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.

    Over 4,000 U.S. workers die on the job every year, and more than 3 million get injured. New wearable technologies are aggressively entering consumer applications (Fitbit, Skully, Apple Watch) but industrial safety equipment has not seen any fundamental innovation in the last decade.

    GuardHat addresses this issue with its "smart hard hat ecosystem", essentially an IoT device in a hard hat form factor. GuardHat is an industrial wearable that uses IoT and wireless communications systems to protect and empower industrial workers. By collecting and analyzing sensor-based data, GuardHat blends existing and emerging technologies to prevent safety incidents and to intervene more effectively when incidents happen.

    The GuardHat ecosystem includes a comprehensive Big Data software platform that gathers large volumes of sensor and M2M data, and analyzes this data stream in real-time using a Complex Event Processing engine to detect and act upon potential safety events. The architecture is modular and scalable to address future application integrations and flexibility in deployment. Reliability and performance are key, and the dynamic nature of the usage scenarios dictates the need for a rapid development toolset, all of which are addressed by HPCC Systems.

    Speaker:Anupam Sengupta, Co-Founder & CTO, GuardHat

    Anupam is a co-founder and the CTO of GuardHat. Previously, Anupam served as the CIO of Severstal North America, a subsidiary of OAO Severstal, a global metals and mining company. At Severstal NA, Anupam managed over $15 million of IT/technology annual projects and operations, and lead the successful divestiture and new integration of the IT assets and systems in September 2014 to AK Steel and Steel Dynamics.

    Anupam joined Severstal from Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), the world's fourth largest IT/Technology consulting firm, where he served as a Senior Consultant in the Banking and Financials practice.

    Anupam has over 18 years of extensive and cross-functional experience in Enterprise Information Technology and Consulting. In his last role with TCS, Anupam served as the client partner at PNC Bank, the sixth largest retail bank in the U.S., where he managed a 900-person team of architects, managers, developers and engineers in an $80 million portfolio of systems and IT infrastructure. Anupam has global technology expertise with substantial work experience across Europe, Asia and North America.

    He has worked in the past with American Express, Ameriprise Financial, Deutsche Bank and Toyota Financial Services in various technology and management leadership roles. He holds an undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering from the National Institute of Technology in India.

    Join HPCC Systems and GuardHat for this compelling use case!

    Big Data NLP with HPCC Systems┬« - A Development Ride from Spray to THOR to ROXIE 

    Free raffle drawing for prizes including a Kindle Fire HD6! 

    HPCC (High Performance Computing Cluster) Systems from LexisNexis is an open source massive parallel-processing computing platform that solves Big Data problems. In this talk, attendees will be given an overview of HPCC Systems and see a demonstration of its use to parse data from free-form and semi-structured text. This represents a combined text extraction task with human intervention. The code elements and massively parallel processing principles involved in accomplishing these tasks will be thoroughly discussed. Attendees will leave with all the data and code used in the class along with the latest links to the HPCC Systems Client Tools installation, HPCC Systems documentation, and HPCC Systems VMware installation.
