Data Democratization with Domo

By: Jeff Burtenshaw

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.

Creating digital wallboards

Many large enterprises have digital wallboards – those monitors on the wall running slideshow content. Now, we can too by leveraging the publication we created in the Publishing via a URL section in this chapter. There are two ways to do this – via Direct Connect or by streaming. Each wallboard requires a dedicated device that's capable of running a web browser, such as a Raspberry Pi or a notebook. Let's get started:

  1. Regarding Direct Connect, open a browser, enter the publication URL, and set the browser to full-screen mode.
  2. With the streaming approach (such as using AirPlay, Chromecast, or Roku screen mirroring), open a browser on the dedicated machine that is connected to the streaming/mirroring technology, enter the publication URL, and set the browser to full-screen mode.

We have just learned how to save thousands of dollars by using Domo's DIY publications to set up cool digital wallboards.
