With new technologies, such as mobile communications, internet of things, and wide applications of social media, organizations generate a huge volume of data, much faster than several years ago. Big data, characterized by high volume, diversity and velocity, increasingly drives decision making and is changing the landscape of business intelligence, from governments to private organizations, from communities to individuals. Big data analytics that discover insights from evidences has a high demand for computing efficiency, knowledge discovery, problem solving, and event prediction. We dedicate a special section of Issue 4/2017 to Big Data. Prospective authors are asked to make the submissions for this section no later than the 31st of May 2017, placing "BigData - " before the paper title in OpenConf.

Modern Utility Management Systems which utilize multiprocessor systems for efficient processing of large data model are considered in this paper. The necessary preconditions for the efficient calculation are optimal load balancing of processors and data model partitioning among processors. The novel multilevel Super-Roots (SR) algorithm was developed to improve existing algorithms (e. i. METIS) for initial partitioning of data model. The proposed algorithms are applied on data model describing large electricity power distribution network. Experiments show that SR algorithm achieves better results than METIS multilevel algorithm in many cases.
