China's Baidu, IBM team up for Lotes Notes search

IBM plans to add Baidu's hard-disk search technology to Lotus Notes.

IBM plans to add Baidu.com's hard-disk search technology in Lotus Notes as part of a technology partnership, the two companies announced Wednesday.

Baidu's hard-disk search technology can be used to search for information in Chinese and English. Adding the technology to Lotus Notes will give users better search capabilities for Chinese-language information, the two companies said. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

IBM is the latest company to strike a partnership with Baidu. Last month, the search provider announced a deal with Intel to jointly develop search technology for laptops, mobile phones and home PCs. Further details of that partnership are expected to be announced at a later date.

Baidu, which is China's most popular Internet search engine, also has a partnership with Nokia for mobile search in China.

IDG News Service's parent company, International Data Group, is an investor in Baidu through its venture-capital arm, IDG Ventures.
