Intel and SAP AG have entered into a deal to make radio frequency identification (RFID) technology. The joint effort will offer customers the choice of either integrating their RFID hardware directly into backend systems and business processes or using device management partners to manage their hardware environment.

Direct integration provides a streamlined approach to the customer's RFID implementation and is best utilized in less complex business environments. The device management partner approach enables the customer to manage a more complex environment comprising multiple device types from different vendors.

The collaboration introduces a new RFID concept, enabling companies to integrate RFID data directly into backend systems. Companies can implement the solution on any Intel-based RFID backend hardware such as servers and front- end hardware such as desktops, notebooks and RFID readers-regardless of provider. The solution is expected to result in faster adoption of RFID devices, creating a plug and play environment. Intel will also supply the necessary technology to allow for a device management solution to be delivered through the SAP NetWeaver platform.
