IBM and Yahoo Partner for Free Enterprise Search

IBM and Yahoo! Inc. have introduced new, no-charge search software that enables departments and businesses of all sizes to quickly and easily find and use information stored within organizations and across the Web.
IBM OmniFind Yahoo! Edition can be downloaded free of charge and is simple to install and use with existing hardware. It can support up to 500,000 documents per server, more than 200 file types and documents in more than 30 languages. The search software uses the open source Lucene indexing library to provide cross-platform full text indexing. It also features automatic spell correction, support for synonyms and shortcuts, wildcard support, query reporting, and graphical user interface customization. In addition, it is integrated with Yahoo! Search, providing one click access to send queries to Yahoo!
"Organizations of all sizes are faced with the problem of too much information residing in different locations and in different formats, making it nearly impossible to quickly extract meaning," said Ambuj Goyal, general manager, IBM Information Management, IBM Software Group.
"Together, IBM and Yahoo! are delivering on the promise of making information easier to find, use and share while providing a better search experience for users," said Eckart Walther, vice president of product management for Yahoo! Search. "This is a valuable tool for helping organizations improve employee productivity by enabling them to more quickly find needed information. By empowering customers and partners to quickly find information on the Web, we're also able to reduce their support costs."
