Infoworld Test Center review

As a compulsive researcher, I’m compelled to stop and browse stories about search tools.

I found this story on Yahoo! news, Yahoo and IBM team up to offer businesses free data search tool.

Intrigued by the prospects, I looked for a link to OmniFind in this article and in several others as well.

It took some digging and searching to find a link.

Thanks to this Infoworld Test Center review, I found the site as well as read about how the search tool works – they love it, by the way.

According to the OmniFind site, “IBM OmniFind Yahoo! Edition is a no-charge, entry-level enterprise search software solution that enables rapid deployment of intranet and file system search for both employees and customers.”

In the late 90s, I unexpectedly landed the role as the orchestrating manager for the launch of Sears first intranet site. Coordinating a cross-departmental team into an unpopulated foreign territory was a challenging adventure. Knowing that we’d have a tool like this to search and navigate our new empire would’ve given us added confidence and incentive to build out faster and better.
