HPCC Systems 7.0.0 Beta is now available for download. It includes all the major new features we expect to be included in the final gold version, targeted for release later in the year. There are some great new features and performance enhancements you might like to test drive and we're looking for your feedback as we make the final tweaks.
One new feature to look out for in HPCC Systems 7.0.0, is log visualization integration with ECL Watch using ELK (ElasticSearch, Logstash and Kibana). Log visualizations help identify, track and predict important events and trends on HPCC Systems clusters, by spotting interesting patterns and giving you visual clues which are easier to interpret than reading through the log file itself.
One of the major challenges facing financial institutions is customer attrition, or churn. Studies suggest it costs five to seven times more to attract new customers than it does to retain current customers. Studies have also shown that companies are more likely to retain customers who engage frequently with a product or service.
