Product Description

Looker supports a discovery-driven culture throughout the organization; its web-based data discovery platform provides the power and finesse required by data analysts while empowering business users throughout the organization to find their own answers.

How do you position yourself against your competitors?

Looker reinvents the way business intelligence (BI) works by delivering an entirely new kind of data discovery solution that modernizes BI in three important ways. A simplified web-based stack leverages our 100% in-database architecture, so customers can operate on big data and find the last mile of value in the new era of fast analytic databases. An agile development environment enables today’s data rockstars to model the data and create end-user experiences that make sense for each specific business, transforming data on the way out, rather than on the way in. At the same time, a self-service data-discovery experience works the way the web works, empowering business users to drill into and explore very large datasets without ever leaving the browser. As a result, Looker customers enjoy the power of traditional BI at the speed of the web.

What do you like best?

user friendly and easy to understand info that is presented to you. I really like the display as well as the way that you can search for related data-sets. That paired with fairly solid real time reporting makes it one of my favorite apps to use all time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

lags occasionally but is overall a very good tool. When inundated with data sets that are too large it does take quite a while to process all of it. Despite closing several other screens it just requires a higher level of processing power or server power on you alls end or something. not absolutely sure but you definitely have an are of opportunity there. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Be sure to drill into any data that might be in front of you. Looker allows you to click on info to see further details so that you can really grasp and utilize the value of the data in front of you. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

helps me leverage my business data to help further create in site efficiency. I have utilized it to drive metrics and ultimately run a better business than several peers of mine, considering the volatility of my site. While it does solve the issues with capturing data , i wish there were a way for it to capture much more of the intangible driver metrics. I think it could pair well with some other tools we utilize to collect data to ultimately help the overall company even more. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It is incredibly easy to use. Comparatively it is more intuitive than Power BI and Tableau. I am excited to see live chat feature in it.

What do you like best?

With the report, you can set it to save and then automatically email it to you. This is a great way to not have to recreate things all the time. A good place to integrate all the data and have the sources communicate with each other. It is very easy to build a dashboard and gives you the opportunity to create and judge the data you need. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The report takes some time to prepare initially, and the report is not very intuitive. The initial configuration takes a lot of time and the startup process is long. You must have an internal team dedicated to the configuration and involve the rest of the staff. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you have a lot of data sources and are trying to put them in a place where you can analyze them, that's great. Looker is ideal to help you create and track data and reports that can come from many different places. On the other hand, if you are already using some tools that can help you create reports and analyze data without a lot of data sources, then this may be useless. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Looker throughout the company. We decided to think carefully, even consider building the tool internally, and then decided to use it, but realized that it would be too expensive and time-consuming. We used it to create various reports and monitors and to perform data verification. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The backup module had failures and did not have a good synchronization with our information. The program contains too much content and can disorganize the user's ideas, so they can work on making a simpler version for simpler jobs.

What do you like best?

+ Data Model Layer via LookML which ensure consistency of data, scalability of data governance and data definition, and arguably best self service analytics

I believe Looker is one of the few Data visualization layer on BI stack that have a proper data model layer. The only other BI tools that have something comparable would be holistics.

-consistency

By having LookML as its data model layer all dashboards will have consistent result since its referring to the same data model layer that is managed collaboratively.

-scalability of data governance

managing user access to certain datasets or even fields is scalable as you manage it via lookML. even if you have 1000 dashboards, all 1000 dashboards user access level is controlled centrally in lookML. Prior to using looker I use other highly popular BI tools which almost any startup I know use, once you have so many dashboards, managing its user access becomes a nightmare. In looker, this problem is solved beautifully

-scalability of data definition

if there is a need to change the formula behind certain field, it need to be done once in the lookML layer and it will be applied to all the dashboard that use the data model. making the change of data definition much more manageable compared to other tools

-best self service analytics

with other tools, I will be more hesitant to let business users to directly have the power to generate their own report/dashboard since they may then includes their own data from excel/csv files which then may compromise the data accuracy / consistency.

with looker, self service analytics will be attainable without the need to compromise on data accuracy and consistency

+ Collaboration

Analyst can maintain data model layer together in the lookML, rather than working SILO managing data sources for each of their dashboards.

