Most organizations typically manage their physical and digital security teams, data, and systems as separate silos. The trend toward security convergence, which has long been an area of industry interest, has accelerated in recent years as threats become multi-faceted, more security systems are digitized and connected, and systems are actively integrated.

Demand for an Integrated Command and Control Center (ICCC) to gain a holistic view of the security situation is gaining momentum.Command and control software serves as the brain behind ICCCs that controls, governs, and monitors all connected systems.

Command and control software connects multiple discrete systems at various locations and integrates different security applications and equipment on a centralized platform.This provides holistic security control, minimizing complexity and allowing better decision making.

The analyst forecasts global command and control software market spending to reach $21.41 billion by 2030. Airports, Safe Cities, and Critical National Infrastructure (CNI) are 3 core sectors where large ICCC projects are being commissioned. These sectors realize the power of smart security systems and invest heavily in these projects to build a robust digital foundation. To build their programs, these industries focus on ways to conduct security operations and enable a more integrated, data-driven, and proactive approach to citizen/employee safety, threat prevention, and overall crime reduction strategies. Command and control software is a highly fragmented market with hundreds of regional and sector-specific players. The analyst narrowed the list from 25 key command and control software players to the top 10 with significant deployments in Airports, Safe Cities, and CNI installations and independently plotted them on this radar™ analysis. The radar™ is a robust analytical tool that allows us to evaluate companies across two key indices: their focus on continuous innovation and their ability to translate their innovations into consistent growth. Our primary and secondary analyses span the entire value chain of each industry, identifying organizations that consistently develop new growth strategies based on a visionary understanding of the future and a proven ability to effectively address emerging challenges and opportunities. In that vein, the radar™ serves as a truly dynamic solution to continuously benchmark companies’ future growth potential with clear insight into their core strengths and weaknesses. The radar™ reveals the market positioning of companies in an industry using their Growth and Innovation scores as highlighted in the radar™ methodology. The document presents the competitive profiles of each company in the radar™ based on their strengths, opportunities, and a small discussion on their positioning. The analyst examines hundreds of companies in an industry and benchmarks them across 10 criteria on the radar™, where the leading companies in the industry are then positioned.
