Looker is the modern analytics and business intelligence platform that is a part of Google Cloud. One of the best unified modern data platforms in the market, Looker can stand as the link between managing raw data and turning that data into digestible, actionable information. Looker can connect with any SQL database/data warehouse and facilitate the analysis and visualization of the data. Along with core functionality, Looker also provides additional features like git version control, user management, security, etc.
A common workflow in Looker starts with defining LookML files. Once all the required LookML files are created, users can query different Explores and generate Looks (visualizations). These Looks can be put together inside a dashboard to serve a specific business use case.
Looker provides very granular access control, and Looker admins can manage what a user group can do or see in Looker by specifying the following accesses:
One of the best features Looker provides is the ability to control column-level accesses using access grants. This can help restrict sensitive data like PII to a set of users, allowing strong principles of least privilege.
