DevOps intends to bridge these gaps to make tech driven operations more aligned and efficient.
For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation.

This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
