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.

“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.”
