No need to learn a new proprietary language
With all the demands on your data team, there’s no time to delay insights while analysts learn LookML. With Periscope Data, users can directly analyze using languages they already know — SQL, Python and R — allowing customers to get their analysis up and running within an hour.
No requirement to build a data model for every analysis
Looker requires data analysts to pre-define metrics before every analysis, making Looker incompatible with fast, ad-hoc analytics discouraging a culture of experimentation. Periscope Data gives teams the flexibility to model in real time, offering the option to explore both modeled and raw data and easily answer unpredicted questions.
No vendor lock-in
Looker locks organizations into a proprietary layer that cannot be leveraged in future BI initiatives or products. This prevents organizations from adapting quickly to unexpected changes.
Periscope Data believes in the open approach, which lets data teams instantly query all their data sources using common tools on a single platform without requiring any additional steps.
End-to-end BI & analytics
Looker does not effectively support advanced analytics, requiring APIs and SDKs to build predictive models or integrate data science workflows.
Periscope Data is a full-spectrum solution that answers all your BI and advanced analytics questions.
