RFID deployment hurt by lack of talent survey says

RFID deployment hurt by lack of talent survey says

   Deployment of radio frequency identification technology continues to be hampered by a shortage of individuals skilled in the technology, according to a new survey by the Computing Technology Industry Association to be released this week at the RFID World 2006 conference in Dallas.

   Seventy-five percent of the technology companies participating in the CompTIA survey said they do not believe there is a sufficient “pool of talent” in RFID technology to hire from. That figure is down slightly from a similar survey in 2005, when 80 percent of respondents said there was a shortage of RFID talent.

   Among companies that believe there is a talent shortage, 80 percent said the lack of individuals skilled in RFID will impact adoption of the technology. The figure is significantly higher than a year ago, when 53 percent of responding companies said the shortage of talent would have a negative impact on RFID adoption.
