Finally, a data platform with insights for every department.
A Whole New Approach to Business Intelligence
Looker has harnessed the power of SQL to create a uniquely powerful data analytics platform that helps you get real value from your data. Now anyone can ask sophisticated questions of the data using familiar business terms.
Data analysts get knowledge of the data out of their heads and into LookML, Looker’s simple yet powerful data modeling language. Define business metrics (e.g. lifetime customer value, conversion rate) and explain how tables relate to each other once, and then let Looker write the right SQL to answer any data explorers' questions.
Define Metrics Once
Visualizations help you tell a complete story with data. Create easy-to-read reports and beautiful dashboards that also allow users to drill in and keep exploring. Easily share data-rich visualizations anytime--from any device.
Make Data Beautiful
Today’s databases query massive amounts of data with great ease. Because Looker connects directly to your database, you can truly leverage that power. No data to extract. No software to download. No limits on what you can explore.
Leverage the Cloud
When the whole company has reliable, trustworthy answers--and analysts are no longer a bottleneck--everyone can answer their own questions and make more informed, data-driven decisions.

Reduce Human Error
Looker’s agile modeling layer allows you to define your data and control who can access it. Now, your data means the same thing, no matter how it’s accessed. It also ensures that your business logic stays fresh and flexible; you can even move to the newest database without starting from scratch.
Embed Your Way
Looker’s flexibility allows you and your business the capability to customize your data’s aesthetics to meet your branding needs. Ensure that your experience is resonated through every aspect of your operations.
Architected for Security from the Start
Looker’s data platform sits on top of your existing database, using a secure connection to query your data warehouse directly. Looker writes a query to access the data needed to answer your question, returns the result, and puts the answer in a short-lived encrypted cache.
Looker uses a read-only connection to access the minimum amount of data needed to answer your questions and only returns the relevant result set. That means less data duplication, no long-term storage of sensitive data on local machines while leveraging the full power of your existing database security model.
Your Data remains Your Control
Looker is built to ensure that your data is safe and secure by limiting movement of data.
Application permissions, data access, and content access can be set manually in the application, programmatically via Looker’s API, or can be inherited directly from your existing single sign-on authentication protocols.
Data Governance from the Bottom Up
Self-service shouldn’t come at the expense of data governance.
Looker’s platform comes standard with enterprise-grade features including two-factor authentication, SAML-based single sign-on (supporting SAML, OneLogin, and Google Apps), and team management to keep Looker access secure and up-to-date.
Enterprise-Grade Feature Set
Looker offers many options for securing connections to your database, including IP Whitelisting, SSL, SSH, PKI, and Kerberos authentication.
Looker logs every interaction so administrators can audit usage and easily set up scheduled reports and alerts. And because Looker’s data model is version-controlled, you can also track when metric definitions have changed, who changed them and why.
Comprehensively monitored and fully auditable
Because Looker’s data platform provides a single point of contact for employees’ work with your enterprise’s data, it’s far easier to keep track of exactly who accessed what, when, and what they did with it.
