Our August Meetup event is sponsored by Equifax. Join us and the GCP Analytics Atlanta Meetup Group at the Equifax Office at One Atlantic Center in Midtown for our first meetup together as one GCP Group. The agenda and presentation details can be found below. We look forward to talking GCP with you!


As much as 90 percent of the iceberg is below the surface of the ocean. Analytics platforms are similar: data visualizations are typically what the user sees, but much of the complexity of end-to-end data delivery is hidden beneath the surface.

In this presentation, we’ll dive into the ocean with both Google Data Studio and Looker to see how complete analytics solutions are built using each platform. We’ll consider the role of data engineering, data prep, and data modeling in producing the catalog we source for data visualizations, and we’ll also explore how these products can be used to power analytics in external applications.
