As Hype Becomes Reality, a Radio Frequency Identification Ecosystem Emerges Part Three: Radio Frequency Identification Opportunities Abound and Summary
We may soon find radio frequency identification (RFID) tags routinely associated with common products. However, in order for RFID to achieve its full potential, the gap between the vision of RFID and the current realities of RFID must be closed.
: tags, transponders, antennae, and sensory network equipment will also have a profound impact on the potentially ubiquitous nature of RFID technology. As far as implementation costs are concerned, practice makes perfect; so as more and more RFID implementations are completed by experienced systems integrators and as the ecosystem of service providers grows, competition should drive implementation costs downward. In addition, while maintenance contracts for RFID services can generate substantial service
As Hype Becomes Reality, a Radio Frequency Identification Ecosystem Emerges Part Two: The Middleware Dilemma, Partnerships, and What Next?
Given the pressures on radio frequency identification (RFID) middleware vendors, pure-play middleware suppliers will likely either diversify or get absorbed by larger companies. All RFID vendors, regardless of category, will tend to form partnerships to hasten time to market.
: that populate an enterprise s sensory network expands. However, the converging dynamics of data collection are putting pressure on middleware, and this is taking its toll. As a result, SAP , IBM , and other vendors are adding features that overlap with typical middleware functionality. Middleware functionality is also being incorporated into some reader devices. However, middleware players are also expanding their product footprints—into business intelligence (BI) and data analytics. Companies are

Supply Chain Collaboration: The Key to Success in a Global Economy
Supply Chain Collaboration: The Key to Success in a Global Economy. Download Free Technology Research White Papers Linked To Supply Chain Collaboration. Outsourcing and global competition are forcing companies to transform their supply chains from linear processes into adaptive networks. Communities of customer-centric, demand-driven companies must share knowledge in order to adapt to changing markets, and respond to shorter life cycles. Discover how supply chain management (SCM) solutions can help your company create a truly adaptive and collaborative supply network.
: customers. The Role of Sensory Technology When properly implemented, sensory technology such as RFID enables you to deliver a level of visibility into the supply chain that was previously unavailable. It provides the automated functionalities to feed real-time data into your supply chain systems. For example, you can track and trace EPCs across the supply network, receive alerts when problems arise, and share EPC-related data with your trading partners. You can also attach RFID tags to pallets, cases, or

It analyzes the data and presents the results visually in many forms, making the data fairly easy to understand—and easy for maintenance personnel to use, such as trending graphs and flashing alarms. Ivara EXP then triggers the appropriate maintenance work in the user company s CMMS modules, while key performance indicators (KPI) provide metrics and tangible evidence on how the reliability of equipment
Retailers, Consumers, and the Recession: Weathering the Storm
The latest economic crisis has retailers of all sizes closing their doors. On the flip side, consumers are tightening their pocketbooks due to layoffs and lack of brand trust. So, how are retailers and consumers weathering the storm?

Delivery Architecture - What it Means...
Once we cross the border of the enterprise, traditional enterprise-centric systems fail to provide visibility or a way to understand and act, all in sync with our supply chain partners. This is why the delivery architecture of an application is critical, especially for addressing multi-enterprise interactions.

So, today s systems are not just about the data, but also the infrastructure below, between, and beside the information (algorithms, transaction logic, etc.) that needs to be addressed in order to create today s global
The Middle Kingdom - From Wired to Wireless
Confused about RFID middleware? RFID middleware has a critical role to play in cleaving together and clarifying the signals and intelligence, bidirectionally from the device layer to the business applications, or out to the communications infrastructure, to the web or satellites. This article explains it all.

The Middle Kingdom is the world between the physical world and the digital world. And to add to the definition—middleware may span from the device to the edge (the border, and slightly over) of your kingdom. Mobile devices need bidirectional communications beyond the firewall. So the challenge for middleware in this sense is to traverse the world of air to the
