1 Capturing, Managing and Using RFID Information RFID and Telecommunication Services Workshop May 25th, 2004 Allen Atwell Vice President, EMEA Telecom & Wireless, Oracle
2 Why is RFID Hot Now? A Convergence of Developments Falling RFID Tag Costs Global Numbering (EPC) and Catalogs (UCCNet) UbiquitousConnectivity Supply Chain Collaboration VMI and Consignment XMLMessaging ComplianceInitiatives Wal-Mart, DoD, Metro, Tesco, JC Penney, Albertsons… Technology/Standards Enablement Business Process Evolution Broad-Based RFID Market Interest
3 Retail - Product Lifecycle Awareness Businesses with Intelligent Items Manufacturing plantManufacturing DCRetail DCRetail Warehouse – Retail Store Consumer Degree of Collaboration Labor Savings Automated data collection with RFID tags/readers. Increased product handling efficiency. Supply Visibility Accurate, real-time inventory visibility. Inventory location. Inventory history. Demand Visibility Quantity and frequency of product purchases. Date, time and locations of purchases. Product Intelligence Analysis of aggregate data over time. Supply trends. Demand trends. Key performance indicators. Increasing Benefits
4 Another example : Healthcare Estimate shows about 100,000 people die every on year in US due to medication error. (source Institute of Medecin, Washington DC) Experiments using RFID wristband for patients show a 86.6 % reduction in medication errors (US Veterans Health Administration, 173 facilities, 2002/2003) Hospital assets management through RFID and Mobile devices allows control of asset and costs limitation

12 Managing Privacy & Security Cost of Adoption Point of Sale Retail Distribution Manufacturing Commercial Security Personal Privacy Broad adoption at POS is in the future – Need standards, education and shared value proposition – Service has good value proposition, but also privacy concerns Important current concern is Commercial Security – Syndication - Who has access to which data? Becomes most critical with open-loop systems With 10g, Oracles VPD offers row level access control and masking, independently from the application Item / Shelf Pallet / Dock Doors
