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.

In this chapter, we learned how to create dashboard pages and sub-pages. We took a detailed tour of the Analyzer feature set and used Analyzer to create a few new cards with some cool new beast modes and quick filters. The trend and forecast, period-over-period, burn-up, and waterfall charts are heavily used patterns for many use cases beyond sales reporting. We learned that creating a card often involves iteratively going back to data sculpting and beast mode creation activities to get the data in the right shape for card building. Additionally, we got a feel for using properties to fine-tune the visuals on a card. The result was a sales dashboard. It's pretty amazing how quickly we can create fully functional dashboards using the Domo platform.

In the next chapter, we will cover many features for interacting with dashboards and cards.
