Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology promises to revolutionize the supply chain and change the way business is done. The world's biggest buyers - from the DoD to international retailers - are requiring their suppliers to place radio frequency identification (RFID) tags on their packaging or products as a condition of doing business. Huge amounts of data will be generated, new applications will be born, existing software must be revised and large integration/implementation projects will be undertaken.

All of this creates a major market potential and new opportunities for technology companies. Are you ready? This program will provide critical information on the significant challenges of the technology, the rapidly emerging opportunities for the software and services sector, and emerging standards.

Panelists will include a noted industry analyst and practitioners engaged in developing RFID technology and solutions.

Panelists to include:

  • Christopher Boone, Program Manager, U.S. Vertical Industry Research: Retail/Wholesale, Energy/Utilities, IDC
  • Burt Rubenstein, Chief Technology Officer, GenuOne (Moderator)
  • Marc Linster, Ph.D., Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, Avicon, Inc.
  • Kenneth Traub, Ph.D., Chief Technical Officer, ConnecTerra
