HPCC Systems invites you to join us for a meetup in Boca Raton, FL

Learn about the HPCC Platform and SALT

HPCC (High Performance Computing Cluster) is a massive parallel-processing computing platform that solves Big Data problems. The platform is now Open Source!

Dr Tony Middleton will give a presentation on SALT, (Scalable Automated Linking Technology), which is available with the open source HPCC Enterprise Edition and how it can simplify the data integration process and save a significant amount of development time by automatically generating ECL code for processes such as data profiling, data cleansing and record linkage. A brief overview of the HPCC platform and ECL is included.

Open discussion to follow. Food & beverages provided.
