The Looker difference

 

Data Teams

Old Way
New Way

Step 1

Do heavyweight transformations on data to prepare it for storage in highly manicured legacy databases Store all your data in a performant, less-structured database

Step 2

Extract a small subset of your data, store it somewhere else, and treat it again to analyze it ("ETL") Use Looker's unique modeling layer to make all data available to anyone by doing the transformation at the time of query ("ELT")

Step 3

Ask questions only of extracted data, and start over for any new questions Ask any questions of any data, without having to extract subsets or start over for new questions. Access data on any device, deliver data to any workflow, or build custom data product with powerful APIs
 

Product Builders

Old Way
New Way

Step 1

Try building a data application, get overwhelmed by building and maintaining data pipelines and authentication from scratch Trust a technology partner like Looker with true governance, scalability, and modern APIs for data

Step 2

Trust a vendor, but be disappointed by high costs and poor performance at scale Build data-powered products using modern dev workflows, APIs, and SDKs to deliver governed analytics at scale to partners, customers, or internal teams

Step 3

Give up on the heavy maintenance required with a vendor and start over at Step 1 Monetize data by offering the most powerful data experiences in premium tiers
 

Data Consumers

Old Way
New Way

Step 1

Ask the data team a question, and be forced to wait days or weeks for an answer (data bottleneck) Ask any question of all the data and get answers in seconds

Step 2

Pull your own numbers, but get different answers than your colleagues (data chaos) Drill into row-level detail on your results to ask and answer the next question

Step 3

Start over at Step 1 and slow everything down, or give up trusting any data Take action directly from the data with any workflow integration, from scheduling an email to filing a JIRA ticket to offering a promotion—and more
