Rationale
These standards are set forth to satisfy the requirements of conducing daily business in an efficient manner. Departments must recognize, specify, and justify the need for purchasing new applications. This standard enables the City to:
    1. Facilitate the exchange and sharing of data electronically, by using the same programs (with related file formats) and platforms across the Metropolitan Area.
    2. Achieve substantial savings in person-time support costs, over a period of time, by reducing the number of products that are supported
    3. Reduce training costs by having the same application software in use throughout City Government.
