On the Management Implications of Ubiquitous Computing: An IS Perspective

Item Type Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)

This paper describes the development and implications of Ubiquitous Computing from an IS perspective. With the advent of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and similar technologies, information systems get the capability of collecting data from the real world in real-time at a fraction of the cost of traditional manual data entry. This enables the cost-effective capture of considerably more finely grained data on the one hand and significantly more differentiated management control loops on the other. As a consequence, this development will lead to faster, more reliable and more efficient processes as well as to ‘smart' products and services.
