1 Microsoft RFID Industry Focus

2 Microsoft RFID Vision Create an ecosystem for scalable, deployable, lowest cost business solutions powered by RFID Deliver Microsoft Platform to enable business applications –Lowest TCO –Inclusive (RFID, Barcodes, EPC, GTIN, etc.) –Hardware agnostic –Scalable, Deployable, Extensible Develop business solutions for SMB Support and participate in standards development and deployment –EPC Global (UCC, EAN) –Others (ISO, AIAG…) Deliver low cost, innovative, standards-based RFID systems that are easy to deploy and manage

3 Requirements of the Platform Comprehensive, extensible programming model and tools Easy to deploy and manage Secure – by default Reliable – available, fault-tolerant Scalable – up and out Rich, consistent user experience (IT Pro, Developer, Business User) Componentized functionality but “better together” Integration with existing systems

4 Microsoft & RFID RFID Strategy Partner driven strategy for enterprise customers Provide the base platform: Windows Server, SQL Server, BizTalk Server, XML WebServices, WinCE & XPe RFID enable Platform for partners to develop business solutions RFID enable Microsoft Business Solutions for SMB RFID Engagement RFID deployments at major retailers Engaged in many pilots with partners EPC Global Membership RFID Partner Council Architectural guidance for ITPros and Business Architects RFID Views RFID compliance is an increasing priority for Enterprise customers Businesses are looking for complete RFID enabled solutions Partners are looking for an enabling platform Item level adoption Standardization and privacy concerns must be addressed to facilitate rapid adoption

5 RFID Vertical Industry Solutions

6 RFID in Retail Pallet & Case Level Most of the early adoption Product visibility across the supply chain Smarter operations, operational efficiencies Inventory reduction Product availability in stores, backrooms, DCs Item level scenarios Product availability on the store shelf Item level inventory visibility at the store level Smarter Shopping, customer convenience Customer service, service errors (pharmacies)

8 RFID in Life Sciences Clinical Development Clinical trials and materials management Avoiding medical errors Dosing and protocol compliance Forms completion / data integration Lab sample tracking Medical device status, management, data interchange (“life of a device”) Public Product Use Dosing compliance Labeling Dosing information/reference Product history/genealogy Improper importing/exporting Sales & Marketing Anti-theft and shrinkage management Product tracking and distribution compliance Anti-counterfeit and fraud detection Shipping and inventory management Regulatory compliance Manufacturing & Supply Chain Shipping and inventory management Product recall Improper importing/exporting Manufacturing execution/efficiency Quality management Maintenance management

9 RFID in Pharmaceutical Industry Business Benefits Ability to identify individual bottles, containers of Rx Remotely track movement and location of drugs Provide assurance that the ID on the Rx has not bee forged Reduce gray market sales Increase efficiency of clinical trial by reducing start up delays, reduce trial errors and trial dropouts EPC Drivers Rx counterfeit – 88% seized Rx are not approved US use 40% Rx made in Mexico, Argentina, Colombia, India, China, may be counterfeit Inventory management Regulatory compliance Product return, recalls
