The current Lucene based search in the Data Catalog is very limiting, especially because you have to match the beginning of a name, description, tag, etc. As a result, if you search for 10 or 10_1, you cannot find assets like Cloudant10_1 and if you search for Bike, Share or BikeShare, you cannot find assets like JCM_BikeShare_shaped.csv.
We need to explore other search technologies that will allow us to provide a better search experience.
Why is it useful?

How should it work?
It should be as close to Google search as possible, but at the very least allow you to search for substrings within a value. E.g. *<value*.
