IBM and Yahoo are teaming up to offer a free data-search tool for businesses, a quirky move challenging Google and other corporate-search specialists in a blossoming market.
IBM already sells a business-focused search product, OmniFind, that lets organizations comb through internal documents. This free new edition of OmniFind will be limited in the number of documents it can query, but it will combine the results with Web searches powered by Yahoo.
IBM hopes the service, being announced Wednesday, bolsters its overall efforts to improve its dealings with small companies.

Just a quick additional note... This search tool is very easy to use! I installed it in about 5 minutes. Then ran the index crawler (another 10 minutes). Customized my search results page... (5 minutes). Very cool!
