  Industry Watch: This Week in Enterprise Software News
  Here's a sampling of what's in the news this week.

Software Selections
Oklahoma’s Department of Human Services selects WebFOCUS
"To solve its reporting requirements, Oklahoma DHS has selected Information Builders’ WebFOCUS business intelligence platform. With massive reporting requirements, the state government institution will rely on (among other things) a reporting application for child support services and a compliance reporting system for its child welfare department. The reporting solution will be used by an estimated 6,000 users or more, and it's a clear case of BI being put to good use." — Jorge García, TEC BI Analyst
Peugeot Netherlands selects QlikView's Business Discovery Platform
"By using QlikView's proof-of-concept method (i.e., "seeing is believing,"), QlikView partner OnLine Zuid was able to enable Peugeot Netherlands to view, experiment with, and ultimately select QlikView Business Discovery Platform for data analysis related to Peugeot's vehicles and parts. QlikView continues to increase its global presence within large corporations." — Jorge García, TEC BI Analyst
