Reviews (1-25 of 60)
- Exceptional Transform area of the platform - any/all raw data can be manipulated and combined to create datasources that are very useful for our departments.
- Visualization layer is clean and is very business presentable. Its simple but includes depth. Visuals can be created/used by all roles throughout our firm, its not limited to analysts.
- Ability to communicate and talk about insights in the data - the communication tool is exceptional. I can @ mention specific users to bring attention to a discovery. I can start a private chat. I can annotate and communicate what I am seeing. I love it.
- Mobile experience is excellent. When I am on the road i can actively monitor and engage with my team due to my Domo dashboard on my mobile device. Its amazing to run the business and not worry while away from the office.
- Some user experience issues need to be addressed - but full features? Domo tends to do an excellent job when it comes to feature set.
- Connecting Data - Domo has a variety of connector, including Google Sheets, so practically all data can be inputted and correlated across a company.
- Visualization - Domo has the ability to create a number of visualizations.
- Calculated Metrics - In Domo you can create your own metrics using existing ones and manipulating them with formulas.
- Intuitive ETL's - Domo's ETL function is pretty straightforward and easy to learn. I personally think the layout it fun to use sometimes.
- Copying Reports - In Excel or Google Sheets, I like to make copies of similar reports and modify them as necessary for users. In Domo, makes copies of reports (called cards) but all copies are connected. So if you adjust the copy, it changes the original. This means a user has to recreate the report from scratch and then adjust it.
- Unforgiving SQL - Domo does allow users to write their own SQL codes, which is great. However, Domo's SQL code is pickier than the other SQL database I've used (Metabase).
- Text Alerts - Domo's alerts aren't always the smartest. Some of my dashboards are about the sales teams monthly performance and I get notified when there is a change of more than 20%. I always get notified at the start of the month that reports have changed from 'x' number to zero. This is expected because it's a monthly report and I hate getting texts about it. The only reason I don't term them off so I can be aware if something breaks in the middle of the month.
At Daltile, we are able to provide electric cost to plant controllers as soon as ERCOT publishes it intra-day, sales to a ticket line to all the field, and hundreds of other metrics. Our sales dataset is designed to answer any question you could ask about what is selling, where and through what avenue. There are 1500 plus cards driven off that dataset alone to give people across the company the view of sales that they need.
The ultimate advantage of Domo is that it is both a data warehouse and for visualization. Power-users in each department can build cards and data for their own teams without programmers. Build the sales dataset once and anyone can build off of it. You do not build one-off reports, you build views of the data as you need them. Cards take a few minutes to build after the hard work of building the underlying dataset is done. People are not spending hours each week building the same report over and over. IT is freed up to work on more important things and so are analysts.
- Build once. modify, reuse, and stop doing the same thing over and over.
- Everyone is working from the same page/dataset.
- Super easy to get data in and out of Domo.
- Huge datasets can be challenging. Dataflows that move hundreds of millions of rows can take a very long time.
- Domo needs a native SAP connector. Third party products like CData are severely limited in their ability to extract data from SAP
- Domo can get too focused on the next whiz-bang feature and neglect improving core functionality that might not get as much wow factor.
Dealing with more than a couple hundred million rows of data will be challenging. You will need to engage their development teams to move data fast enough with that kind of volume. That said, they have been hugely supportive and created custom solutions to help us get our reporting out in a timely fashion.
- Domo is flexible, making it easy to integrate a number of datasources quickly.
- Domo's UI is nice and friendly to business leaders.
- Domo's integration with R/Python is a game-changer.
- Domo Buzz is annoying and not helpful.
- Building cards is easy, but as technology improves I'd expect things to get even easier to build.
- I'd like to see more investment in the R/Python integration.
- Easy-to-understand user interface
- Connecting with other software and data sources
- Communication capacity among users
- Processing could be slow for very large datasets.
- Pivot table functionality is limited.
- Visualizations: many options with a very well designed/aesthetic.
