Looker is a new kind of data platform—a radically simple approach to data, built on today’s technology. By spreading data culture across your organization, Looker makes it possible for everyone to make better decisions with data.

A Complete Platform
Where it previously took a hodgepodge of tools, now there's Looker. Integrate, transform, govern, explore, visualize, and deliver your data, all with one platform. Looker includes all of the functionality you need, without the compromises that come from decades of legacy cruft.

Today’s Technology
Looker is modern software. It harnesses the full power of today’s most advanced databases, is browser-based, and has a full RESTful API. And Looker is accessible from wherever—on mobile, in Slack, by webhook. Databases have evolved, it’s time for data platforms to do the same.

Creating Data Culture
The only way to unlock the full power of data is to let everyone obtain reliable answers to their questions. Looker tackles that problem head-on. Looker gets the data’s meaning out of analysts’ heads and into software. That multiplies analysts' effectiveness, so they can concentrate on the hard problems, rather than wasting time answering the same question over and over.

How Looker Works

Looker is rethinking the data platform from the ground up. Looker keeps the best of what came before, but jettisons all the compromises that came with slow data warehouses, siloed BI tools, and outdated methods of software development.

Data analysts write business logic in LookML, Looker’s simple, powerful data modeling language. They define business metrics (e.g. lifetime customer value, conversion rate), explain how tables relate to each other, and curate the dimensions and measures that business users see.

Data explorers dive into the data from Looker’s interface—pointing and clicking to select, filter, and group the data they need. Looker seamlessly translates their exploration into SQL using the business logic the data analysts defined.

Looker displays the results so explorers can visualize them, explore further, or manipulate them using Looker expressions (spreadsheet-like functions that business users are already familiar with). Results can be shared, saved, downloaded, added to dashboards, or scheduled right from the web interface. That lets data consumers across the company access the information and start exploring themselves.

The result is a true data culture, where the whole company can use data to make better decisions, where analysts are no longer a bottleneck, where everyone can answer their own questions and stay on the same page.
