March 10, 2008 - IBM introduced a new version of its OmniFind enterprise search software, designed to help users find, manipulate and share information across their business or organization.


IBM OmniFind Enterprise Edition 8.5 search software features enhancements that help customers gain insight and value from their business information, which is the aim of IBM’s cross-company Information on Demand strategy.


The new version also includes an interface that refines and graphically displays relevant search results; full global language support for Japanese, Chinese and Korean; and support for the latest versions of Red Hat Linux, Windows Server, IBM FileNet Enterprise Content Management software and the IBM Lotus Collaboration Suite.


IBM OmniFind Enterprise Edition extends IBM’s ability to provide customers a search experience throughout their enterprise, enabling users to uncover and tap into information stored in multiple programs, repositories and file formats. It also helps organizations correlate massive amounts of information on the Internet with that of the enterprise, including text, audio, video and dynamic information, to create a real-time view of business scenarios.


In addition to delivering extensive enterprise search and information access capabilities, OmniFind Enterprise Edition also serves as a platform for semantic search and content analytics solutions such as entity analytics, sentiment analysis, threat analysis and global name recognition, which are designed to help customers address industry-specific information management challenges. These solutions, combined with OmniFind Enterprise Edition, help organizations uncover new insights, patterns and trends in text-based information that can be used to manage risk, reduce costs and maximize customer service opportunities.


Among the new features of OmniFind Enterprise Edition 8.5 is OmniFind Top Results Analysis, which provides a graphical means of analyzing top search results based on metadata.In addition to generating a standard list of search results, results can be displayed graphically, allowing users to drill down further and interactively refine their search to find what they need faster. For example, a query for “enterprise search” will return a list of results as well as a navigation pane with dynamic bar charts where results are organized by category, for example, Web search, Desktop search, eDiscovery, author, language or source. Drop-down menus are provided for dynamically selecting other fields for analysis.
