    On Wednesday, IBM and Yahoo! announced the launch of their new entry-level enterprise search software geared mainly toward small- and medium-sized businesses.

    According to IBM, the new software—dubbed the IBM OmniFind Yahoo! Edition—will be free for businesses to download starting today and will offer features such as automatic spelling correction, wildcard support to substitute for unknown characters, query reporting, and graphical user interface customization.
    BM OmniFind Yahoo! Edition is a no-cost, entry level enterprise search product developed to help eliminate financial and technology barriers to intranet and Web search. Unlike other enterprise search solutions that can cost thousands of dollars to purchase and implement, the new offering from IBM with Web search services powered by Yahoo! can be downloaded for free and is simple to install and use with existing hardware.

    "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."

    This announcement supports IBM's company-wide Information on Demand strategy aimed at helping clients of all sizes unblock the barriers to using information as a strategic asset. By enabling organizations to more easily take advantage of enterprise and Web search, IBM and Yahoo! are helping organizations improve access to information, gain new business insight, and create new opportunities for the use of information no matter where it is found.

    "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. "IBM and Yahoo! are bringing clients closer to the reality of being able to use all of their information and analyze it to resolve customer issues, spot trends, recognize business opportunities and become more flexible."

    With support for up to 500,000 documents per server, more than 200 file types and documents in more than 30 languages, IBM OmniFind Yahoo! Edition offers a unique combination of simplicity, openness, and functionality. It features a three-click installation process and takes customers only minutes to go from download to live search and information access. IBM OmniFind Yahoo! Edition also uses the open source Lucene indexing library to provide cross-platform full text indexing.
