Few months back I had written a post titled "Managing complex RFID Network". As RFID deployments go from pilots to production managing RFID networks will be critical. It is same as managing any other mission critical systems. As I wrote in previous article BizTalk RFID comes with out of box support for System Center Operations Manager. Let's say suddenly one of our RFID devices fails in your shipping dock you want your IT folks to immediately know so they can fix it and get business underway. System center provides the infrastructure to monitor your environment in real time.
Following is a very simple demo of how BizTalk RFID and System Center Operations Manager work together to provide a solution to monitor your physical world.
Note; Ofcourse you can reuse the events and other infrastructure built for SCOM and leverage it with other systems like HP OpenView or IBM Tivoli.
