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.

Chapter 12: Alerting

We spend so much time as data consumers working to make sense of data. Increasingly, technology is allowing us to turn that dynamic around and make the data work for us. A major way of putting data to work is through alerting technology. Alerts allow continuous monitoring of data, looking for conditions to be met, crossed, removed, and created or have failed. A well-thought-through alerting strategy can be more impactful on business performance than a great dashboard. In fact, an argument can be made that the main reason to have a monitoring dashboard is to automate alerts. People intuitively know what to alert on but lack the technology to execute it. The Domo ecosystem provides the data capture and alerting technology to enable us to implement automated alerting and discover what others are alerting on.

In this chapter we will specifically cover the following:

  • Defining an alerting strategy
  • Understanding the Alert Center
  • Setting alerts on a...
