  1. Additional Embedded Languages in ECL
    Clojure, Haskell, MariaDB, MatLab, MongoDB, ODBC, Postgres, SAS, Scala, SQL, or suggest one!
  2. Additional external data stores
    Ceph, S3 or suggest one!
  3. Cluster Deployment with Juju Charm
    Convert our current implementation to use the new Charm Helpers framework (python) and add support for new HPCC components 
  4. Create HPCC Systems VM on HyperV
    More coming soon
  5. DFU Spray from zip/gzip files
    Create a plugin for spraying from a ZIP/GZIP archive without decompressing the content
  6. Implement an IOT pluggable protocol for ROXIE
    Add support for pluggable protocols currently being used in IOT projects
  7. Machine Learning Algorithms on the HPCC Platform
    Anomaly DetectionData Series ClassificationDetecting fraud within stored-valued cardsImplement an approximate n-tile algorithmText Search Bundle TBC, Word Vectorization
  8. Port Roxie to a different UDP layer
    Investigate how well the current implementation achieves the goal of getting data from slaves to serves as quickly and reliably as possible on today's systems, and investigate whether there is a third party library or alternative protocol that may be worth consideration.
  9. System self health check
    Design and implement a tool to provide an overall check to everything is working as expected across components, from a button within ECL Watch
  10. Provide SELinux Policies for the HPCC-Platform installation on Linux environments
    Build SELinux domains for hpccsystems-platform services.
  11. Locking engine to replace DALI - Investigative project
    Research, test and do a POC of a 3rd party inter-machine/process locking engine, for example ZooKeeper, HashiCorp's Consul or other suitable contenders.
  12. Replace existing socket-based message passing interface with an open source package
    Explore if using a different message layer (open-source package, such as ZeroMQ) offers improved performance, robustness and code maintainability
