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.

Understanding Domo application development architecture

Before we start creating an app, it will be helpful to understand the Domo Dev Studio conceptual architecture, as seen in Figure 14.1:

Figure 14.1 – Domo application development conceptual architecture

The white-filled circles are the architecture layers that communicate with each other through APIs. All this application infrastructure is included in the platform. The application developer can leverage this functionality through Domo APIs to custom build the UI scripting piece of the application. Certainly, having all this infrastructure and API functionality available greatly speeds up the time to market (much of the typical application code is already there). And the enterprise readiness of any app developed on the platform is already running on a proven, cloud, enterprise stack, and is deployable with a click in the Domo Appstore.

Dev Studio is a command-line utility also known as ryuu (separate...
