Overview of this book

Domo is a power-packed business intelligence (BI) platform that empowers organizations to track, analyze, and activate data in record time at cloud scale and performance. Data Democratization with Domo begins with an overview of the Domo ecosystem. You’ll learn how to get data into the cloud with Domo data connectors and Workbench; profile datasets; use Magic ETL to transform data; work with in-memory data sculpting tools (Data Views and Beast Modes); create, edit, and link card visualizations; and create card drill paths using Domo Analyzer. Next, you’ll discover options to distribute content with real-time updates using Domo Embed and digital wallboards. As you advance, you’ll understand how to use alerts and webhooks to drive automated actions. You’ll also build and deploy a custom app to the Domo Appstore and find out how to code Python apps, use Jupyter Notebooks, and insert R custom models. Furthermore, you’ll learn how to use Auto ML to automatically evaluate dozens of models for the best fit using SageMaker and produce a predictive model as well as use Python and the Domo Command Line Interface tool to extend Domo. Finally, you’ll learn how to govern and secure the entire Domo platform. By the end of this book, you’ll have gained the skills you need to become a successful Domo master.

One of the most sought-after features in any BI tool is the ability to export the data to an Excel worksheet. Although with Domo, you will find less of a need to do this, at times, it is still helpful to extract the data into Excel for further analysis.

Let's go through the steps to do an export from a card into Excel:

  1. On the Quarterly Sales Trend card, click on the rectangle with the up arrow icon and select the Send / Export option to bring up the choices, as shown in Figure 9.10:

  1. Click on Excel. This will immediately download an Excel file to the Downloads folder of your machine's hard drive. The file will be named after the title of the card, which, in this case, is Quarterly Sales Trend.xlsx.

And that's it—just a couple of clicks to get the data into Excel.
