Overall Satisfaction with Looker

We use Looker in just the administrative side of our organization rather than throughout the whole group. This is mainly due to the specific purpose of the software and also because it can be a little difficult to use for non-trained individuals. The best aspect of it is its ability to quickly share and present BI data to anyone.
  • Great management of complex and large amounts of data.
  • Stunning visuals.
  • Easy sharing of products and results.
  • Mobile version is not the same caliber as the full version.
  • Usage can become complex when performing unusual processes.
  • Loading data can sometimes take a while.
Looker provides really excellent customer service in comparison to other similar products. The sharing aspect of Looker is also a big plus, which allows multiple users to access the data at the same time. We have also found it to stand out among competitors with its dashboard manipulation and ability ot customize.
I feel that Looker performs above average for data source connectivity. It has some issues, which are primarily associated with merging data sets (a problem which becomes worse when large data are used), but overall I have been pleased with its ability to integrate and source data for smooth use in the program.
Looker is definitely one of the top BI software for data sharing and collaboration. The ability for multiple users to access and manipulate data is great and one of the best aspects of this program. This is an especially useful tool for large businesses where easy sharing is of upmost importance.
Looker is an excellent option for managing and displaying complex business data without too much hassle or waiting. This ability allows us to quickly understand trends and statistics, but it should not be used for in-depth statistical analysis. It is a great first stop when looking at data, but other software should be used for further research.
