LookML: Looker’s modeling language

Looker’s secret sauce is LookML, a powerful SQL-based modeling language. Analysts can use LookML to centrally define and manage business rules and definitions in one Git, version-controlled data model. LookML uses the information in the model to create efficient SQL queries on behalf of users. The model can remove technical skills as a potential barrier and frees up the data team to focus on innovation.

Looker integration with Looker Studio

The first integration between Looker and Looker Studio allows users to connect to Looker's semantic model and analyze, explore, and visualize that data in Looker Studio. This integration allows people to use the same tool to create reports that rely on both ad-hoc and governed data, bringing together the best of both worlds—a governed data layer, and a self-serve solution that allows analysis of both governed and ungoverned data.

Looker (Google Cloud core)

Looker (Google Cloud core) is Looker, built on Google Cloud infrastructure. It is available as a Google Cloud service and integrated within the existing Google Cloud portfolio of services in the Google Cloud console. From the console, users can now start and manage their own Looker instances.
