What is Looker?

Looker is a data platform which sits on top of your databases and allows users to explore their data without knowing SQL. It does this by creating a semantic layer between users and your databases where you describe and define your data. We build out this semantic layer with LookML (code based and GIT controlled), which we often call modeling the data. This provides consistency, reliability and reusability of your data. Looker is used not just for BI users, but also data scientists. Learn more at www.looker.com.
