Chartio Analytics and Looker Comparison

chartio vs looker illustration

Looker requires strict data modeling to be truly useful. This means longer implementation times and higher TCO. Chartio offers a lot more agility and speed to insights. We recommend people do the majority of their modeling on the database level, where it’s more performant, transparent, reusable, and has less lock-in than Looker’s proprietary modeling language (LookML).
