Mark Roberti: Technologies Needed for a True Digital Transformation

May 13, 2018—Last week, I explained why I believe that radio frequency identification technology is the foundation on which most successful digital transformations will be built (see RFID Is the First Step Toward Digital Transformation). This week, I would like to explain how I see RFID meshing with other technologies to enable companies to truly transform the way they do business.

The first order of any company breaking down the barrier between the physical and digital worlds is to be able to identify, track and manage all physical objects that are part of its operations—files, manuals, tools, jigs, containers, vehicles, parts, raw materials, work-in-process, finished inventory and so on. For items that are relatively small and low-cost, and that have no power source, that means using passive RFID.
