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.

    Come join us for an interesting use case! 

    Learn how data was collected from remote Farm Management Systems (used by the Farmers/Growers to manage their farms), and when merged with weather data and actual machinery data (IoT), this data is used to feed Agronomists and Crop Protection/Seed Manufacturers to get recommendations back. All in an effort to deliver a precision agriculture solution which helps the farmer increase his yield and helps feed the growing population of the world.

    Open discussion to follow. Attendees will have a chance to win a Kindle Fire! Food and beverages will be served.
