Integrating RFID data into an enterprise application has been a challenge to RFID adoption, especially for small to medium enterprises. So far RFID middleware has been used to bridge RFID readers and enterprise applications. As middleware and enterprise application are usually deployed using different platform, it proved to be complicated and costly to realize real-time integration. This paper proposes an event-driven business process management approach that unifies RFID event processing and business event processing. The approach exploits event driven architecture to efficiently manage the event data, and also to provide one single extensible platform for enterprises to extend that functional capability. It fully complies with service oriented architecture by leveraging the loose-coupling and vertical integration capability.
