Sadly, I think that, as is often the case when management "standardises"
things they know little about:

Any rational decision based on an analysis of Return on Investment, Cost of
Ownership, Support  (in house/ex house) etc. etc. that management *should*
be doing,  is replaced by glib assurances by salespeople, glossy brochures
and anecdotal "evidence" (For example that the IT-Managers son managed to
build some hackish toy application with the tool, hence the tool beats all
the nerdy & incomprehensible stuff currently in use ;-).

I.O.W. - This may be a lost cause already.
