LexisNexis, an industry leader in data content, data aggregation, and information services, faced this information explosion challenge
early on. The company independently developed a massively parallel processing (MPP) solution for data-intensive computing called the Data Analytics Supercomputer (DAS). For more than a decade, LexisNexis has been using the DAS internally to power its multi-billion dollar LexisNexis Accurint® public records business. This is the fusion of over 24,000 structured and unstructured data sources that are cleansed, linked, and disambiguated on the DAS.

Shortly after the 9/11 attacks, various government agencies approached LexisNexis to learn how they could successfully integrate and analyze many disparate data sources, and the result was the creation of Special Services Inc. (LNSSI). Created in 2004, LNSSI has since been offering the DAS and data directly to its government customers for deployment behind their own firewalls as a High Performance Computing Cluster (HPCC) appliance for fusion of their internal and external data in order to solve their most complex and challenging data management problems. The DAS offers the scale, power, and flexibility to take on just about any large-data problem and turn it into actionable intelligence.
