As part of the deal, Watson recognizes when someone is looking at information about people and companies, and queries the ZoomInfo search engine for relevant results. Content from ZoomInfo is then delivered to the user in Watson's sidebar interface. Another new addition to Watson 2.3 is the Drag and Drop feature, designed to simplify the process of incorporating information that Watson finds into the user's work. Any result that Watson finds, whether a Web page, email or desktop file, can be dragged from Watson's sidebar interface into the program the user is working on, then dropped for information collection.
Watson 2.3 also now supports and integrates with Yahoo Desktop Search, and includes several performance and stability improvements, such as the elimination of the need to reboot after installation. A free copy of Watson or free trial of Watson Professional can be downloaded from the Web site.
