Powerful features on BigQuery

BigQuery runs on the same hardware as all of Google’s products, which means it scales beyond enterprise-scale...to Google scale. This means that as your data grows, BigQuery stays performant and cost-effective.

Machine learning

Looker reduces complexity for quicker model development in BigQuery. Reduce wait-time, operationalize workloads, and get the predictive metrics you need.

Query cost estimator

BigQuery charges based on the amount of data you query. Most tools force you to guess what your query will cost. Looker leverages BigQuery’s full toolset to tell you before you run the query (and let you set limits accordingly).

Nested tables

BigQuery makes it easy to handle hierarchical data, but its special syntax leaves most tools at a loss. Looker writes the correct, performant SQL for you.

Modern architecture

You’re paying for a next-generation data warehouse with near infinite scalability. Looker leverages that power directly, rather than extracting the data like most tools.

Looker has democratized our use of data across the company. You don’t have to be a person who’s special to be able to do it. Anybody can do it.
