I rarely pass on press releases without some accompanying context, focusing on a few big articles rather than many snippets, but this one headed Huron Consulting replaces Autonomy with Nuix caught my eye as it was published.
Nuix provides software for electronic discovery, investigations and for information governance. Huron Consulting Group provides a range of business consulting services including eDiscovery and related services under the banner Huron Legal. Huron recently acquired the well-known UK-based eDiscovery service provider Trilantic.
Nuix is a pure software company, making its applications available either in-house or through services providers like Huron and many others. To have someone in Huron’s league say of Nuix that “there really was no competition” is a good endorsement to have.
Both Nuix and Huron will be at ILTA 2011. Nuix is offering a “$1,000 giveaway” to those who follow it on Twitter and tweet the phrase found on their competition page. Judging by the number of hits I have found for “Nuix” whilst searching Twitter for a link to the Huron article, Nuix is gaining many followers with this idea.
