HPCC is the big data analysis tool from LexisNexis. They have proprietary add-ons as well. They've got a meetup and have spoken at local users' groups. I don't see any upcoming meetups, but keep an eye on them.

This was the note from Trish, their program manager:

Hello, I am the Program Manager for the HPCC Systems open source project at LexisNexis. HPCC Systems (www.hpccsystems.com) from LexisNexis Risk Solutions offers a proven, data-intensive supercomputing platform designed for the enterprise to process and solve Big Data analytical problems. As an alternative to legacy technology, HPCC Systems offers a consistent data-centric programming language, two processing platforms and a single, complete end-to-end architecture for efficient processing. And it is open source!  ... I'm happy to provide whitepapers, articles or any other information needed.

    Featured speakers and topics include:

    Adwait Joshi, CEO, DataSeers - HPCC Systems - an IoT use case for Payments
    Traditionally we all have used Thor for data processing and ROXIE indexes for data pulls. Think about using ROXIE for a data ingest and Thor directly pulling data into the back end repository. This talk will explain about how DataSeers has designed a realtime transaction monitoring system using HPCC Systems, Kafka, ElasticSearch and MySQL pushing the envelope for a typical use case. Learn the roadblocks we encountered, how we worked around them, and how we hardened the system to be truly disaster resistant with all open source technologies.

    For more than a decade now, Adwait has been working with various verticals solving their Data problems. He has tremendous expertise in big data and analytics. His latest venture DataSeers, is a startup focused on RegTech and helping FinTech companies with Reconciliation, Compliance, Fraud and Analytics. The product has been so majorly successful that within the first year the company is already profitable and winning awards. LexisNexis recently awarded DataSeers an Award for creating a truly unique solution in the market space that uses HPCC Systems.

    Yanrui will talk about some of the major changes with Dynamic ESDL in HPCC Systems 7.0.0, focusing on the mechanisms and enhancements that have made it even more dynamic. He’ll give a demo of creating a DESDL service with the improved “esdl” command line to show you how easy and quick it can be. He’ll also go over DESDL related EclWatch changes in HPCC Systems 7.0.0, and some of the upcoming DESDL features.

  • Big Data Processing & Analytics - HPCC Systems (LexisNexis)

    Florida Atlantic University Students and Faculty: Join us for a meetup!

    Attendance is limited to FAU Students and Faculty only.

    HPCC Systems is fast approaching its 20-year anniversary as a Big Data platform, and its 8-year anniversary as an open source solution. What is the reason for its longevity and success? In this presentation, Bob will present an overview of HPCC Systems, the ECL (Enterprise Control Language) that drives it, then demonstrate best practices used every day with ECL to process data, and will conclude by looking at case studies and how you can get started using the platform quickly and easily.

    Before the presentation, we will hear from Professor Taghi Khoshgoftaar and Robert Kennedy, a 2018 HPCC Systems Summer intern and 3rd place HPCC Systems Poster Competition winner. Trish will wrap-up by sharing information on the many HPCC Systems student opportunities available.
