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.

In the previous chapters, you learned how to acquire and sculpt your data. Now, let's turn our attention toward creating cards and dashboards with the data. Analyzer is a tool that is used to create individual cards that are contained in dashboard pages. For navigation purposes, the dashboard pages are arranged into a logical tree structure of up to three layers deep, organizing how the content is presented. A Card is simply a chart contained inside of a tile on a dashboard page. Analyzer is commonly referred to as a Card Builder, but it is also a powerful ad hoc Data Exploration Tool. Additionally, many card types support interactive filtering while being viewed from the dashboard.

In this chapter, we will focus on the card-building functionality of Analyzer along with its interactive card filter features. Analyzer controls the settings of specific visual characteristics related to the charts, such as the chart type, filters, sorting, the summary...
