Business users want the power of analytics—but analytics can only be as good as the data. To perform data discovery and exploration, use analytics to define desired business outcomes, and derive insights to help attain those outcomes, users need good, relevant data. Executives, managers, and other professionals are reaching for self-service technologies so they can be less reliant on IT and move into advanced analytics formerly limited to data scientists and statisticians. However, the biggest challenge nontechnical users are encountering is the same one that has been a steep challenge for data scientists: slow, difficult, and tedious data preparation.

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. This has helped alleviate a major BI pain point: centralized, IT-dominated solutions have been too slow and too brittle to serve the business.
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
