Pros: Data mondeling functionalities inside & all visualisations are code based

Cons: Expensive for a start up company

Overall: Looker gives me the possibility to build and maintain a datawarehouse, create reports and offers pivoting functionalities. with very limited resources, i was able to create these functionalities, serving 20 collegues with daily reports & enabling them to gather insights on their own. Our company (ticketswap) is growing rapidly, and so does change our database. Looker enables me to set definitions in one place and create multiple of different data models, which is perfect for a market place where users can be both buyers and sellers. The customer care is fabulous, answering fast and efficiƫnt

Comments: We were looking for a simple to use, yet transparent analytics solution to use with our data warehouse. Looker fit the bill very well, but what really convinced us was the excellent service we received during the on ramp as well as the support we continue to receive today.

Great tool!

Pros: Customer Service, Ease of Use

Cons: Features

Overall: After using looker for a coupe years now, I can definitely say its an awesome tool. It is super easy to learn and use but the best part about this tool is the customer service; support and the account managers go above and beyond to solve problems and actually listen to you when doing product planning. Keep it up!

BI Built for Data Analysts and Non-Technical Users Alike

Comments: Looker has been a game changer for our company, in terms of surfacing data insights and business intelligence throughout all of our functions (Product, Engineering, Ops, Teachers, etc). What really sets it apart from its competitors, however, is the duality of a powerful data modeling layer built for data analysts, and a simpler UI that is very easy for everyone else in our company to use without SQL knowledge. I find that too many products either attempt to do away with front-end SQL entirely (thus limiting the deeper functionality of Looker), or rely on SQL so heavily that most users in the company can't self service without the help of a data analyst. Looker manages to do both, in expert fashion!

Comments: Having worked with several traditional on-prem BI solutions in the past, I appreciate the ease of getting Looker running within our current environment. The customer support team is readily accessible when we have questions. New feature requests are quickly prioritized and we have seen a multitude of feature added that we've discovered as potential use cases within our company. The team is responsive and willing to discuss whatever we need to be successful in our BI environment, whether that is best practices around data architecture, specific implementation guidance within Looker, discussions of other technical products, or any other questions that might arise.

Pros: Ease of use, monetary value and ability to prototype and show data quickly. Their CS team (our account exec and technical support rep are amazing) and support are the best vendors I've ever worked with.

Cons: Performance issues, it's a new product so some standard features it's missing - around mapping separate projects together, some access/security features, and lack of self-service model layer.

Overall: Looker allows you to get up and running quickly with it's prototyping capability and LookML functionality. It makes it easy for our enterprise data team to get data in front of the customer quickly while then going behind the scenes and adding it to our data warehouse. It's ease of use and value for the money allows it to meet our needs as our corporate BI/analytics tool!

Recommendations to other buyers: Because it's new and already has so much, it will quickly add the small subset of features/functionality that it's missing. Their CS team and support is the best I've ever worked with!

Comments: This software is great for non-technical users who need real-time access to data that would otherwise require them to write SQL queries to pull. Their point and click interface doesn't require any coding to get the data necessary.

Comments: I've seen Looker evolve over the years and it's grown to be a flushed out visualization tool with a solid data governance backend. Initial setup with their proprietary markup language is quick and straightforward. Analysts are then empowered with central definitions and a tool that enforces standardized business logic.

Great Product and very reliable
