The main objective of this article is to provide some insights into radio frequency identification (RFID) technology and the electronic product code (EPC) network and investigates their impacts on mobile B2B eCommerce. Based on empirical data gathered from interrelated firms of a supply chain, several scenarios integrating the RFID–EPC network have been(More)
In the growing literature on RFID and other network technologies, the importance of organizational transformation at the supply chain level has been recognized. However, the literature lacks conceptual model development and salient mechanisms for achieving the level of organizational transformation required for stakeholders to realize the full business(More)
The number of devices connected to the Internet of Things (IoT) by the year 2020 may be as high as 75 billion. Long before that, big data analytics will be needed to make use of the data generated by the Internet of Things. While the technical issues needed to create the Internet of Things are substantial, little attention has been given to the behavioral,(More)
While geographic information systems (GIS) can provide information on the static locations of critical infrastructure and evacuation routes, they do not provide the dynamically changing locations of things and people on the move. In contrast, radio frequency identification (RFID) wireless network technology can automatically identify and track the movement(More)
In this paper, a comprehensive review of articles published between 1997 and 2011 in the Journal of Medical Systems (JMS) on RFID technology is presented. A total of 22 papers are analyzed using a classification framework that has three dimensions: RFID-enabled healthcare applications, RFID-enabled healthcare issues, and RFID-enabled healthcare benefits. In(More)
The main objective of this paper is to analyze RFID technology as an innovation concept through the lens of the diffusion of innovation theory. Drawing on the extant literature on the diffusion of innovations –with an emphasis on innovation classifications and the “open innovation”–, as well as on an analysis of a longitudinal case study conducted in a(More)
