Healthy ecosystems support diversity

We have reached the third and final part in the Future Lab article series about security ecosystems. This time we investigate important qualities that an ecosystem needs to have in place in order to be successful, but we also look at some of the pitfalls. A business network has to support diversity and is only as strong as its weakest link. Finally we get to hear a cautionary tale from the consumer electronics industry. http://futurelab.assaabloy.com/en/healthy-ecosystems-support-diversity/

The significance of standards and ecosystems

The security industry is undergoing a profound change as security technology evolves in the digital age. That is a given, an obvious truth. But a concurrent evolution — the continuing development of a Business Ecosystem that links competing companies, their suppliers and their customers in the security industry — is inextricably linked to how that profound change will result in a healthy marketplace, according to security industry consultant David Bunzel. http://futurelab.assaabloy.com/en/business-ecosystems-ii/
