Supporting Business Capabilities with Near Field Communication Technologies
With the surge of interest in consumerisation, and the proliferation of smart devices, Near Field Communication (NFC) - the short-range, standards-based, wireless connectivity technology - looks set to make a big impact. Already being deployed in contactless payment and 'infotag' initiatives, it's clear the technology is capable of speeding up and simplifying information transmission processes.
For the enterprise, accessing, capturing and integrating the information transmitted via NFC into existing systems can potentially improve business processes, enhance (real-time) information collection and usage, and support new marketing and business channels.
The Corporate IT Forum has identified 'Innovation - doing new things; doing things in new ways' as a theme for 2012 and will undertake the consideration of a wide range of topics to support this in the forthcoming year. The innovative use of 'bleeding edge' technology such as NFC in Business Intelligence and Customer Relationship Management exemplifies this.
If you need to keep a watch on the 'emerging technologies' horizon, to better understand what new technologies might be able to do for your business, this workshop is part of a programme aiming to do just that.
Who should attend
The final agenda will be developed through consultation amongst delegates - provisional discussion areas include:
- Real-world NFC enterprise adoption - current applications, including case study
- Exploiting NFC - exploring potential and possibilities
- Deployment and integration
- Governance and security
- Innovation - environment, culture and process
