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.

    Big Data, Business Intelligence and B2B Analytics
    We all know that we’re supposed to be utilizing all of these capabilities to better manage our business. Now what do we do next? In this presentation, I will share our learnings from our own establishment of a central Business Intelligence practice at LexisNexis Risk Solutions. I’ll discuss our use of Big Data and Predictive Analytics leveraging the open source HPCC Systems platform for this purpose. And I’ll describe how we’ve deployed and integrated these technologies and techniques into our business processes.