- Date ETL: all the tools you need to connect, transform and manipulate your data.
- Alerts: have your data tell you when you need to take actions.
- Data processing times can feel very slow. Often the longest portion of a data flow procedure is moving the data. If there were a way to do all of the transformations without moving the data that would be amazing.
- Domo allows for a high level of flexibility in reporting by allowing me to customise reports based on a variety of factors over time. Because it updates in real time I can monitor results as evaluations are received.
- Domo is simple and intuitive to use; the value of the outputs drives my interest in continuing to engage with Domo since it provides useful data quickly and easily.
- Domo allows me to generate easy-to-read reporting to share with a wide range of stakeholders, quickly and accurately. The data can be exported in many formats allowing me to customise what I need for any given application / use.
- I am satisfied with Domo just the way it is.
- Domo provides seamless drill downs that allow users to dig into the details of the data, but also lets the card owner protect their more sensitive data with data permission settings which is invaluable.
- Domo offers graph types for any data visualization need that you may have.
- Domo includes a description field in which the card owner can list the objective of the card, write instructions to the user on how to use it, list out the caveats that go along with each card and describe how the card was created and filtered.
- I would like to be able to apply simple formulas in the data labels / hover labels (i.e. divide 2 measures to get a ratio)
- Auto save feature would be nice
- Text formatting in the Description text field
- Visual representation. Domo allows each user to graph data sets for an easy, quick glance at how a particular metric is performing.
- Customization. Domo allows you to set up your home pages to allow for quick access to the cards that you use most.
- Fully functional phone App that integrates all the functionality of the desktop site.
- Updates. It would be great if Domo could update more frequently, especially in the training aspect, as it seems to lag considerably. Ultimately, real-time refresh rates would be ideal as with Club and sales.
- The integration with "Reflexis." Having the ability to see the status of said task managers would help keep the finger on the pulse of where we are at with various Reflexis tasks/recalls, etc....
- Better filter options in sales within departments. For example: when pulling top 50 or 100 sales items, there is no need to see Gift card sales. so the ability to filter by sub-department or request sub-departments would be great.
- Training. I would love for Domo to do live training via webex to highlight functions that Domo can do. I imagine there is an entire world of functionality out there just waiting to be used, but a lot of the time we do not have the time to find it.
- Statistical analysis at your fingertips in a way that is easy to use, easy to interpret, and easy to adapt to your needs.
- Real-time data at your fingertips for as many different metrics as you could possibly want to measure.
- Graphically it is a program that you can adjust to your personal wishes - set it up in a way that best suits you & your team.
- I haven't found areas that require improvement - only areas that I need to learn how better to utilize. There is so much adaptability that you could spend a considerable amount of time getting it adjusted to what you are looking for.
- This may already be available and I haven't figured it out yet, but I spend a lot of time using the various filters on my data and would like to be able to "set it & forget it" for certain pages that I review daily.
- Changing the data assumptions like time-frame, quantities, customer information, revenue, cost, defect types, etc in a matter of seconds.
- Sharing relevant charts or data tables with employees during meetings.
- Cross-referencing. Clicking on a single data point and this takes me to the next related report.
- I find Domo difficult to navigate. I don't use it daily, so I'm not as proficient as I would like.
- An easier way to print out graphs, charts, and tables.
- Data Visualization, Dashboards
- Flexible integration
- Mobile accessibility
- Ease of use
- Better upfront support and on-going support for new users in an organization.
- Dashboard access to non-licensed users
- Somewhat expensive
- Though Mr. Roboto is pretty basic, it does tell the story and help you with a springboard to start off when you are in Analysis mode.
- PDP Feature allows different levels of access, restricting employees from "cognitive overload" and getting the level details "just right" depending on their roles.
- Buzz- while it can become annoying at times, it's a great social way to share data and insights. Well clients to freak out over security concerns though **Sigh !
- Shared ETL feature is super powerful.
