IBM Beefs Up Free Enterprise Search Tool

IBM said Monday that a number of third-party enhancements to the free, downloadable search tool it offers in partnership with Yahoo are now available.

Among other things, users of IBM's OmniFind Yahoo Edition enterprise search software can now obtain improved search results through context tools added to a version of the software available through Axioma Search LLC.

The Axioma Searcher boosts the relevancy and context control of search results yielded by the program, IBM said.

Another OmniFind Yahoo Edition mod, this one produced by visual search tool vendor Groxis, allows users to add the Grokker visual search engine to the software.

Additionally, Fortune Interactive's Featured Match tool is now available as a free add-on to OmniFind Yahoo Featured Match highlights specific results within broader search results by adding additional relevancy parameters, according to IBM.
