Hazelcast for Modernizing Government IT
Hazelcast is in use in government intelligence and military applications as well as civilian government both at the federal and state level.
Open Source in government is a must in this atmosphere of continuing fiscal restraint. And yet there is demand to replace legacy mainframe and legacy database systems.
For intelligence and military applications Hazelcast technology provides affordable price performance on open source for applications like real-time analytics, real-time threat analysis and supports a fully event-driven model for operations in-theater or from a base. Hazelcast is also proven for logistics applications, managing distributed data while providing distributed computation, analytics and distributed data in-memory for fastest possible performance. Hazelcast can also accelerate Big Data analytics for intelligence analysts, and is already in deployment for Hadoop acceleration in the commercial sector.
In the civilian government, Hazelcast provides an elastically scalable way to provide shared data services. Distributed data and processing enables microsecond data access while the Hazelcast grid distributes data in a high-availability pattern that has no single point of failure. For Enterprise Shared Data Services, Hazelcast provides a layer that can apply privacy and security policies without impacting transactional performance simply by elastically scaling commodity server nodes. This provides the kind of scale needed to handle “burst” traffic such as tax deadlines or voting.

The Revenue Commissioners, (Irish: Na Coimisinéirí Ioncaim), usually referred to as simply Revenue is the Irish Government agency responsible for customs, excise, taxation and related matters. Though Revenue can trace itself back to predecessors (with the Act of Union 1800 amalgamating its forerunners with HM Customs and Excise in the United Kingdom), the current organisation was created for the independent Irish Free State in 21 February 1923 by the Revenue Commissioners Order, 1923 which established the Revenue Commissioners to carry out the functions that the Commissioners of Inland Revenue and the Commissioners of Customs and Excise had carried out in the Free State prior to independence. The Revenue Commissioners are responsible to the Minister for Finance, and represent 6,000 employees in total.
