Eddie, can you tell us something about your background and your current role as CEO of Nuix?
I joined Nuix
as CEO in 2006 after working for quite a few high-growth finance and
technology businesses. What I loved about Nuix was the precise detail
the software could expose about the information it indexed. Having that
degree of detail at scale could make a huge difference to the way an
investigation played out.
After about a year with Nuix, it became clear to me we couldn’t take on
Access Data and Guidance directly –they owned the forensic investigation
market. So we expanded into eDiscovery, and later information
governance, as a way of growing the business. In 2011, having reached a
more tenable scale, we decided to go back into investigations. That has
been one of the most satisfying aspects of my time at Nuix.
What products and solutions does Nuix offer?
Nuix offers products and solutions
for forensic investigation, eDiscovery and information governance.
There’s a fair amount of overlap between those categories, for instance
our Enterprise Collection Center technology for gathering evidence in
the field is used by investigators and for eDiscovery and our processing
engine underpins all three verticals.
Indeed, at the heart of these products is our patent pending
unstructured data indexing engine. The Nuix engine has unique load
balancing, fault tolerance and intelligent processing technologies that
enable it to process huge volumes of unstructured data at high speed and
with forensic certainty...
