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.

Chapter 7: Working with Drill Pathways

Often when viewing cards, users will want to drill down to see more details. Every card in Domo, by default, is enabled to drill down to the raw dataset. However, as a card designer, you may want to pre-define the drill path with custom visualizations that communicate more effectively than a raw table view. Creating these drill paths in Domo couldn't be simpler—actually, you just create another chart as a drill path under the main chart and Domo automatically figures out how to enable the drill-down linkages! There is even the ability to drill down to a completely different dataset than the parent card's dataset, provided the column names are the same. This ability to drill to a different dataset is particularly useful on large datasets where the parent dataset is aggregated and enables drilling to the larger dataset details.

In this chapter, we will specifically cover the following:

  • Creating card drill paths
  • Drilling...
