Presentation (8.3 kbs .pdf)
We are all waiting for the RFID adoption curve to take off and
for RFID tags to surpass bar code labels as the universal standard
for tracking inventory. We all can see the marginal value that is
provided by RFID over Bar Code alone. Still, the adoption of RFID
tags at the global scale of bar codes has yet to happen. Mr. Dean
Frew, Managing Partner of Incucomm, Inc., a Knowledge Network Partner
of the World Internet Center, will put forth his ideas about the
future of reality of the RFID tag development and examine just when
and how the high point of the growth curve will come about. Mr.
Frew will present a pragmatic view of what is missing in the value
chain for adoption to take off. He will consider some less obvious
elements of the value chain and will also provide an customer-based
opinion on which of the different "flavors" will likely be successful
Please come join the Challenge-the-Expert session to "challenge"
Mr. Frew and to contribute to shaping strategic thinking around
the RFID tag market.
