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 databases

Often, you need to connect to a database server. Domo has connectors for databases such as Snowflake, Mongo, Vertica, Oracle, SQL Server, MySQL, Postgres, IBM DB2, Informix, Sybase, Redshift, Aurora, Google Cloud Storage, Google Big Query, Hive, Teradata, and Firebase.

These connectors are found in the DATA menu and the DATABASE submenu. These connectors make it easy to connect to many popular databases. However, for these connectors to access the databases directly from the cloud, the database server firewalls may need to whitelist the Domo connector services' IP addresses. Here is a detailed list of the IP addresses to whitelist:

If you have direct access to one of the database systems listed, then follow these steps:

  1. Click on the DATA main menu item.
  2. Click on the DATABASE sub-menu item.
  3. Search for the database.
  4. Click on the database tile.
  5. Click the CONNECT button in the tile.
