have we not crossed the chasm
Have we not crossed the chasm?
  • What is a chasm and when is it crossed?
  • RFID and the comparison to bar code
  • The lessons from standards
  • Finding the chasm
  • The other side of the chasm
what is a chasm and when is it crossed
What is a chasm and when is it crossed?

According to Webster’s:

Chasm

1: a deep cleft in the surface of a planet (as the earth) : gorge

2: a marked division, separation, or difference

what is a chasm and when is it crossed4
What is a chasm and when is it crossed?
  • Crossing the Chasm: Marketing and Selling High-Tech Products to Mainstream Customers by Geoffrey Moore - 1991
  • The most difficult step is making the transition between the early adopters and mainstream application
what is a chasm and when is it crossed5
What is a chasm and when is it crossed?
  • The chasm is crossed when a technology becomes “mainstream”
  • A technology is “mainstream” when it is “everywhere”
rfid and the comparison to bar code
RFID and the comparison to bar code
  • RFID and bar code can track things
  • Bar code had its most visible application start in April 1973
  • Bar code grew slowly then rapidly
  • Bar code is everywhere
  • Bar code has crossed the chasm
the lessons from standards bar code
The lessons from standards: bar code
  • After UPC in 1973, first industry standards in 1982
  • Early application standards for Military, Automotive and Healthcare in early 80’s
  • First bar code quality standard 1990
  • Bar code was “everywhere” by 1995 to 2000
the lessons from standards rfid
The lessons from standards: RFID
  • First industry standards UHF in 2004
  • Early application standards for Military, Automotive and Retail mid 2000’s
  • First RFID quality standard in process
  • RFID will be “everywhere” by ????
finding the chasm
Finding the chasm
  • Growth of scanning supermarkets
  • Growth of early bar code industry
  • Growth of current RFID industry
  • Growth of future RFID industry

the other side of the chasm
The other side of the chasm
  • RFID has yet to reach the “mainstream”
  • Like early bar code applications, current successful RFID applications tend to be “closed-loop”
  • Standards will eventually stabilize and support rapid open-system growth
  • RFID will cross the chasm
the other side of the chasm20
The other side of the chasm

It is difficult to make predictions - particularly about the future.

(Confucius, Winston Churchill, Groucho Marx, 'Yogi' Berra and several others: Nature 455, 729, 9 October 2008)
