Nuix Parallel Processing Unstructured Data Indexing Engine recognised by US Patent Office

According to information management technology provider Nuix, approximately 80% of data kept by organisations is unstructured. Companies are better at producing data than at searching and managing it, and the consequences extend beyond the obligations to identify relevant material for eDiscovery / eDisclosure purposes.

Nuix specialises in this, with parallel processing capabilities designed from the ground up to manage very large volumes of data in complex storage repositories. This has implications beyond eDiscovery and into the proactive management of data as part of an information governance strategy, aimed at uncovering business value as well as for the purely reactive business of giving discovery.

The US patent office has recognised that Nuix has core functions which are unique and is due to issue a patent in respect of those functions.

The press release includes a list of current customer use cases which emphasise the information governance value of the Nuix tools as well as the discovery implications. It also includes a link to a brochure which supports the claims made by Nuix in respect of its technology.
