Solving big data analytics with an emerging data-centric language

David Miller (LexisNexis)
Sponsored Session, Ballroom G

Have the demographics of inventors changed over the last 40 years with the Midwest’s industrial center becoming the rust belt while Silicon Valley has grown to dominate the high tech industry? Have the number of inventors declined in Michigan and grown in California? What states have the most then versus now? These simple questions are used to illustrate the simplicity of processing big data using the HPCC Systems open-source platform. The focus of this session will be on the Enterprise Control Language (ECL) and its use for ETL, data analytics, and query processing.

This session is sponsored by LexisNexis/HPCC
