What is Looker?

Looker is a data platform that sits on top of databases and allows users to explore their data without knowing SQL. It does this by creating a semantic layer between users and databases, where you can 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 data. Looker is used not just for BI users, but also for data scientists.
