Overview of CSC
CSC’s publicly announced activities in 2011 include: a US immigration database of 100 million people; overseas visa registrations for Canada; cloud administration of 50 million educational qualifications, and of workers’ compensation claims; complaints and queries to the Department of Labor; and health benefit data processing.
Its work in geophysics, ongoing since the 1960s, was also prominent in 2011 in: atmospheric, oceanic and weather monitoring and modelling; monitoring and administration also of hazardous waste sites; and water security.
Beyond intelligence, CSC has long been a leader in control systems, where it was still at the fore in 2011 with numerous announcements, from the redesign of US civil and Army air traffic control to battlefield command and control.
Its military successes in 2011 were meanwhile as diverse as engineering on the Navy’s DDG 1000 Zumwalt Class Destroyer, to software engineering on ballistic missile defence and submarine base security.
Notwithstanding CSC’s implication in illegal rendition, its ongoing work in more controversial areas includes the development of anthrax and plague vaccines for biological warfare.
This special nine-page report from Computer Weekly analyses the challenges facing CSC, its financial performance, the services it offers, its place in the IT market and its future strategy. Packed with graphs and diagrams, the report is essential reading for any organisation already working with, or thinking of working with, CSC.
