The research ‘Critical Capabilities for Integrated Tax System COTS Products, 2010’ helps government IT and revenue agency executives understand the strengths and weaknesses of integrated tax systems (ITS) commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) software.
ITS COTS products marketed by global IT suppliers, such as SAP, Oracle, TCS, and Bull, as well as domain-specific vendors, such as Crown Agents, RSI and Fast Enterprises, to support the RFI/RFP selection process. One of the key findings is that national governments, especially in Western countries, have opted for legacy re-engineering programs, but increased pressure to cut costs and lack of internal skills could drive them toward COTS adoption.
