Looker's Open Source tools aim to unlock additional value from any potential use case supported by the Looker API. Third parties can create their own data experiences, which may be custom or embedded into the Looker platform. These parties can develop with the speed to market and collaboration value of the Looker community.
Finally, new visualizations include waterfall, box plot, trellis and word cloud. As with previous Looker visualizations, the new visualizations aim to give businesses a new way to look at their business data. Looker identifies waterfall as a particularly helpful tool for examining sales and financial data, box plot for statistical analysis, trellis for breaking data into smaller portions, and word cloud for free text data.
