Missing Business Glossary Anywhere (BGA) Desktop App on Cloud Pak for Data (CP4D)

Business Glossary Anywhere App is currently not available on Cloud Pak for Data. Business Glossary Anywhere is a light weight Desktop Application that gives lot of ease for the users to navigate and use the Glossary information which is available on the latest version of Information Server Enterprise Edition - 11.7.1 but is not available on Cloud Pak for Data.

Competitive Products like Collibra do have Desktop Application and in addition also offer iOS and Android Apps for Business Glossary.

  • Future consideration
Who would benefit from this IDEA? Missing BGA in CP4D would not allow customers to move from Information Server to WKC based Cloud Pak for Data.
How should it work?

Business Glossary Anywhere or a replacement desktop application (based on WKC) has to be created for Cloud Pak for Data.

Idea Priority Urgent
Priority Justification This is the major blocker to move from Information Server to CP4D.

    Thanks for your idea. Currently Cloud Pak for Data / Watson Knowledge Catalog does not include nor support Glossary Anywhere.

    We understand how such a tool is being used today, and the value it could deliver to the user - easily invoking a search of a Glossary to gain insight or understanding into the business concept.

    This is being explored for a future integration, and how to best evolve the general principal value derived from BGA into current application framework and platform architecture.
