For manufacturers and retailers, the business benefits of RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) are compelling. Not only does adding RFID technology to many environments increase operational efficiency, but it provides total supply chain visibility, offers better asset tracking to help reduce internal theft, flags errors and container tampering issues, and enables better processes for product status verification. The beta of Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006 Release 2 is upgrading support for RFID and EDI. Microsoft BizTalk RFID is an innovative device management and event processing platform. It is designed to provide a scalable, extensible platform for development, deployment, and management of rich RFID and sensor solutions.
