What do businesses use the app “Looker” for?


I’ve read their webpage and wiki but still cannot understand. I know what SQL is and databases, etc.
Is it just a way to interact with SQL data through a GUI?

Looker is a data visualization tool, like Tableau. It takes data in its raw form and presents it in a friendly, human-readable form. It’s very common when people like business executives want to peruse data.

As far as I can see, it’s just a data modelling helper.

It wouldn’t just be setup to read from sql; in an app like this there would be a million different dataset types you could read.

Companies use it probably because it makes data much more interpreted to those who prefer visual graphics to quantitative data.
