Does anyone like using Looker (as an analyst)? I find it lacking and prefer tableau.

      Agree. Looker is not just a visualization tool rather a data platform. Would love to see Tableau run a join on a 50B row table in 20s though.

    Since everyone uses office suite, they are already killing me with PowerBI.

    Is Looker similar to Thoughtspot? If so there is no comparison between Looker and Tableau. I’m not sure it is a visualization tool like Tableau or QlikView.

    Tableau is better but so much more expensive. I’ve never used looker but i heard it’s got less functionalities than Tableau. But you get what u pay for.
