# Recommendation: Tessera. Open source environment for deep analysis of large complex data

I have not had time to preview this software

- but it looks very
interesting
- It takes large problems and converts them to a form for
parallel processing
- not by changing the underlying algorithm
- which
would be very messy
- but by splitting the data into subsets
- analyzing
each subset
- and recombining these results. Such a method “Divide and
Recombine” should work well for some analysis
- but perhaps not so well
for others. It is based on the R programming language. If I get a chance
to work with this software
- I’ll let you know what I think.
