n 2008, the security industry buzzword was ‘convergence.’ It was a statement on how the market was shifting from analog video surveillance cameras to digital IP surveillance cameras. The experts were saying how the convergence would top 51% percent digital IP by 2009. It took until 2015.
If we look at another part of the market, we see the earliest conversations about Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) around 2010.
According to Wikipedia, Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) is a category of software that provides a platform and applications created by middleware developers, designed to integrate multiple unconnected security applications and devices and control them through one comprehensive user interface.

We caught up with James Chong, CEO of Vidsys to talk about the convergence of PSIM to Converged Security and Information Management (CSIM) and what that means for customers. Founded in 2005 by James Chong, Vidsys is headquartered in Vienna, Virginia with additional offices in Marlborough, Massachusetts, the Middle East, the United Kingdom, and Brazil.
