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.

    Join us as we continue our webinar series specifically designed for the community by the community with the goal to share knowledge, spark innovation, and further build and link the relationships within our HPCC Systems community. Featured topics and speakers include:

    Integrating Prior Knowledge with Learning in Biomedical Natural Language Processing - Jingqing Zhang, PhD Candidate, Department of Computing, Imperial College London
    It has been seen a rapid progress of natural language processing (NLP) research last year including significant performance improvement in a variety of NLP tasks. However, the research of NLP techniques in biomedical domain relatively falls behind. The advantage of the biomedical domain is that it has high-quality human curated knowledge base and large-scale literature, both of which contain rich prior knowledge. In this talk, I will share our recent research on biomedical NLP especially the integration of prior knowledge with deep learning models.

    Universal Workunit Scheduler - Allan Wrobel, Consulting Software Engineer, LexisNexis Risk Solutions
    There are many scenarios when multiple dependent jobs (or workunits in HPCC Systems Thor parlance) need to run in a particular sequence to complete a task. This talk introduces a mechanism for accomplishing this, which has been recently shared in the ‘Tips & Tricks’ section of the community HPCC Systems Forum.

    HPCC Systems / ECL Training Update - Bob Foreman, Senior Software Engineer, LexisNexis Risk Solutions
    We are excited to announce some great new content that’s available now for our HPCC Systems/ECL training courses. Senior instructor, Bob Foreman, will outline the new lessons in more detail, and tell you how you can get access to them now. We have new lessons for Data Patterns, Visualization and multiple lessons for Machine Learning with more on the way! Bob will also reiterate the option of Remote Training for your small groups for any course or topic that you might have a need. Remote Training is a great option while many of us are working at home. We can schedule sessions to fit your time zone and location.
