January 24, 2005—Wal-Mart CIO Linda Dillman spoke at last week's National Retail Federation convention in New York, updating an eager crowd on the progress of the retailer's RFID initiative:
It is worth noting that historically cited reasons -- standards and read rates -- were conspicuously absent. With GEN 2 ratified and read rate reports strong (not only Wal-Mart's, METRO's too), two of the three hurdles to widespread RFID adoption have been significantly diminished. Now it is just a chicken-and-egg dilemma: RFID costs will fall when the number of deployments accelerates; companies will only start deploying the technology in force when prices fall.
