What Does OmniFind 9 Cost?

June 20, 2011

Good question. We fielded this one a week or so ago. The answer was surprisingly difficult to find. We did get the info, and we wanted to pass along an item form 2010 which we wanted to document.

Cnet Japan reported “IBM Japan, Ltd., Announcing Search Software Which Mounts Both Functions ‘Reproducibility’ and ‘Comprehensiveness.’” In an article which describes the advances in this version of OmniFind, what caught our attention was the section on price. As translated via Google Translator:

“IBM OmniFind V9.1 fee is large for ‘IBM OmniFind Enterprise Edition V9.1’ is 716 million yen (excluding tax, 100PVU per case) per division that can start small ‘IBM OmniFind Enterprise Starter Edition V9.1’ is 40,000,491 yen (excluding tax, 100PVU per case, up to 200PVU).”

40 million yen was almost $500,000. We liked the entire post.

    I am an IBMer in the OmniFind space in Germany. I checked the listprice for “IBM OmniFind Enterprise Starter Edition” just 2 minutes ago for you in Japan and Yen: It’s 63,500 yen per PVU, equals 6,350,000 yen per 100 PVU on listprice.
