OAT Technology

RFID Integration with Enterprise Systems (SAP, Oracle, IBM, Deltek, Solumina)

RFID and sensor data is real-time, high volume and operational in nature. RFID technology is designed to inform and enrich systems and processes, not be an end in itself. To that end, most OAT deployments include enterprise systems integration of some kind. The table below provides examples of OAT RFID deployments by enterprise system. Links to integration resources for specific systems are included at the foot of the page.

Selected OAT RFID Deployments by Process Area, Enterprise System

The following table lists selected OAT deployments with the most common enterprise systems including SAP, Oracle, IBM, Deltek, Solumina, as well as in-house or proprietary systems, which are RFID-enabled using web services or OAT APIs.
