More when Melanie, who was in on the briefing, posts, but here’s the corporate line:
Earlier this year Yahoo! and IBM got together to ask a simple question — how can we make enterprise search easier to install, use, and maintain. The result of that question is IBM OmniFind Yahoo! Edition which we believe will enable employees, partners or customers to find answers that they know are sitting on their file-systems, their intranet, or their public website. And because an answer to your question may be on the Web, we have integrated Yahoo! Search directly into the search results. So, if you are searching the enterprise, the Web, or looking for a local business you can do that in one unified experience.
