SAP AG and Intel have teamed up to develop a method of introducing RFID data directly into backend systems. Introduced Thursday at the Cebit show, the method still leaves open the RFID implementation method of using device-management partners.

The companies said the collaborative solution could pave the way for creating plug-and-play RFID environments.

"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 firms stated. "Intel will also supply the necessary technology to allow for a device-management solution to be delivered through the SAP NetWeaver platform."

The Intel-SAP approach is aimed at providing more intelligence from the reader hardware as well as developing seamless integration for system architectures, such as SAP Auto-ID Infrastructure. Companies will be able to better control hardware combinations made up of sensors and actors working with RFID reader hardware, the firms indicated.
