HMRC Data Analysis

HMRC integrates several large datasets from other government agencies to identify tax fraud and evasion. Unusual Systems staff were tasked by Capgemini to add new large datasets and associated software to a week-long data pipeline, managed by bespoke legacy web services.

We scheduled updates between pipeline runs, wrote a new deployment process, designed safe separation of existing systems, configured WebSphere web servers on linux VMs, wrote perl scripts, tailored bespoke web apps, directed deployments and led live system problem-solving. The upgrade was in use three months ahead of plan with little disruption to HMRC's 6,000 analysts, giving them faster and more complete data-sets to identify tax return inconsistencies and so increase revenue.
