Nuix brings together the disciplines of investigations, eDiscovery, cyber security and information governance, all of which involve extracting and managing useful information from data.
An article called Nuix Insight: a natural progression, traces the development of successive Nuix products to deal with a specific technical problem – how to process a range of file types quickly and accurately and make the resulting data available for searches.
Achieving that technical objective is one thing. Much of Nuix’s more recent work has been directed towards making both the searching and the interpretation more intuitive for users and in allowing them easily to manage tasks and collaborate as teams. A significant element of that is data visualisation.
In parallel with this, there has been an increasing need for clients to move on from reporting on historic data towards the new imperatives of viewing as it evolves, whether to meet cybersecurity threats or to enforce compliance with regulatory or other rules and restrictions.
Ultimately, it comes down to the ability to tell stories using people, objects, locations and events as the foundation for any type of investigation.