+ Reproducability

Analyst can check the SQL query behind each chart, therefore enabling them to regenerate it in other platform if needed

+Data Action

other tools perhaps only provide capability to schedule report / alert if certain metric meet certain condition.

in looker you can have data action towards salesforce, zapier and others. therefore you may directly act based on your data to looker to communicate with end user. using zapier you can also connect it to JIRA/wrike/trello to create a ticket that user need to close if certain condition is met, therefore any problem seen in the data will be trackable in project management tools whether the case has been solved or not

+Live chat support Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

- Learning Curve

you need to learn lookML. additional step to be learned compared to other tools.

- Creating Custom Dashboard require Javascript knowledge

- Community isn't as active as others

- LookML might not be straightforward for some cases (e.g sorting pivot column based on values, possible but requiring complicated lookML setup)

- you better have analytics engineering department to manage the lookML layer, or at least have someone to oversee and QC the lookML code deployed by analyst if analyst have access to manage lookML layer directly Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

- you better have analytics engineering department to manage the lookML layer, or at least have someone to oversee and QC the lookML code deployed by analyst if analyst have access to manage lookML layer directly

- if you still need to have report based on data in excel/csv, you can't use Looker. Looker isn't that flexible, but that inflexibility is actually there by design to ensure the data model is safe Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it gets frozen. Sometimes loading takes long time that irritates me. While pulling reports, the data set is found to be limited up to 500 rows due to which we have to face problems in bigger data set. Another thing that irritates me are the glitches that occur in visualization table. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It has absolutely changed the way that we run our business and it given us insight to our data that we have never had before.

Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

This is the biggest issue with looker platform is that it is very expensive product to scale across a large organization as compared to other implement because it takes a bit long time to open the software and then connecting to the data is slow so it does not have the function for perfect visualizations. The other compliment around this implement is that it can lead to data security issues and compliance issues for some organization. Also, one must be well acquaint to the tool to use and needs training before running operation on it and it is requires a paid version to make edit the free version to view files. It is difficult to develop some extra complex reports if when we want to combine two various information resources in one view but it can need some innovative skills. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Looker is an awesome job of adding new features with every new version of this implement. Looker is an amazing tool to create beautiful dashboards because it is very user friendly and to provide the great functions. Looker is the most intelligent way to express our business in a story with charts and graphs which helps people to make decisions quickly and most effectively.

Analysts can define Explore menus to guide team analyses and control business logic. Using the same view across different Explores prevents duplication of logic. Looker empowers team members to use SQL without really realizing it. It gives team members the opportunity to become more acquainted with our company's data. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There's a bit of a discovery issue on Looker. For new users, it's difficult to know where to start or what to click on without asking someone on the Analytics team or receiving training from the Analytics team. The Explore concept works well from an analyst's perspective, however it can be intimidating to navigate if you're not on the analytics team. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

One of the main problems with solve with Looker is visibility into our business. Especially with the Pandemic, team members are more curious about how our business has been performing. Without Looker, team members had to either rely on the Analytics team for business updates or learn SQL. We're also managing our warehouse costs as more folks lean on Looker as opposed to our data warehouse.

We've also set up alerting for anomalous events (e.g., when clientside events stop firing). This has been extremely helpful at detecting potential gaps in our event streams closer to the date of the outage as opposed to when we're already analyzing the data.

The tool itself is very easy to use. I have previously worked with Tableau and Power BI but find Looker to be more intuitive. New features are always coming out and I'm excited to see what's included in each release. The help articles, community and live chat support are also fantastic. Overall I would highly recommend it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I think other BI tools have better visualisation and drill down functionality, but the speed at which Looker releases new features more than makes up for this. It would also be helpful to have more support on documentation and training for new users. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It is easy to use for a person who does not have prior knowledge of data analysis as it does not require advanced skills.

Also the possibility to have shared folders, access the data your company provides in an easy manner is great.

Another thing I find very useful (and a very important one) wold be having data and visualization at the same time, this saves time of doing it from the scratch.

