What is the best environmental monitoring solution ? First off, there is no need to adopt a proprietary technology developed by a single company. Perhaps two or more years ago, but not today. This has got to be the first thing you think about. Why? Because the owner effectively controls it, and if they disappear (go bust, abandon the technology, etc) then you will have problems. Also it gives them the ability to lock you in and you won’t be able to easily extract yourself – so you are giving them a monopoly position over your business – not a great choice for you, the customer. Also companies who are selling proprietary solutions tend not to be at the forefront of technological innovation when they have something that works. After all, they are looking to maximise the return on their development costs already spent.
