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.

Section 3: Communicating to Win

Everyone has a need to tell stories and they don't have to be boring.

The person who communicates the story in a presentation usually gets the lion share of the credit or blame for the ideas. Having great card content in a dashboard is just a starting point for a story. Telling a story with the right data communicated in an effective way is where we win the hearts and minds of our target audiences. This section will show you a framework for identifying relevant stories and for presenting those stories effectively. Then you will learn the many options for distributing your content with Domo. This includes data driven alerts and context provided instant messaging.

If you know your stuff and can talk about it, but struggle to put it down into an effective story, Domo Stories and best practices shared here will help get your ideas implemented with you as the driving force. And hence, you may reap the rewards of your efforts and success.