- Improve AI Feature - Mr. Roboto is a great start and I strongly believe it can do a lot more.
- Provides data acquisition, transformation and visualization all administered from one cloud-based tool. No switching between tools or cobbling different products together.
- Provides GUI and MySQL interfaces for data manipulation for both entry-level and advanced users.
- Huge amount of data connectors out of the box, plus you can easily create your own custom connectors.
- The product does not provide a separate development, test and production environment. Nor does it allow objects to be promoted from one environment to another. This makes development work more tedious than it needs to be.
- It is currently not possible to track the lineage of a specific field from data connector acquisition thru transformation(s) into the visualization (cards). You must manually track it through each object. Changing a fieldname throughout the environment can be time-consuming.
- Does not provide a simple means to generate a data dictionary for the datasets that are constructed for reporting. You can access table/field names and datatypes but it does not include descriptions of the data.
- For years, our company president wanted visualize and easily find insights from a dataset that was "previously unanalyzable" due to its complexity and size - we were able to load the data into Domo and provide easy-to-read graphs that drilled into sensible data, this only took a few days of cleaning and building!
- Google Analytics is relied on by us (like just about everyone else) for website usage. We have several GA profiles, previously we had to manually enter or export key datapoints to visualize all properties on one graph. By easily setting up imports to Domo we can now see trends across all of our websites (in different GA properties) on one graph (it sounds small, but was very impactful)
- Domo also has enabled us to query and easily report on some detailed usage that would previously have been several manual steps and quite cumbersome within GA directly.
- We (of course) would like our sales field to focus on selling, and they aren't always great at numbers and reports - we've been able to create super easy to use reports that our field can use on mobile or desktop for an at a glance look to better manage and optimize their sales opportunities.
- When changing cards from one dataset to another any beast modes are not carried over, it would often make life easier if there was an easier way to copy beast mode calculations from one dataset to another.
- Domo documentation, university and Dojo are extremely helpful when we run into problems. However, when support beyond that is needed their help desk seems to have a hefty backlog - the amount of time to resolve tickets is frustrating sometimes.
- Dashboard displays
- Multiple, flexible ways of doing the same thing
- Great response to users and basing future development on user feedback
- Powerful nimbleness in adjusting what data Domo is displaying by user
- Need to develop a Beast mode developer so they can be managed outside of card development
- ETLs need to be a bit simpler to use
- I'd like to be able to filter off the same field twice (ie, store # > 100 AND store # 2, 4, & 6)
- Organizes spaces throughout the company as to where data can be found.
- Many cool visualization options for different types of data.
- Data Lineage.
- Connecting to some data sources can be tricky.
- There's not much data transformation available.
- Data sampling and formatting is not very flexible.
- DOMO users can drill into the data quickly with ease.
- It is very user-friendly for both the person creating cards and also for operators to use.
- It is accessible through the app on the phone.
- The new storytelling filtering reset button should reset both the filters on a card that is built and filters created elsewhere on the dashboard.
- Would like a way to incorporate financial statements in a different format vs. just the table view.
- Visualizations are the best part about Domo.
- Cloud access to everything.
- Layout is intuitive and easy to use!
- Cannot do SQL runs. This makes it heavily reliant on your engineering team to retrieve data.
- No customer support unless you pay more. It's pretty pricey.
- It's sooo expensive!
Domo works best when your data has access to API feeds, otherwise, good luck...
- The fact end users can ETL data in a drag and drop UI instead of code is extremely useful.
- Processing. You can run through millions to billions of data pretty quickly being that its all on AWS.
- Visualizations. There are what seems to be 100's of chart types to chose from which allows each question to be answered in the most insightful way.
- Mr. Roboto. A new feature which give you insight/anaylsis into your data and reports (cards)
- Dataset management. If you rename a field in the dataset it breaks everything you built
- Better tables, pivot tables. Sometimes you just need to build a table and have some basic "excel" functionality
