Datastreams are potentially infinite sources of data that flow continuously while monitoring a physical phenomenon, like temperature levels or other kind of human activities, such as clickstreams, telephone call records, and so on. Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology has lead in recent years the generation of huge streams of data. Moreover, RFID based systems allow the effective management of items tagged by RFID tags, especially for supply chain management or objects tracking. In this paper we introduce SMART (Simple Monitoring enterprise Activities by RFID Tags) a system based on outlier template definition for detecting anomalies in RFID streams. We describe SMART features and its application on a real life scenario that shows the effectiveness of the proposed method for effective enterprise management.
