Looker

For less evolved reporting, it is not bad at all. It is not designed to scale, fully. I mean that as long as you do not intend to scale, it is a good product for your company. Log aggregation level reporting is not suited for Looker. Customer facing data reporting is. As long as the reporting is not too multi-dimensional, Looker is good.

Sisense for Cloud Data Teams (formerly Periscope Data)

If you are a technology company that is reliant of accessible data then this is the platform for you. We work with over 10,000 clients with an average of a couple hundred data point per client on any given day. If your volume of reporting and metrics is not at that level yet, it may not be as useful (or, rather, may overload you with information that distracts from your specifics). The use of charts and vanity metrics, however, is incredibly useful for everyone from sales to marketing and everything in between. It helps make data actionable

Pros

Looker

  • It's on-demand and in the cloud, we don't have to mess with AMIs or scaling issues
  • Looker's data domain creating tool is better than anything we've seen
  • LookML, Looker's specialized language is incredibly extensible and allows us to connect and visualize almost any data type

  • Rapid deployment of polished T-SQL-based data visualization charts and dashboards. Periscope supports a variety of database technologies, and allows users to write custom queries to display data.
  • Included caching to reduce server load.
  • Outstanding customer service/support, with expert advice as needed.
  • Constant updates and new features.
  • Built-in SQL formatters take the pain out of manipulating date/time objects.

Cons

Looker

  • Mobile viewing is HTML based, not always highly viewable.
  • Basic operations can be difficult to achieve. There is a function called table calculations which allows this.
  • Running on a single server, the entire instance can slow down if even one user schedules a large dashboard.

Sisense for Cloud Data Teams (formerly Periscope Data)

  • Some of the dashboards can be slow to load; especially when they have lots of features and widgets.
  • The software could be made a little easier for people that don't have a data or programming background.
  • It is pricey so not a great option for small companies or research/home projects.

We've been very happy with Looker so far, and all teams in the organization are starting to see its value, and use it on a frequent basis. It has quickly become our accessible "source of truth" for all data/metrics.

Nontechnical users can create reports easily. Can create customized reports individually or on the whole for the group. Slicing and dicing data through Looker fairly simple. Drill-downs are much better than anticipated. Especially heat map drill-downs, became most popular within the company, considering the company is a location analytics ad tech company.

It could be used easily by business users once they understand basic SQL and the dataset; they could perform customized query according to their needs, without having to ask analysts repeatedly to provide them. The support team is quite responsive, and they could also help directly to make your erroneous dashboard run smoothly.

- They have one of the best chat support platforms- The query raised is answered on time and meets all the requirements of the concerns raised- They also ask for feedback of the service they provide so that they can improve their existing chat bots and service.

Alternatives Considered

Looker

Looker stacks up very well against the other tools we have evaluated and used. All the tools have their own pros and cons. Looker had a better edge in terms of visualizations when we chose to use it. After several updates, other tools began to have newer features. Looker still stands competitive.

Sisense for Cloud Data Teams (formerly Periscope Data)

Periscope is by far the best we looked at - I was evaluating as a user, not the primary decision maker, and user interface and ease of use was the primary factor in my decision. It is very easy to navigate and manipulate, and has an overall very polished view

Return on Investment

Looker

  • Looker was like upgrading from a flip phone to a smartphone for me after using other BI resources in the past.
  • Looker makes it simple to reuse code, allowing us to construct single sources of truth without having to rewrite the fundamental concepts. For all levels of data fluency, the user interface is intuitive and easy to use.
  • Import the same results directly from Looker to excel. [...]

  • Positive Impact: Before Periscope Data was available to my department, I had to search through the Que in Smile Check for the cases that were low hanging fruit. Now Periscope pulls that data and that data only from those Ques and I am able to use the filters for better accuracy.
