Nigel Dutt

Having been in software engineering since 1970, Nigel Dutt worked from 1986 to 1999 at Digital Equipment Corporation (later Compaq) in the Enterprise Software Products Group, for most of that time on the engineering side of the ALL-IN-1 office system. Later, as a consulting engineer and the group’s technical director, Nigel had overall responsibility for the technical strategy and architecture of the company’s office and email products and for new products such as Enterprise Vault. After the product’s cancellation by Compaq he was co-founder of KVS and remained its Chief Technology Officer until its acquisition by Veritas. He retired at the end of 2005 after working on the transition of Enterprise Vault into Veritas and then Symantec.
