Looker data modeling in three steps

Step 1

Connect Looker to any database that supports SQL queries and automatically generate a basic LookML model.

Step 2

Collaborate with your team to build on your model, or deploy any one of our 100+ pre-built LookML modeling patterns (Looker Blocks) to help accelerate development.

Step 3

Customize your model to help reflect your company’s unique metrics and easily update and manage your reports from one place.

Data modeling that works for you

Define your company’s business logic in Looker so it can be used by the company. Define your data model once and reference any piece of it anywhere else to avoid writing the same SQL queries over and over again. As your business changes, updated metrics keep everyone aligned around fresh data.

A basic model, instantly

Looker can intelligently scan your data and infers relationships between tables in your schema to build a basic model for you. This basic model uses the relationships already defined within your database to get you up to speed.

We’re prepared for you

Looker can provide pre-built analytical templates (Looker Blocks®) to move you from data to dashboard in minutes when building on common data sources (e.g., Google Analytics or Salesforce). Browse over 100 Looker Blocks on Looker’s Block directory to help you accelerate the pace of your data modeling.
