The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) revised its mission statement in September 1998, to reflect its renewed commitment to America's taxpayers. Our new mission statement reads as follows: "Provide America's taxpayers top quality service by helping them understand and meet their tax responsibilities and by applying the tax law with integrity and fairness to all." Achieving our new business vision and objectives are the highest priority of the IRS. I firmly believe that a large degree of our success will hinge on our ability to align information technology (IT) with this business vision. Alignment is a fundamental strategic concept and identifies the ways in which multiple groups cooperate and collaborate to achieve a common agenda.

We determined that an analytical processing (decision support) architecture was necessary to build the foundation which would enable IRS research and business communities to analyze and respond creatively and proactively to their business environment.
