Overall Satisfaction with Looker

Looker is being used across the whole organization. Looker is our main visualization tool for all of our company reporting.
  • Easy visualization based on SQL Logic.
  • Easy to create pull and push changes.
  • Beautiful graphs.
  • Custom SQL writers can be slow.
  • Sometimes development mode has errors for no reason.
Looker is a lot easier to connect with our data pipelines and for users to create their own scalable Explores. Before, analysts would have to create separate Tableau dashboards for each ask, but now with Lookers Explores, some teams are able to self serve and create their own dashboards.
Very easy to connect!
Very easy to push and pull changes, however, development mode can be tricky sometimes.
Looker is very well suited for analytics teams. It is super easy for analysts to create visualizations that are tied to data pipelines, and very easy for us to make changes. However, the Explore function might be harder for non-technical audiences to understand and therefore we needed to put on a lot of training for stakeholders.
