Intermec’s line of Radio Frequency Device ( RFID ) hardware devices will be supported by Microsoft Corp.’s BizTalk Server 2006 R2. BizTalk Server 2006 R2, which launches today, enables customers of all sizes to connect core business processes across applications, platforms and partners. Combined with Intermec passive UHF RFID systems, BizTalk Server 2006 R2 gives customers a uniform way to communicate with and manage RFID devices on the Microsoft Windows platform.
BizTalk Server 2006 R2, in conjunction with Intermec’s RFID hardware solutions will help businesses of all sizes gain significant benefits through the adoption of RFID technology, the company said. Since BizTalk Server 2006 R2 is built on the Microsoft .NET Framework architecture, developers are able to build and develop RFID applications using many of Microsoft’s tools including Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Visual Studio, and Microsoft Dynamics.
“The combination of Intermec RFID technologies and Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006 R2 capabilities will simplify the adoption of RFID for enterprise customers,” said Steven Martin, Director of the Connected Systems Division at Microsoft.
