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.

Leveraging Social users

A Social user is a role for unlicensed users in Domo to be able to collaborate via Buzz. Social users can leverage Social collaboration features without a Domo license, and Social users are free and unlimited in number. The Social user is limited to the Buzz functionality and Projects and Tasks features. Social users cannot see pages and cards directly but can see card images in the Conversation Details pane when the topic is a card reference. Let's invite someone as a Social user:

  1. In the My Test Topic conversation, click the … icon to see the Conversation Details pane.
  2. Scroll down and click the INVITE button.
  3. Enter a test email address that you have access to that is not the email you are using as your current Domo user.
  4. If the email is not already a Domo user in your instance, a popup with Invite to Domo will appear, as seen in Figure 13.7:
