Visualizations are not just charts that are aesthtically pleasing to the eye, they often make it easier to recognise patterns and identify outliers in data which may not be easy to spot otherwise. Visualizing Big Data may provide answers to questions that we either didn't know to ask at all or help identify emerging trends faster because sometimes it's just easier to see them this way.

Earlier this month, DJ Patil, U.S. Chief Data Scientist with the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, held a Q and A session on ProductHunt.com. We collected our favorite questions into a blog post, which you can read here. We thought it would be interesting to take key questions from the session and answer them. First, Becky Champion, Senior Consulting Software Engineer, LexisNexis responded to the questions. In a follow-up post, Jesse Shaw, Senior Consulting Software Engineer also at LexisNexis, provided his insight.

In this, our final post of the series, David Wheelock, Consulting Software Engineer, also with LexisNexis, provides his answers.

There's so much to say about the HPCC Systems 6.0.x release that one blog simply isn't enough.

If you haven't read the first one, you can find it here. We have also written a blog specifically about the performance improvements which provide the ability to use various multicore technologies currently available.

You can expect the HPCC Systems 6.0.x series to perform even better and faster as a result of a number of performance improvements. You should also find it easier to use and there are many new features to help you get the most from HPCC Systems.
