This week I presented on Microsoft BizTalk RFID at the MICSUG (Microsoft Integration and Connected Systems User Group) for the Washington, DC area. The presentation was held at the Microsoft office in Reston.
The main topics that were addressed were architecture of the RFID code base, RFID as a platform, and case studies which demonstrated significant ROI’s. In addition we discussed how RFID and BizTalk work together.
RFID demonstrates a big step forward in BizTalk Server’s capabilities because it now enables connectivity to actual devices rather than software to software transactions which are traditional means of using BizTalk. It’s a brand new paradigm and the audience sensed the shift as the realization that almost any device can be tied into an enterprise using BizTalk.
