    I wonder just how good this software from Looker really is. It was founded just in 2012, what a deal they made. And you have got so many other big companies that are active in the Business Intelligence space, think of SalesForce, SAS and SAP.

    Exactly. Google has a forward force of scouts who are smart enough to know which one's could be worth acquisitions with plenty of backup resources to spin it off or jettison if it proves a dud for them.
