Powerful Features on BigQuery
BigQuery runs on the same hardware as all of Google’s products, which means it scales beyond enterprise-scale...to Google scale. This means that as your data grows, BigQuery stays performant and cost-effective. When it comes to business-critical analytics, you want to leverage all of BigQuery’s power.
Query Cost Estimator
BigQuery charges based on the amount of data you query. Most tools force you to guess what your query will cost. Looker leverages BigQuery’s full toolset to tell you before you run the query (and let you set limits accordingly).
BigQuery makes it easy to handle hierarchical data, but its special syntax leaves most tools at a loss. Looker writes the correct, performant SQL for you.
You’re paying for a next-generation data warehouse that scales infinitely. Looker leverages that power directly, rather than extracting the data like most tools.
"Looker has democratized our use of data across the company. You don’t have to be a person who’s special to be able to do it. Anybody can do it."