Main upside is once again easy steps, easy to learn, easy to present and share Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The way it gets frozen so often. not sure is it because many users are connected at the same time or it has another reason but sometimes it takes too long to load.

another issue is that it can easily get messy if not used correctly as many people are using different values which can give different results in different dashboards. having more info about similar values when creating them to help us track, would be helpful.

It is important to know how to find exactly what you are looking for - as you may know it but the formulation used in a company is different, this was a trouble for me especially at the beginning, but starting everything from already existed looks helps a bit. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are looking for a platform that can give you and your coworkers shared space for building reports, cross department analysis and is easy to use for everybody regardless of their data skills, this would be a great choice.

It will easily become this tool that will be used everyday by all the parties interested as they will have visibility on every metric included Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Fact that looks are easily modified and I do not have to start everything from a scratch if i have the bases is an advantage, takes less time.

Tracking results everyday even on hourly bases is something that looker gives me most comfort of. The benefits are that I can easily get the info needed and have it many different formats

Shared metrics which are ready to use for everyone in the company is the biggest advantage when working on cross dept problems. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Looker give you the possibility to create whatever you want based on the data you have, it doesn't matter if you're a developer ou explorer.

The possibility to reuse code is amazing and make changes an easy and quick process.

Another great feature is the Git-based-code, it helps when it comes to grouping creation. I can start a project and invite colleagues to help or even see what I'm doing without changing the data we have under production. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There are some "bugs" that lead people to misunderstanding. Example: Bar charts can't hide null value. But you can plot a line chart, change series to bar and then hide null values.

Also, it's still hard to move more than 1 title/look. When you start moving one of them, all of the others change position and you can be confused on each one's real place. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Be careful and patient when it comes to create the Looker environment at your company. Looker is amazing when reusing code, so if you have a structured base, it's easier for explorers to find and use data. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Looker is amazing when it comes to let people explore. We created few dashboards and the managers/analysts have the freedom to explore based on a pre structured query.

The branchs in the Dev Mode is great to speed up projects, because people can help you and work while you are off. This also helped our team to get the right results based on different points of view that lead us to speak the same data over the company. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Balance between advanced users (thanks to the integrated LookML language) and easy to use interface for non-technical people. Setting the right role for each user everyone can have the right amount of complexity when working with Looker. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It's easy to add complexity to your project when several people is working on it at the same time. This can (and should) be controlled with the proper use of roles and groups and educating the users in best practices and format rules.

Also, the role-group configuration needs to be clear to facilitate adding new users. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

When analyzing the cost and price take into account the time spent by your analyst in easy and recurrent tasks like simple queries. This tasks can be automated and improved using Looker and the analysts will be free to develop more interesting and relevant solutions.

Also, if you have any problem or doubt during the process, Looker customer service is probably one of the best I've ever contacted, so don't worry because they will help you for sure. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Looker allows our company to become data-driven by allowing easy access to all the relevant data withouth the supervision or control of an analyst. This has two main advantages:

Dashboards visualization and customization options are poor. Is it possible to customize something but requires advanced javascript / html knowledge. The community gives for a lot of feature proposal and it takes a long time to get improved. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Looker is a brand new option in the market and they are pretty innovating. Google has recently acquired Looker platform and this union should be a great step. If you use Google Suits in your company it would be a good fit too. Pricing options are fair to what it provides. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We are growing from 100 to 1300 data users and Looker is a good option to help those people to navigate the datalake. We can build good dashboards and share them easily and safety using access controls. A good point is that a dashboard user can start their own analysis using a common and validated dataset.

What do you like best?

With Looker you can do Data Analysis for different kind of data and visualize it.

Looker can connect to multiple databases and its Merge feature is great to join different databases.

I have worked on many BI tools like Tableau, Mode but Looker is best and let users customize the code via Lookml. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I would say since Google acquired Looker in recent past, so would love to see Looker as part of GCP suite.

Also, if possible Looker can add support to Analyze data from google sheet or excel sheets.

Looker should be added to the GCP BigQuery UI, so we can query data in BQ and visualize it with single click and have a better experience in Looker. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
