ADRV9364-zc7020 operation without carrier board

Can i use this board without connecting any carrier board, if yes then how can i achieve the same. i read in one of the thread that without carrier board it will not function. But then what is the use of the on board SD card for boot up. I was expecting it with a GUI which will automatically open once i connect the board to my PC through USB/ethernet since it already has a Zynq chip. Programming or configuring this board is not clearly mentioned in entire user guide or i am unable to understand. Can you please explain it so that i can go ahead with the purchase. Since if carrier board is mandatory for any activity with the board then i will have to manage accordingly.
