HM Customs and Excise National Intelligence Division is to step up its interrogation tactics, with the delivery of data-enquiry software from CorVu, writes Caroline Davis.

The division will use the Corbusiness suite as its primary tool in its Analytical Centres Project, which provides support in combating fraud, smuggling and non-compliance.

The software will extract and prepare data for analysis from internal and external data sources such as Reuters, the Internet and international law enforcement agencies.

Corbusiness was chosen because it provides access to all the main databases and middleware.

"The tools need to be robust and easy to use for analysts to concentrate on evaluating and interpreting the output rather than on working the software," explains John Skinner, project leader for the National Intelligence Division.

Customs and Excise analysts will use the tool to examine data, look for inconsistencies in VAT returns that may suggest avoidance, and analyse the impact of a policy on a sector in the community.
