2. In regards to the organization you have chosen to analyze this semester, what types of enterprise applications are they currently using and how are they using them? What other enterprise applications might you recommend for your organization, and why?
In the organization I have chosen which is FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) they have employed Information technology in attending to the needs of their clients. Among technologies they have used are the mobile devices and internet which provide greater and easier access to the agency especially during the times of emergencies and needs (FEMA, 2008). They have even used the biosensors which can help them in locating people during their search and rescue operations. Moreover, the organization had also utilized the leading social network sites for their clients. Through this approach, the reporting of emergency cases is updated and the giving of feedback of the services extended by the organization is enhanced.
