Final Project Proposal

1.Name of the business.

FedEx and the CIO is Rob Carter.

2.The emerging technology being used.

SenseAware is a technology that had been innovated by FedEx. FedEx provides you with enhanced visibility during shipping, allowing you to take control of your supply chain. SenseAware also helps to heighten security, improve efficiency and productivity, and gain confidence from business partners and clients.

3. The business cases to improve.

FedEx has always been known for its exceptional creativity and power, FedEx used these traits and focused on building an environmental monitoring device for the process of shipping certain items such as biosciences, and fine art pieces. The company managed to come up with the SenseAware device, a device small enough to fit into packages and is capable of measuring and reporting temperature, exposure to light, location, and other important information about the shipment. The challenge in this process was getting the device to deliver this information to the customer, nonetheless this device is truly genius and is capable of carrying very large amounts of data.
