Data Discovery: The Balance Created by Modern Data Modeling

October 5, 2016

The focus of modern business intelligence has been self-service; pushing raw data into the hands of end users quickly with an accessible user interface so they can get their own answers fast. This has alleviated a major pain point — data have-nots created by complicated, IT- dominated solutions.

However, this new world of self-service BI brings with it it's own issue — data chaos. When everyone is looking at the data their own way, people find different answers to the same questions. To strike the balance, you need a solution that can offer both: governance without bottlenecks and self-service without chaos. Data modeling is a huge, valuable component of BI that has been largely neglected.

In this webinar we will discuss Looker's novel approach to data modeling and how it powers a data exploration environment with unprecedented depth and agility. Some topics we will cover:

- A new architecture beyond direct connect

- Language-based, git-integrated data modeling

- Abstractions that make SQL more powerful and more efficient

- Live demo of this solution on raw NYC Taxi data.
