Introducing the eUpdate Blog!

Welcome to the newest format for sharing Acuity Market Intelligence’s insight and analysis with long time biometric fans as well as our expanding audience in the world of secure electronic identification – affectionately know as eID.

As Acuity’s focus has broadened to encompass a world of ePassports, eVisas, National IDs, secure Drivers Licenses, etc., where biometrics, RFID, document readers, laser engraving and a host of emerging technologies (often less than seamlessly) converge, we remain true to our principals:

Providing hype-free, data driven, reliable, often thought provoking, and sometimes controversial insight into a complex, technically driven. rapidly transforming marketplace that often defies conventional thinking.

We look forward to sharing this thinking with you as we engage in a more real-time, less formal dialogue about the state of the market, critical but sometimes overlooked developments, unexpected and surprising news, and indications of long-term trends we are following.
