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 1: Domo Ecosystem Overview

Before Domo, answering business questions was often a laborious, cross-disciplinary process requiring a diverse mix of technical and business resources to accomplish it and, far too often, was much too slow and expensive—falling short on the objective of informing decisions. Enter the Domo ecosystem, a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solution consisting of five core integrated parts: Acquire, Present, Communicate, Extend, and Govern. This integrated architecture democratizes the process of answering business questions, which means that everything a user needs to use data to answer relevant business questions is available to them without having to wait for specialists.

You'll explore the Domo ecosystem by reading through the following topics:

  • Introducing the Domo ecosystem
  • Acquiring a data pipeline
  • Presenting the story dashboard
  • Communicating with Domo Buzz
  • Extending with apps and APIs
  • Governing security and operations
