Presentation Summary

  • The rise of cloud computing is eerily similar to RFID. So it's no surprise that the two technologies are closely tied.
  • The exploding acceptance of cloud computing is expected to accelerate the adoption of RFID technology over the next 12-24 months.
  • A cloud-based architecture will likely enable a rush to RFID systems by those that deemed the technology too expensive in the past.
  • By using the cloud, enterprises gain numerous advantages when deploying RFID technology, notably lower IT costs, the elimination of costly infrastructure requirements, more frequent technology updates, and a faster overall rollout with a quicker path to ROI.
