Pros/Cons

  • Pros

  • I like that it's easy to use and it does everything automatically

  • Love this! I can keep my files, slides, images and so on all in one place. In addition, I can share and allow others to edit things as needed. Amazing .

  • Cons

  • Almost no complaints. Its high end GPUs are a bit expensive though. Also, when instances are created in other regions, some error keeps giving them USA as their location.

  • If you have many access keys and services the management site can get a little messy, but once you get used to how to enable and disable api's and then where to go to set them up, all becomes easier.

  • Pros

  • I love how power Looker is and their customer service is above and beyond. They've been super helpful with everything.

  • Easy to use when learned. Data is accessible and easy to compare. Analysis is easy using Dashboards and it is very easy to customize it.

  • Cons

  • Sometimes the requests take time, and with all the software updates, sometimes the documentation is a little lacking, but support is always there to help.

  • The pricing is somewhat high, but if you are a larger company it might be worth the money.
