RFID Trends and technology

By steheap ·
Gordon Cook - famed chronicler of the Internet and its development has researched and published a fascinating book on the evolution of the technology and the issues facing adoption. Here is a short summary:

An exhaustive examination of the technology, architecture, and business strategy of RFID, in inventory and much more important in supply chains. We examine the Auto-ID, EPCglobal VeriSign Alliance to create wireless bar codes. We explain why the creation of such won't mean a lot until it is well integrated into a wide range of corporate ERP systems. We describe why some companies that use web services, RossetaNet and appropriate supply chain software don't have any ROI yet for using RFID. Finally we look in great detail at a very innovative and comprehensive service grid approach where goods may be tracked with mobile agent software from manufacture to point of sale.

Purchasers of this report should understand at a unique level of depth the systemic, strategic and economic implications of this emerging industry.

I have put a full index and content summary on my site if anyone is interested.
