How do Savants work?

The Auto-ID Center designed Savants to act as the nervous system of the network. Savants were designed to be different from most enterprise software in that it isn’t one overarching application. Instead, Savants were designed as a distributed architecture and the software would be organized in a hierarchy to manage the flow of data. The vision was that there would be Savants running in stores, distribution centers, regional offices, factories, perhaps even on trucks and in cargo planes. Savants at each level would gather, store and act on information and interact with other Savants. This function is being absorbed into different forms of RFID middleware.
