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.

Creating a Domo app in Domo Dev Studio

The ability to create a custom app using Domo Dev Studio is amazing and makes almost any app you can imagine possible to build on the Domo platform. Let's go through some terminology to reduce the learning curve. The following are key terms used in connection with Domo Dev Studio:

  • DS CLI (also known as ryuu) is a command-line utility used to connect to Domo servers, run a local web server, and manage asset resources of apps in Domo.
  • Asset Library is the repository for app definitions in Domo.
  • App Card is a Domo card created from assets in the Asset Library. The card is the executable container for the app.
  • Domo Login is a CLI command that connects the DS CLI commands to a given Domo instance.
  • Domo Init is a command in the DS CLI to copy down an app template to begin coding from a baseline app.
  • Domo Publish is a DS CLI command to push the code and resource files from the development project up to the Asset Library...
