Compare top business intelligence tools and features and see why Looker stands out

Tableau is optimized for in-memory data extracts, which, over time creates management and governance challenges. Looker’s centralized, agile modeling layer creates a trusted environment for all users to interact with — all without any data extraction.

Power BI is a cloud offering, but can only be deployed in Microsoft’s own Azure public cloud environment, limiting future flexibility. Looker’s multicloud flexibility offers a modern cloud and on-prem SQL database solution future-proofs your data strategy.

MicroStrategy’s centralized semantic layer requires skilled IT resources, leading to bottlenecks and limited agility. Looker’s LookML centralized, accessible modeling layer lets more users collaborate.

Qlik Sense and Qlikview require data to be extracted to a proprietary in-memory database. Looker’s centrally managed modeling layer promotes reuse of dimensions and measures as business rules only need to be defined once without extracts.
