Google closes $2.6B Looker acquisition – TechCrunch
When Google announced that it was acquiring data analytics startup Looker for $2.6 billion, it was a big deal on a couple of levels.
Today, the company announced that deal has officially closed and Looker is part of the Google Cloud Platform.
While Kurian was happy to announce that Looker was officially part of the Google family, he made it clear in a blog post that the analytics arm would continue to support multiple cloud vendors beyond Google.
“Google Cloud and Looker share a common philosophy around delivering open solutions and supporting customers wherever they are—be it on Google Cloud, in other public clouds, or on premises.
The last deal before the acquisition was a $103 million Series E investment on a $1.6 billion valuation in December 2018.
