Creating a new buzz for journalists
Nalanda Technology is offering all investigative journalists a free trial of its newly launched next generation precision search and discovery tool.
One organisation which is already benefiting from this is Buzzfeed - a cross-platform, global network for news and entertainment that generates more than 6 billion monthly global content views.
Heidi Blake, Investigations Editor, BuzzFeed UK, comments: “Nalanda is brilliant for searching, analysing and organising large troves of documents really simply and quickly. We’ve used it to mine a few bulky document dumps and found it easier to navigate than other forensic search software we’ve tried in the past, as well as being far more cost-effective. We were also able to get up and running and start doing real work very quickly with only minimal training. Highly recommended!”
Journalists and news organisations have never been under so much pressure to find information quickly as the public’s appetite for content across all channels explodes. Nalanda’s solution enable users to carry out a detailed search of their data regardless of where it is stored. Moreover, the technology ‘Nalytics’, assists in the analysis of data by enabling users to make sophisticated searches which puts the information in context and can highlight relationships between seemingly disparate bits of material.
Designed to be easy and intuitive to use, the Nalytics platform is presented as Software as a Service, so can be accessed by any device or browser and does not require any software download. Users can be searching for data within minutes of deployment. Nalytics places the power into the end user’s hands, and when deployed means all key information is quickly findable and organised – the level of search precision is second to none.
Nalytics helps individuals, teams and entire organisations access and analyse their data to enhance insight, drive innovation and deliver improvements. Cutting edge technology delivering powerful search, analytical and explorative capabilities.
Peter O’Hara, chief executive, Nalanda Technology, explains: “Nalytics picks up where Google finishes. Most people are familiar with the Google search engine but its search capabilities are really quite basic and typically present too many results for users to be able to decipher. Our platform covers the whole of your information store from emails and attachments to Dropbox data, and the application does not have to be launched to view and review the data. There is no such thing as unstructured data. All data has an inherent structure; using our technology anything held in a digital format can be simply processed to create data sets. These can be used to locate and discover information and meaningful content within its context and structure.”
He added: “We are living in a world of big data. The key question is how to make sense of complex data and be confident of finding the right answer. Our solution can deal with anything from a few hundred documents to terabytes of data and puts the power of search back in the hands of the user. Our mission is to make the complex simple and empower users to find the right information at the right time.”
