full article

Cloud computing continues to gain steam. A study from Saugatuck Technology predicts that almost two-thirds of all new business application/solution decisions will be cloud-based by 2015.

As RFID adoption continues to skyrocket, the benefits of cloud computing are expected to further accelerate deployment of the technology. By utilizing the cloud, enterprises can avoid costly infrastructure build-outs required for RFID technology. Cloud computing can also make the integration of new data seamless, benefiting stakeholders at both ends of the supply chain.

Pallet firm CHEP, Coca-Cola, Vail Resorts and many other companies already rely on the cloud to harness the crucial data that RFID provides them. The sweet spot for 2011 is likely supply chain applications, which are expected to flock to the cloud for hosting of RFID data and operations.
