"At Yahoo, we use Looker as the front end for all of our data stores, so for the business user, they just have to go to one tool and they can query the data themselves."
Yahoo! gave Looker access to a team of 1000 who use Looker to get the data they need to do their jobs.
The Y! Mobile Team, for example, uses Looker to monitor app usage in real time. This data helps them to view the data from a variety of perspectives and demographics, so they can make improvements to their app as needs arise.
Thousands of questions can be asked every day without having to go through a single data queue, and every answer can be traced back to the same source. With everyone on the same page, the Yahoo team can continue to innovate and bring data into every conversation.
