Improving efficiency is a major driver for increasing workflow automation and data integration, whether in software development or in application domains such as enterprise computing. Recently, RFID has been boosting workflow efficiency across production and supply networks. This physical identification technology relies on radio transmitters and receivers embedded in products of all types to itt >re and remotely retrieve data. It illustrates how the traditionally separate worlds of embedded and IT software are merging, and it demands skills in both worlds. Christian Floerkemeier and Flgar Fleisch describe the software issues in deploring RFID.
