FedEx has selected the Opsware System to help it make the most of its IT resources.
FedEx said it would use the software to exploit its IT resources more efficiently and respond more quickly to customer and market demands.
The Opsware System will automate the operational life cycle of FedEx's servers and applications as well as the process for recovering servers. The software will replace tasks now done manually.
"IT automation is crucial for an agile organisation like ours that has to respond quickly to customer demands and a dynamic business environment," said FedEx chief information officer Robert Carter. "The Opsware System is an IT automation solution that is proven to work in large, distributed environments and can integrate with our existing infrastructure."
