A Decade of Big Data Insights: LexisNexis Risk Solutions Celebrates 10-Year Open Source Anniversary of its HPCC Systems Platform

06/15/2021 | 03:23pm EDT

ATLANTA, June 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- LexisNexis® Risk Solutions today announced the 10-year open source anniversary of HPCC Systems®, its platform for big data insights. The enterprise-proven platform is capable of processing in 24/7 environments and powers the products and solutions of LexisNexis Risk Solutions.

"Ten years is a long time, but it's dwarfed by the achievements of our HPCC Systems open source community."

Built in 2000 as a proprietary system for a handful of organizations, the HPCC Systems platform was a strategic differentiator at a time where big data was not even described as such. In 2011 LexisNexis Risk Solutions generously released the platform as an open source project. The platform uses ECL, a unique, high-level data-oriented declarative programming language that enables data scientists to focus on what needs to be done, rather than superfluous details around the specific implementation. These characteristics make the HPCC Systems platform a proven leader in efficiency.

"Back in 2000, we were pushing the envelope on what could be done with the commercially available solutions at the time," said Flavio Villanustre, vice president, Technology and CISO, LexisNexis Risk Solutions. "The complexity of our processing requirements made existing solutions non-viable, so we invented, from the ground up, a data-intensive supercomputer which ultimately became the HPCC Systems platform."

Today, the open source HPCC Systems platform has adopted a number of standards and developed capabilities in a broad range of areas, including machine learning and analytics and an improved security model. The most recent 8.0 version release has made the platform fully capable of running on virtualized and containerized environments as its users drive their respective moves towards the public cloud.

"Ten years is a long time, but it's dwarfed by the achievements of our HPCC Systems open source community," said Villanustre. "It has been a wild ride but a worthwhile one and I personally look forward to our next milestone."
