Creating an Intelligent World is the Theme for Milestone Community Days EMEA

Annual Milestone partner conference to be held in Barcelona highlights intelligent video, engaging the open platform community of Europe, Middle East and Africa.


COPENHAGEN – January 31, 2018

Milestone Systems, the open platform company in video management software (VMS), will be hosting the Milestone Community Days EMEA (MIPS) February 8-10 in Barcelona, Spain. This annual event gathers hundreds of Milestone channel partners (distributors, systems integrators and consultants) as well as alliance partners (camera manufacturers, software solution integrators and technical hardware providers). Esteemed customer stakeholders and industry pundits also attend.

Creating an intelligent world

Milestone Systems’ top management will present the Milestone product and platform initiatives for 2018. With exciting input from leading industry professionals, Milestone takes a deeper look at how intelligent video systems can support people and organizations in making sense of the rapidly increasing influx of data. Intelligent video will be an enabling factor in spotting issues faster, foreseeing incidents and identifying patterns in behavior.

The event’s core keynote will be delivered by Louis Richardson, Chief Storyteller, IBM Watson, titled: “Man plus Machine > Man or Machine” and centers on the benefits that intelligent learning systems can bring.

Community solution power

The hundreds of delegates can experience the solution power of the Milestone Community at the partner showcase with more than 30 exhibitors. A major part of the event is the networking where customers connect with the Milestone partners, and partner-to-partner contacts breed new ideas and business opportunities. This is one of the key components in the Milestone community strategy: sharing knowledge and fostering ongoing innovation.

Another important part of the equation is the added emphasis on extending the Milestone open platform approach. This enables partners to provide agile and easily adaptable video business solutions. The open platform model is also a major enabler in video solutions moving beyond traditional security.

Strong community presence

The Milestone community partners will spotlight integrations with the XProtect Video Management System and add-on products ranging from advanced infrastructure solutions to video analytics on the edge and sensors as VMS devices.The sponsoring Milestone Diamond Partners are:

NetApp, Axis Communications, Hikvision, Allied Telesis

Accelerating the partner network is a priority for Milestone to effectively meet the rapidly changing needs of today and the business landscape of tomorrow.
“Milestone Community Days 2018 will bring people from across EMEA to Spain, building partnerships for the future, leading to new possibilities for the whole industry. This is the perfect opportunity for partners and customers be inspired and to get a look at the intelligent future and the benefits it will bring,” says Kenneth Hune Petersen, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer - Milestone Systems.
