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.

Vendor lock-in is a real thing.

Technology buyers have long been wary of vendor lock in, a situation where the technology vendor's solution is proprietary and a walled garden that the vendor can use to effectively extort continued use. Fortunately, the Domo platform is built on the philosophy that the data is the customer's data and they should be able to use their data with whatever technologies they desire or need. While the Domo platform provides the most comprehensive suite of tools and technologies for Business Intelligence (BI) in the industry it still is an open, community friendly platform.

In this section, you will learn how to extend the Domo platform using HTML, JavaScript, and Python to add client and server functionality to meet your bespoke app needs. You will also see how to leverage third party tools like SageMaker and Jupyter Workspaces to access integrated best of breed AI/ML technology.
