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 14: Extending Domo with Domo Apps

Imagine that we want to develop a new enterprise software application. We could start from scratch, or we could look for a framework to leverage. The open source community (via reusable code libraries) has both decreased the time needed to develop applications and increased the functional richness of many applications. Nevertheless, even with code libraries, it is still a tough job building a bespoke application. There are many layers of architecture, including data tiers, business logic tiers, security, user management, mobile apps, and scalable infrastructure. What if we were to discover a platform where much of what a developer needs for building an enterprise-grade application already existed and all that remained was to connect the data to the application functionality via HTML, CSS, and client scripting? That would be fantastic! We will learn what the Domo Dev Studio Framework delivers, and how to leverage it to extend the Domo platform...
