Looker, Kount and Aprimo All Make New Connections

Looker Connects to Amazon S3 Data Lake Through Amazon Athena

Looker

Looker is a data access and analysis tool that logically restructures SQL data sources. That is, it lets analysts create metrics, dimensions, transformations, table relationships, and other structures needed for SQL queries without physically reorganizing the data.  A different Looker interface then lets non-technical users examine the data without writing SQL. Looker just announced integration with Amazon Athena, which allows SQL queries against data in an Amazon S3 data lake (which itself is not a SQL database). In simpler terms: Looker sends SQL queries to Athena which gets the answers from S3.  In even simpler terms: marketers can query a big pool of S3 data. That could include the customer data you'd want in a CDP.

The basic organizational unit is a marketing “activity” such as an email campaign or media buy. I'm just including it as a reminder that marketers need more than customer information.
