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.

Applying a storytelling pattern using Domo Stories

Time to upgrade our Sales monitoring dashboard to use the Domo Stories user interface (UI). This will empower us to effectively tell the story supporting our story statement using a storytelling pattern in a live dashboard.

Next, let's copy the Sales dashboard as the starting point for the story dashboard and convert the dashboard page to the Domo Stories UI, as follows:

  1. Click on the page wrench menu icon and click Save as.
  2. Enter 2020-Q4 West Region Sales Miss as the New Dashboard Title value.
  3. Check both Duplicate all Cards boxes so that any changes we make for the story won't change the original Sales dashboard and Go to the new Page when done options.
  4. Click SAVE.
  5. On the 2020-Q4 West Region Sales Miss page, click on the page wrench icon and click Design Dashboard, and in the popup, click the DESIGN DASHBOARD button.
  6. This will open the Stories EDITING DASHBOARD interface.
