In my recent interview with him, Eddie Sheehy, CEO of Nuix, stressed the mission of Nuix to help tell stories from data. Nuix, Eddie said, brings two principal elements to investigations, whether for litigation or anything else: fast processing is one; the other is the analytical tools designed to help lawyers identify quickly what data exists and to extract from it the information needed to tell stories and to devise strategy.
I am taking opportunities when they arise to talk not just to software providers but to those who use their applications. One of these was Katie Fitzgerald, Strategic Consultant at Lighthouse eDiscovery, which has recently set up in the UK.
In this interview, recorded at Legaltech in New York, Katie Fitzgerald talks about how Lighthouse uses Nuix to help lawyers to react quickly, whether the context be the preparatory requirements for a case management conference in civil litigation or the reaction to a dawn raid. Nuix Web Review and Analytics is the particular tool which Katie Fitzgerald identifies as being useful in this context.
Nuix is also the enabler of a different but related strand of the Lighthouse consulting practice. That is information governance (something else which I discussed with Eddie Sheehy in my interview with him) helping corporations to understand what they have got in a wider context than reaction to a specific trigger.
