Several companies now offer their products as complementary technologies to enhance the IBM OmniFind Yahoo Edition enterprise search product.

When we last checked in on the OmniFind product, we heard about how it enhanced UFO searches for’s UFOCrawler.

Since then, IBM and Yahoo have added a few partners to sweeten the appeal of the lengthily-named IBM OmniFind Yahoo Edition. Some prominent tech names have signed on with the project.

Cognos does various business intelligence applications. The company integrated its GO! Search from Cognos 8 with OmniFind Yahoo to enable users to sift through both Cognos and unstructured document repositories.

The SEM crowd who work with Fortune Interactive and OmniFind Yahoo have a new add-on available. Called Feature Match, part of Fortune Interactive’s SEMLogic product, the add-on extends the featured links capability within OmniFind Yahoo.

“Not only will your featured links appear above the search results, but other results found by the OmniFind algorithm will be given more importance when they are found to be thematically similar to the featured links,” Fortune Interactive noted on their site.

The OmniFind Yahoo product may be downloaded at no charge. It is supported on Windows XP/2003, and RedHat and SuSE Linux Enterprise distributions.
