IBM is teaming up with Google to find documents on personal computers. The newest plug-in for IBMs enterprise search technology will integrate with Google Desktop for Enterprise, which is downloadable free. Customers using IBM WebSphere Information Integrator OmniFind Edition can now search and retrieve various types of content from their personal computers using the Google Desktop for Enterprise interface. That means users will have a single interface for searching desktop, enterprise and web content. Google has already announced that Google Desktop for Enterprise can search the full text of IBM Lotus Notes mail messages stored on a local computer. This feature allows search of all Lotus Notes databases and mail servers in addition to local mail files. Google Desktop for Enterprise is available from http://desktop.google.com/enterprise
