The annual Nuix User Exchange takes place at Huntington Beach in California from 15 to 17 September. In a blog post called 2019 Nuix User Exchange – Focus on Community and Growing Together, Andrew Nester of Nuix writes about the reasons for attending this event and about the communal emphasis in the programme for this year.
The conference is called an “Exchange” for a reason – the word connotes learning from each other rather than merely being told things, which is the formula which has made ILTACON so successful over the years. The trick is to strike a balance between having a full programme and leaving enough time for people (whether actual users or potential users) to talk among themselves, to share experiences and to trade ideas.
The big excitement of last year’s event was the announcement of Nuix’s acquisition of Ringtail, which happened days before the event opened. Ringtail is now an established part of Nuix and, as Andrew Nester observes, this is the first User Exchange at which Ringtail customers will be present. This will inevitably – and rightly – heighten the focus on eDiscovery.
It’s not all work at the Nuix User Exchange. The first of my pictures from last year shows one of the evening events. The second is of sunset over Huntington Beach. A pleasant enough place to learn and exchange ideas.
