A classic example of picking a enterprise BI standard
This seems like a pretty straightforward case of a large enterprise picking an enterprise-standard BI system for rear-view-mirror reports and more up-to-the-minute dashboards. Microstrategy, IBM Cognos, Oracle OBIEE, SAP BusinessObjects, and Information Builders WebFocus are all routine choices for this role. IBM, InformationBuilders and MicroStrategy are also well known for government deployments.
The above are usually chosen by IT for enterprisewide reporting off of data warehouses. When it comes to line-of-business and end users seeking self-service tools, they have been gravitating to the likes of Qlik and Tableau Software, which are known for easier data-exploration and hands-on analysis without setups and assistance from IT.
Of course, both camps have been trying to cover all the bases, so the big players mentioned up top have been adding self-service data-discovery modules (with limited success) while the Qlik and Tableau have been beefing up reporting and centralized IT and admin and control type stuff to please IT (with limited success).
This has been the big-picture trend for at least five years. The players up top are growing ever so slowly while Qlik and Tableau are skyrocketing.
