Santa Cruz, CA – June 19, 2018 – Looker, a leading data platform company, today announced that it is the highest rated vendor in the May 2018 Gartner Peer Insights “Voice of the Customer”: Analytics and Business Intelligence Platforms Market.
As of March 31, 2018, Looker has an Overall Rating of 4.65 stars out of 5 in the Analytics and Business Intelligence Platforms market, based on 34 reviews. Gartner defines a modern analytics and business intelligence (BI) platform as “a self-contained architecture that enables nontechnical users to autonomously execute full-spectrum analytic workflows from data access, ingestion and preparation to interactive analysis and the collaborative sharing of insights.”
“We are proud to be recognized by our customers as the highest rated vendor in this 2018 Gartner Peer Insights report,” said Frank Bien, CEO of Looker. "We believe it's a tremendous validation of our different approach to BI and analytics -- creating a single data platform as opposed to a myriad of point solutions that customers have to stitch together themselves.”
