Rationale
The City encourages the use of enterprise software across all City functions. This allows for the integration of City services into a common foundation of software applications and middleware, and provides more efficient use of support resources. This policy enables the City to:
  • Facilitate the exchange and sharing of data electronically, by using the same programs (with related file formats) and platforms across applications.
  • Achieve substantial savings in person-time support costs, over a period of time, by reducing the number of products that are supported
  • Reduce training costs by having the same application and system software in use throughout City Government.
  • Promotes the reuse of objects and components in order to respond more expediently to user requirements.
