The EDI Alliance had the opportunity to visit the spring NEECOM conference in Boston a few weeks ago. Being my first time, I didn't know what to expect. First of all, you cannot beat spring in New England. The snow has melted and the flowers are blooming. The humidity has not settled over the region yet and there's a light breeze in the air.

After two years of blogging, we feel that we have earned the right (unlike some top 40 artists out there) to put together a Greatest Hits of our most popular blogs.

This just in...Macy's and Bloomingdale's rolls out RFID item level tagging of clothing in ten categories beginning in February for all 810 stores plus DCs in 45 U.S. states, DC, Guam and Puerto Rico. In an effort to track inventory more easily on an automated basis, suppliers are being required to apply UHF (ultra high frequency) EPC Gen(eration) 2 RFID tags containing manufacturer, product code and a serial number in a serialized GTIN format (SGTIN-96).
