Oracle and Intel have joined forces to develop RFID (radio frequency identification) and sensor-based solutions that make it easier for users to process and manage data.
The suppliers will integrate Oracle Application Server 10g, Oracle Database 10g, the Oracle E-Business Suite, and Intel processor-based RFID readers, handhelds, PCs and other communications platforms.
"As companies deploy RFID and sensor networks, they need to be able to handle vast amounts of real-time data along with new business processes if they want to realise the maximum return on investment," said Tom Gibbs, director of strategy and planning for Intel’s solutions market development group.
"We have joined with Oracle to give customers an information management solution based on an architectural framework called the ‘service oriented enterprise’,” said Gibbs
“This framework will help customers make sense of the raw data and turn it into relevant product information that they can act upon as events happen in real time. We believe this approach will allow customers to realise greater value from supply chains, product inventory and warehouse management systems," he said.
