Are You Tuned into Radio Frequency Identification?


This article examines the organizational fit of radio frequency identification (RFID) and its technology’s basic mechanics. Its prohibitive costs often account for the decision to not implement RFID. Yet some factors influencing adoption may shed new light on why RFID is important.

How RFID Technology Can Enhance Your Asset Management Program


Even though the technology has been around in some form since World War II, chances are that you think of Wal-Mart’s supply chain initiative when you hear the words “radio frequency identification,” or “RFID.” Wal-Mart is already seeing a return on their 2005 investment. But does RFID technology make as much sense for asset management as for supply chain management?

The Use of Ceiling-Ducted Air Containment in Data Centers


Ducting hot IT-equipment exhaust to a drop ceiling can be an effective air management strategy, improving the reliability and energy efficiency of a data center. Typical approaches include ducting either individual racks or entire hot aisles and may be passive (ducting only) or active (include fans). This paper examines available ducting options and explains how such systems should be deployed and operated. Practical cooling limits are established and best-practice recommendations are provided.

Mobilizing Change


It's not news that people are resistant to change. Inertia, one of the rules of the universe, applies to people as well as to objects. Many organizations, seeking to improve performance, have come unstuck by under-estimating the amount of resistance that will be offered by people. This article presents a method of mobilizing change that takes the resistance to change into account.

active passive  Sometimes the resistance is active, deliberately undermining the efforts of those implementing the change. Sometimes the resistance is passive, where people mouth the right words but keep on doing things the old way. And why not? Making changes is hard. It''s uncomfortable. And it takes a lot of effort. Consciousness and Competency I often think of a model relating to learning that I saw years ago when I think about change. We start as unconsciously incompetent —we don''t know what we don''t know, and Read More

Identix Leads Biometric Authentication


Perhaps the most exciting product released at last Comdex, was the Identix DFR-300 Fingerprint Scanner.
