Nalanda Technology established in 2013, has developed the next generation precision search and discovery tool which can access and cross reference information across an infinite number of digital sources at the click of a button.

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.

Back in in 2013, the Company’s founders had a vision. They wanted to develop and deliver a core software solution that was innovative, simple to use, fast and effective. Why? To help any individual or business user who struggled with navigating and searching their electronic documents and data. They wanted to help people get to the right information at the right time - Nalanda Technology was born.

The solution will be of particular interest to investigative journalists and one news organisation which has already found it to be invaluable is BuzzFeed UK - a cross-platform, global network for news and entertainment that generates more than 6 billion monthly global content views. Heidi Blake, Investigations Editor at BuzzFeed UK says:

“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!"

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 efficiency improvements. Cutting edge technology delivering powerful search, analytical and explorative capabilities.

Peter O’Hara, Chief Executive, Nalanda Technology, explains:

“Most people are familiar with the Google search engine but its discovery capabilities are quite limited, you are typically presented with too many results to be able to accurately decipher what it is telling you. We are driven by the question, after you Google it then what next? How do you enable a user to gather from multiple results, multiple content sources and dive deeper to get better insights? Our platform covers the whole of your information sources, from the web, from emails and attachments to Dropbox data, and the application does not have to be launched to view and review the data. Put simply we believe 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 resource sets. These can be used to locate and discover information and meaningful content within its context and structure, delivering 100% precision.”

He added:

“We are living in a digital world, in which our life and work is increasingly expressed in narrative that is lost in an ocean of big data. The key question is how to make sense and navigate this ocean of complex data and be confident of finding the right answer. Our solution is designed to deal with anything from a few hundred documents to terrabytes of data and will put the power of search and discovery 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.”

David Rivett, COO and Co-Founder of Nalanda commented:

“We need to urgently address the problems from the 24/7 ‘always on’ economy which is affecting individuals and organisations across the world. Worldwide we are producing upwards of 2.5 exabytes of data every day, Gartner and IDC believe that as much as 80 percent of this is unstructured. Somehow this will need to be managed and controlled. Various studies have shown that for most organisations the ability to find information quickly and efficiently -- ‘findability’ -- is crucial to their overall business goals and success.”
