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.

    **Virtual ECL Workshop**
    A three-hour workshop, **ECL Alive! - a Deep-Dive into Definitive HPCC Systems (Vol II)**, is for HPCC Systems Summit attendees who want to expand their knowledge of the HPCC Systems platform and ECL in three different phases. The workshop will take students through ECL expert Richard Taylor’s upcoming new book:
    **Definitive HPCC Systems (Vol II): Data Transformation and Delivery** \- This volume teaches the fundamentals of the ECL programming language used by the HPCC Systems Platform\, allowing the reader to quickly get up to speed\. ECL is a very terse and expressive language\, specifically designed for working with huge amounts of data\. Data ingest\, transformation\, manipulation\, and delivery are the key topics along with code examples of specific ECL techniques to accomplish many relatively common tasks\.
