Abstract: We present a summary of the current status of Starlink and UK data reduction and science product manipulation software for the next generation of IFUs, and discuss the implications of the currently available analysis software with respect to the scientific output of these new instruments. The possibilities of utilising existing software for science product analysis is examined. We also examine the competing science product data formats, and discuss the conventions for representing the data in a multi-extension FITS format.
