The Great Conversation, East Coast version

 - 
Wednesday, October 29, 2014

I’m on my way back to Maine from Chantilly, Va., where I attended most of day 2 of The Great Conversation's inaugural East Coast event.

Sponsored by Aronson Security Group, The Great Conversation brings together end users and selected integrators for discussions, case studies and panel discussions. It takes place annually in March in Seattle, where ASG is based.

The new East Coast event is co-sponsored by Kratos and the Security Executive Council.

Yesterday I attended a talk by Steve Goodman, the technology and communications center director for Brigham Young University. Goodman talked about a massive upgrade of its access control system, and how ASSA ABLOY worked with BYU to come up with a wireless lock solution that BYU could use with its existing 802.11 network and Software House system.

BYU served as its own integrator for the installation, only calling in its outside systems integrator as an advisor. Because it has a very strong IT department, that’s what BYU has always done, Goodman said. BYU will call in an outside integrator when it’s doing an installation that it has no experience with, such as when it upgraded its Software House CCure system to the newest version.
