Search to insight – natural language; supports English today; will support others in future

App finds matches from keywords in underlying data model for matching models/measures

Uses Lucene index for models most used

Creates visualizations to show those insights

Total gross margin would show a numeric point chart

It will display best fit visualizations

Can change chart type – can mention that in query and different chart type

If in a network with no coverage, app will have last 10 queries on app – do not need to worry about connectivity

Can share annotation with other users

It provides auto-recommendation depending on match from other models
