I think I forgot to post a link to this. Here's an article from us written for Secure ID News. It's all about our predictions for the future of the industry, and how the government is playing a large roll. And *sigh* yes, even large corporations.
If you get a chance, you should pick up the October issue of Access Control and Security Systems magazine. The feature article is called 'Biometrics in the Mainstream' and there are a few quotes from our CEO. Also included are thoughts from AuthenTec, BIO-key, LG, Fujitsu, Samsung, Identix, and much more.
Unfortunately I can't seem to find it on their website at www.securitysolutions.com, so you'll have to make due with a hand-copied intro...
Not so long ago, biometrics suppliers tended to provide uncustomized 'black boxes' with unchanging components. Now, more biometric suppliers are scrapping the myster box approach for a two-tier structure, with some companies providing specialized components and others devising complete systems from these targeted elements.
"You cannot be master of everything. Biometrics is a vast field. Taking theoretical science to tangible products requires the expertise of several different focused skill sets," says Wasif Khan, president/CEO of the Houston-based onClick Corp. "In order to bring to the marketplace scalable and reliable products that create value, companies must focus on what they know and do best. Biometrics is definitely a two-tier process, each company embedded within the other's strategy, creating success and value for each other."
