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.

Importing data from email attachments

The DataSet via Email connector is used to acquire data from scheduled email attachments (Excel or CSV files) when source system APIs or other direct access paths are not available. Using the append option, each upload is added to the dataset, creating a historical record that enables trend analysis. The connector generates a unique email address that is associated with the dataset. After the email address is created, you can send an email with the attachment to that email address and the connector will process the email and update the dataset accordingly.

To use the email connector, follow these steps:

  1. Click on the DATA main menu item.
  2. Click on the CLOUD APP menu item.
  3. Search for email.
  4. Click on the DataSet VIA Email tile.
  5. Click the CONNECT button in the tile.
  6. Click the GET THE DATA button in the upper right to go to the Details section of the connector setup wizard.
  7. Click the orange COPY EMAIL button.
