New Research Report Reveals Best-in-Class Companies Focus on

Integration with Core Business Systems

MARLTON, N.J.–(EMWPresswire)–Acsis, Inc. (http://www.acsisinc.com),

a leader in track and trace solutions for supply chain safety, security

and efficiency, today announced its sponsorship of the research report, RFID

and IT Infrastructures: Maximizing Business Value.

The research, issued by Aberdeen Group,

a Harte-Hanks Company (NYSE: HHS), offers specific recommendations to

help companies maximize the business value of their RFID and other IT

investments by achieving best-in-class levels of application and

infrastructure monitoring and management.

The research report, surveying more than 200 respondents, highlights the

business pressures and the actions being taken to address challenges

including year-over-year changes in compliance with external Service

Level Agreements (SLAs), unplanned downtime and “time to information”.

According to the research, best-in-class companies enjoyed an average of:

  • 75.4 percent year-over-year increase in the number of applications

    meeting or exceeding external SLAs

  • 16.7 percent year-over-year increase in IT infrastructure operational

    efficiency and business responsiveness

  • 1.92 percent year-over-year reduction of unplanned downtime

  • 6.9 percent year-over-year reduction in “time to information” for

    business intelligence

To enhance competitiveness and the business value of infrastructure

management and RFID investments, companies are looking to increase

integration with those RFID investments with core operational (back-office)

applications and business processes and analytics, via IT

infrastructures. This study offers specific recommendations based on

research findings and user interviews.

According to survey respondents, the top

pressures driving integration of RFID and IT infrastructure management

are the desires to ease integration of RFID-generated data with key

applications, and to maximize the business value of that data,

said Michael Dortch, senior research analyst, Aberdeen, and author of

the study. The average 6.9% year-over-year

reduction in ‘time to information’ for business intelligence enjoyed by

Best-in-Class respondents underscores the ability of RFID-IT

infrastructure management integration to deliver meaningful business

benefits beyond compliance with regulations or mandates. There is much

more business value and ROI to be had.
