Cloud Computing Solution and Services for RFID Based Supply Chain Management


Deploying and Implementing RFID Systems for tracking and controlling products in supply chain management is not affordable for small and midsized companies due to its complexity, cost, and difficulties pertaining data management and maintenance. Cloud computing can be used to mitigate the risks associated with the implementation and deployment of RFID based on system in supply chain management because the complex system for data filtering, management and maintenance can be implemented on the cloud that otherwise requires the purchase of new hardware, staff and professional services.
