My company is seeking RFID solution providers that can help us improve our IT asset management. Specifically, we need to track IT assets, including desktops, laptops, monitors and servers. Can you provide a list of vendors and solution providers with whom you think I should get in touch?

A number of companies have rolled out RFID solutions for tracking IT assets within a data center. We have not performed an independent evaluation, so I am unable to provide any insights into the merits of one particular firm over another. I would guess they can all do an adequate job—the real choice involves who will install the system most cost-effectively, and provide the support you need.

Here are links to some stories about offerings that have been rolled out to date:
