MEET THE SPEAKER
Mike Graen has been involved in Walmart’s RFID efforts since 2005.
While working at Procter & Gamble as its global technology leader, Mike was tasked with aligning P&G’s technology with Walmart’s systems on a world-wide basis. This work resulted in EDI (Electronic Data Information) and GSDN (Global Data Sharing Network). Later, when working at Walmart, Mike developed Walmart’s RFID/EPC technology and Supplier Portal Allowing Retail Coverage (SP2.0). Since 2015, Mike has been consulting with Walmart on On Shelf Availability (OSA) by leveraging RFID, robotics, and electronic shelf labels.
Highly recommend to anyone trying to understand RFID. Loved the interactive aspect of Mike's presentation. Very fun way to engage with the group. Mike is a terrific speaker, was able to roll with the questions nicely.
