Indexed Catalog

An indexed access point based on a smart search toolbar that displays results as cards.
Cards shows details about results, and can links to other pages or platforms.

Use case : BI Catalog

Plugged on top of multiple BI platforms (ex: Qlik Sense, IBM Cognos), users can search for a specific Report, Dashboard, Measure, Dimension, Source, Data Warehouse Table, Operational Source over all the BI platforms.
A list of cards is displayed as search results, and users can quickly see what's inside a BI object before opening it in the corresponding platform.
Users can also display the lineage in a dependency graph from the Operational Source, through the DWH tables, until the BI applications and visualizations.
