The Integration Consortium (IC) announced the formation of a new committee chartered with establishing and promoting best practices and industry consensus that will further enable the integration of Radio Frequency Identification Device (RFID) technology and data within enterprise systems.  Inaugural members of the IC's RFID Committee include representatives from Wipro, Chronologic Systems and webMethods with working groups already being established to address the core requirements for more widespread RFID adoption, such as common technical standards, templates for various business case analysis, and expanded vendor collaboration leading to more uniform, end-to-end or partner-to-partner solutions.

During the IC's 2005 Global Integration Summit in Banff, Alberta, Canada (May 23-25, 2005), attendees will specifically have the chance to participate in live "track & trace" EPC (Electronic Product Codes) Network demonstrations in which RFID tags will be embedded within their registration badges and used to support a number of interactive programs.  In addition, the committee will be meeting during the program to address other objectives for the remainder of the year, including the creation of the IC's first annual RFID awards program to recognize vendor leadership and innovation in actual customer implementations.
