Thursday, September 09, 2004The prospering survivors of the supply chain technology shakeout are likely to gain a significant growth boost from RFID.Supply chain management and logistics (SCM/L) players have felt uneven impacts from the cool economic climate of the past few years.It is expected that some companies in a sub-sector ARC dubbed "logistics visibility and control (LV&C)" — including Yantra, Optum Corp., and Savi Technology Inc. — have been doing very nicely in terms of sales.The SCM centric industry is now headed toward RFID. This would give SCM players a new lease of life. The adoption of the wireless tracking technology will be very gradual.SCM companies shall all support RFID in their software products. Any vendor worth his salt will do the same. But vendors shouldn't over invest in RFID, either. The retail industry is still in a mode where companies are experimenting with RFID, at best. RFID's widespread adoption would substantially change the ERP vendors product offerings as well in the near future. Already independent ratings suggest that SAP RFID middleware is the leader of the pack.
