All you need for Looker is a web browser which allows for a consistent platform experience. It also facilitates seamless collaboration by allowing you to share content using links.

Optimised for the cloud

Looker has multi-cloud capabilities ensuring your data strategy is future-proof. The platform lets you easily change where you deploy it and which underlying database (or databases) you use.

Trusted data model

Looker strikes the perfect balance between governance and self-service and users of all technical levels can interact with and explore centralised, trusted data and analytic content.

API enabled data experiences

Create rich innovative data experiences that enhance existing processes. Insights are in context and applications users interact with daily.
