USPS – Supercomputing and Revenue Protection

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on March 25, 2013 – by Frank Konkel: “The United States Postal Service is at the cutting edge of supercomputing technologies and the big data revolution, operating one of the most powerful non-classified supercomputing databases on the planet to process and detect fraud on over 528 million mail pieces every day. While some agencies struggle to implement big data strategies, USPS has been experimenting with it since 2006 as a means of fraud detection, and its implemented IT architecture has expanded to address what is arguably “one of the world’s most voluminous real-time transactional data problems,” according to USPS program manager Scot Atkins.”
