Integrating RFID with your Mainframe: Teleconference on November 16th

Integrating RFID with your Mainframe: Teleconference on November 16th
Integrating RFID with your Mainframe
Conference Call
Tuesday, November 16th at 10:00 AM PT



RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) is already having a significant
impact on businesses and government organizations. It is becoming a
requirement for companies that do business with Wal-Mart or the Defense
Department so anyone involved with the supply chain, including
manufacturers, retailers and distribution companies, will all have to
become RFID-enabled.


It's pretty obvious that any organization that is part of the supply chain
will need to implement RFID ? but we are seeing that the impact of RFID is
reaching far beyond the obvious examples:



Airlines can save millions of dollars by using RFID to track luggage.
Libraries can keep track of books and other items more efficiently.
Operators of toll highways and bridges can reduce traffic delays by
collecting data automatically.
Cattle and other livestock producers can reduce the spread of disease
by quickly identifying the origin of an animal.


One thing is certain ? more and more organizations will be using RFID, in
more ways, to improve efficiencies and cut costs.



What does this have to do with a mainframe DBA or Systems Programmer? Quite
simply, RFID is going to generate a significant amount of new data ? the
real value rests in your ability to integrate the RFID data with existing
business systems and data. That will require integrating with systems
currently on your mainframe. Are you ready for it?

Whether you are leading the charge to implement RFID, or if you just want
to be prepared when the RFID team asks you to connect all this new
information to the mainframe, you won't want to miss this call.

Join Brian Lee, Lightyear's Manager of Software Development, as he
discusses the RFID environment and the importance of integrating RFID with
your mainframe. He'll also take a closer look at Lightyear's solution to
integrate RFID data into your existing mainframe CICS systems ? so you'll
understand how to get the RFID data into CICS without re-writing the
original applications.
