Autogenerated Code

Futuremodel is a framework that automatically generates LookML using a point and click interface. The code it generates is highly optimized and executes as fast and in many cases, faster than native LookML.

Code development, testing, debugging and maintenance are managed for you.

Flexible Architecture

Looker is inflexible because it depends on static models formed at the time of project creation. FM, instead, decomposes complex data structures into elemental structures that are dynamically generated at run-time.

As a result, operations that are tedious in native LookML, such as data transformation and statistical aggregation*, can be done in a few keystrokes in FM.

Enhanced Analytics

This flexible architecture allows us to easily create enhanced tools (such as period-over-period, cohorts and geospatial analysis) and we’re adding new tools all the time.

In fact, if you have a specific problems you are grappling with, let us know and we’ll implement it for you.

What is FM?

Futuremodel is a platform written on Looker that automatically generates LookML using a point and click interface. Business analysts, IT professionals, managers and executives can get the benefit of Looker without having to become LookML coders.

How do I use FM?

Futuremodel provides simple extensions to the native Looker interface so it can be easily mastered by anyone familiar with Looker. To the Looker interface, Futuremodel adds two pre-made Explores - DataHub and Metadata...

?

Are there reasons an experienced LookML developer would use FM?

The Futuremodel interface typically generates well-structured LookML 10-20 faster than an experienced LookML developer can. The resulting code is well-structured, optimized and bug-free. “Editing code” generated long ago or by someone else can be done by simply changing a setting in the visual interface instead of reverse engineering the code.

Besides auto-code generation, are there other benefits?

Futuremodel provides interactive tools that greatly simplify transformation and organization of data tables and provides many high-level functions such as, [Davis] that are tedious to write manually. People with Futuremodel Accounts can view online resources that document its functionality.
