The rationale for this brand name requirement is that Sybase software is already owned and used by the IRS Research, Analysis, and Statistics (RAS) organization. Sybase software is used by Compliance Data Warehouse (CDW) staff to maintain its database operations. Client tools that are part of the license allow research analysts in the IRS to perform a variety of data management and manipulation tasks, data retrieval, summarization, aggregation, and statistical analysis. The suite of Sybase software tools support the IRS Strategic Plan by giving researchers the capability to address questions about the U.S. tax gap, case selection, treatment classification, taxpayer burden, flow-through entities, and other areas of tax administration.
