Data Platform Company Looker Announces Integration with Workplace by Facebook
Brings Data Securely Into Workflows Through Company-Wide Collaboration Platform
Looker, a leading data platform company, announced its integration for Workplace by Facebook, an enterprise communication and collaboration platform. The integration delivers business insights from Looker directly into Workplace, simplifying workflows for teams and individuals.
Looker eliminates the need to log into a separate tool to view data and critical business insights. Now, data can be pushed into Workplace allowing users to view the insights and take action from where they are already collaborating. The new Looker integration also allows users to automate reports and dashboards to be scheduled, or users can set alerts to automatically notify Workplace users of important changes in the business.
“Organizations are becoming increasingly complex and reliant on fresh, up-to-the-minute data to drive their business,” said Keenan Rice, Vice President of Alliances at Looker. “Combining Looker’s application integration capability with the company-wide collaboration of Workplace further streamlines workflows that rely on critical business data. We’re excited to deliver this unique capability to our joint customers.”
“Companies around the world are using Workplace to transform how they work,” said Anand Dass, Ecosystem Partner Manager of Workplace by Facebook. “Looker’s integration provides a valuable capability for users and teams to get the data they need right in their daily workflow.”
Looker is a complete data platform that offers data analytics and business insights to every department and easily integrates into applications to deliver data directly into the decision-making process. Looker was placed in the 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Analytics and Business Intelligence Platforms. This is the first year Looker has appeared in this Gartner Magic Quadrant, which evaluates vendors based on their completeness of vision and ability to execute.
“We rethought the modern analytics platform from the ground up, creating an integrated, flexible and scalable solution that delivers actionable insights to anyone in an organization. Our rapid growth underscores the value Looker brings to organizations of all sizes in helping everyday users better understand and use the information that drives their business,” said Frank Bien, CEO of Looker. “We’re pleased that Gartner has recognized Looker and are honored to be included in this year’s Magic Quadrant.”
In 2017, Looker grew revenue over 85% while adding over 500 new customers, including Amazon’s Retail Group, Fox Networks Group, Square, trivago, CrossFit and Five Guys.
