Many businesses are losing money and/or living with risk and regulatory exposure, simply because data-poor and relatively inflexible data capture systems leave them struggling to keep track of goods and assets.

This update from IT industry analyst firm Freeform Dynamics for CIOs, architects, software engineering leads and other senior IT professionals covers:

  • The impact of a shift in data capture from a hardware to a software-centric approach.
  • How today, any camera-equipped programmable device can be turned into a smart scanner.
  • Other transformational developments such as the use of augmented reality user interfaces.

“With so much current attention on digital transformation, it’s easy to forget that most business activity still relies on the use, storage and/or movement of physical ‘things’.”
