Mary very nice perspective when considering Big Data. With the explosion of big data, companies are faced with data challenges in three different areas. First, you know the type of results you want from your data but it’s computationally difficult to obtain. Second, you know the questions to ask but struggle with the answers and need to do data mining to help find those answers. And third is in the area of data exploration where you need to reveal the unknowns and look through the data for patterns and hidden relationships. The open source HPCC Systems big data processing platform can help companies with these challenges by deriving insights from massive data sets quick and simple. Designed by data scientists, it is a complete integrated solution from data ingestion and data processing to data delivery. Their built-in Machine Learning Library and Matrix processing algorithms can assist with business intelligence and predictive analytics.

Good insight Maria. It is worth mentioning the HPCC Systems open source offering which provides a single platform that is easy to install, manage and code too. Their built-in analytics libraries for Machine Learning and integration tools with Pentaho for great BI capabilities make it easy for users who do not hold a PhD degree or carry a title like "Data Scientist" to easily analyze Big Data. I believe HPCC is better than Hadoop and commercial offerings, it has a real-time data analytics and delivery engine (Roxie) and runs on the Amazon cloud like a charm through the Instant Cloud portal.

Hi Mike, at LexisNexis Risk Solutions we are actively engaged in using the open source HPCC Systems data intensive compute platform along with the massive LexisNexis Public Data Social Graph to tackle everything from fraud waste and abuse, drug seeking behavior, provider collusion to disease management and community healthcare interventions. We have invested in analytics that help map the social context of events through trusted relationships to create better understanding of the big picture that surrounds each healthcare event, patient, provider, business, assets and more. For an interesting case study visit: http://hpccsystems.com/Why-HPCC/case-studies/health-care-fraud

Hamish, One superior alternative to Hadoop worth mentioning that is perfect for helping companies gain insight into their big data is HPCC Systems – a mature platform with its main differentiator being the powerful ECL language programming model. ECL is the native language behind the Thor and Roxie components which provide for data transformation “chewing” and linking with real-time delivery of data queries. Their built-in analytics libraries for Machine Learning and integration tools with Pentaho for great BI capabilities make it easy for companies to analyze their big data and take action on real-time insights. An advantage over Hadoop is it requires less nodes and fewer programmers.
