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 March 15 for another episode of The Download: HPCC Systems Community Tech Talks!
This series of workshops is 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 speakers and topics include:
1) Itauma Itauma, PhD Candidate, Keiser University - Conducting Exploratory Data Analysis in Educational Research Using HPCC Systems®
Itauma's research illustrates the use of HPCC Systems for quantitative data analysis in educational research. Utilizing HPCC Systems, an exploration of the dataset of the High School Longitudinal Study of 2009 (HSLS:09) is performed. HSLS:09 is a national study of over 23,000 ninth graders from 944 schools in 2009 through their secondary and post-secondary years. Analysis will include an examination of the association between Math identity and Math self-efficacy in high school.
2) Ignacio Calvo, Software Engineering Lead, LexisNexis Risk Solutions – Big Data and Geospatial with HPCC Systems®
This presentation covers one topic that LexisNexis Risk Solutions has mastered after several years: Geospatial. Ignacio will reveal how we deal with very specific spatial challenges in our day-to-day use cases:
- Introduction to Geospatial
- Answer questions combining the best of BigData and geospatial analysis.
- Ingestion and use of raster and vector data with our Massive Parallel Processing platform (Thor).
- Store and query spatial information with sub-second queries, using our data refinery (Roxie)
- And much more.
3) Bob Foreman, Senior Software Engineer, HPCC Systems, LexisNexis Risk Solutions - The Top Ten Common ECL Compiler/Runtime Errors and How to Correct Them
In all of the ECL training classes over the many years, there are consistent ECL compiler/runtime errors that surface in every class. The HPCC Systems training and documentation team have assembled a list of these most common errors, why they occur, and how you can fix them.
