  7. 7. Investment Drivers Shifting to Business Improvement<br />Shift is Driving Increased Investmentin New Applications <br />New Applications Increasingly Supported by Complementary Technologies<br />Addressing Integration Complexity is Critical <br />
  8. 8. Business improvement to take center-stage, particularly among tier 1 and tier 2 accounts<br />AIDC Investment Drivers Shifting to Business Improvement<br />Compliance mandates are no longer leading drivers.<br />Enterprises view barcoding as the key to process improvement and cost savings<br />And ultimately, when executed well, a relatively low cost, viable source of competitive differentiation<br />
  9. 9. Fastest growing applications pertain to core to internal processes<br />Increased utilization of barcode technology to support core processes in nearly every economic sector.<br />The manufacturing example:<br />Highly penetrated from an AIDC investment perspective<br />Penetration is concentrated in compliance-driven applications<br />Emerging core process applications e.g., WIP, Quality control and warranty returns are growing the fastest.<br />Shift Driving Increased Investment in New Applications<br />
  10. 10. AIDC technologies continue to converge with barcode<br />Complementary AIDC solutions extend the value proposition of barcoding.<br />Enterprises are accompanying their investments in barcode with other AIDC technologies to achieve incremental operational benefits.<br />This trend is enabled by standards, and is driving increased demand for software and services:<br />Software solutions that aggregate data from various technology platforms, converge these data, and provide analytic and reporting capabilities<br />Consulting, integration and post-sale services that provide increased visibility to business processes, aligning the processes with established metrics and strategic objectives<br />New Applications Increasingly Supported by Complementary Technologies<br />RFID<br />
  11. 11. Increased complexity puts ISV’s and System Integrators<br />While satisfaction with manual processes is a hard objection to overcome, the other leading barriers to adoption are highly correlated.<br />A root cause analysis might suggest that integration complexity is the fly in the ointment.<br />ISV’s and system integrators will address increased complexity requirements associated with emerging applications.<br />Suppliers are augmenting their channel programs to reward partners with unique capabilities.<br />The best suppliers are creating opportunities for their shared partners to collaborate.<br />Addressing Integration Complexity is Critical<br />
