Beyond Data Discovery - The Value Unlocked by Modern Data Modeling

Published By: Looker     Published Date: Dec 03, 2015
The focus of modern business intelligence has been self-service; pushing data into the hands of end users more quickly with more accessible user interfaces so they can get answers fast and on their own.

What has been masked is a lack of innovation in data modeling. Data modeling is a huge, valuable component of BI that has been largely neglected. In this webinar, we discuss Looker’s novel approach to data modeling and how it powers a data exploration environment with unprecedented depth and agility. Topics covered include: • A new architecture beyond direct connect • Language-based, git-integrated data modeling • Abstractions that make SQL more powerful and more efficient
