IBM has unveiled a new release of the free IBM OmniFind Yahoo! edition enterprise search software with web search services powered by Yahoo! that enables users to further customize and personalize their searches to find, access and capitalize on information stored inside organizations and across the web.
The new version of IBM OmniFind Yahoo! edition offers the ability to easily separate content into different searchable document collections, an improved administration console that simplifies set-up and management of the search tool, and enhanced search support based on the latest open source Lucene indexing library. Other enhancements improve the performance, indexing and custom search field capabilities, as well as support for additional browsers.
IBM introduced IBM OmniFind Yahoo! Edition in 2006 to address the growing need for a no-cost, full-featured search product that eliminated financial and technology barriers to information access.
Joff Redfern, senior director of product management at Yahoo! search distribution, said: We’re committed to helping enterprises – both large and small – get more value out of their information quickly and inexpensively, and providing them with an on-ramp to leveraging the power of all their information.
