Data Stack: BigQuery + Looker
Extended Data Team:
CIS conducted a 6-months long trial focused on BigQuery and Looker, during which time we worked on complex use cases to equip the BI and E-commerce teams with all the necessary tools to grant their self-service analytics objective.
Following unprecedented changes in the tourism sector caused by the pandemic, and a merger with Globalia, Ávoris felt the need to transform from within. The BI team was migrating to Amazon Athena, while the e-commerce department planned to modernize their data warehouse with BigQuery. Looker would enable both to gain autonomy, harness operational insights and decision-making.
Greater flexibility of inputs & outputs, enhanced productivity and decision making were all valuable aspects at the time of choosing Looker. But the deciding factor was ease of modelling data - that is, converting raw data into curated information that addresses the user’s questions with a simple drag-and-drop. This allowed the team to eliminate the barrier of SQL for end users who can now quickly obtain actionable insights.
Ávoris has a long history of mergers that have brought about multiple sources, tools and applications. The E-commerce and IT teams lead the way on the journey towards a data-driven culture. Great data accessibility and data governance, ease of use, and agile reporting without silos which in turn allows to make fast, well-informed decisions, are quoted as the main advantages of implementing Looker..
