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

ibm rfid middleware  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 coming into the RFID ecosystem, from all directions and from varied backgrounds. New entrants like Hewlett Packard , Texas Instruments , Philips , AT&T , NCR , and Cisco Systems

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)

Radio frequency identification (RFID) criteria cover tags and storage devices, readers, wireless hubs and servers, and the middleware necessary for evaluating an RFID system deployment. RFID systems are used in different situations that require the tracking of unique items. RFID tags, in the context of enterprise resource planning and supply chain management, make items visible from manufacturing through distribution. RFID tags may be used to carry basic information such as an address, to more complex information used at different stages of an assembly line.

RFID Case Study: Gillette and Provia Part Two: Challenges and Lessons Learned


Compliance with the market RFID mandate has unfortunately preceded the achievements of applied physics and computer science. One of the main obstacles is the lack of integration, since there is a dearth of software tools from enterprise application integration vendors to get data from RFID tags and readers into existing business systems, meaning that companies are often forced to do expensive custom integration work.

Provia Tackles RFID in a Twofold Manner Part Two: RFID Compliance


Provia's approach to radio frequency identification (RFID) compliance was to offer a bolt-on or drop-in product that works in conjunction with a company's existing logistics transactional software solution and process flows. This should put the suppliers back into control of prioritizing their IT projects because they could supposedly thereby be fairly easily and quickly made compliant with Wal-Mart or the DoD requirements for RFID. The next step for them would then be to look at how they can reap the benefits of RFID internally within their own operations.
