- ETLs - Domo has multiple ways to combine and compare data from different parts of the business, giving greater insight than a single report can.
- Visualizations - once you get your data ready, it has extreme flexibility and ease to quickly pull out the insights
- Integrations - pull data from the vast majority of top platforms as quickly as you can login
- The organization of pages and cards - it is often difficult to put cards where you want them, and to reorganize pages, and/or delete unneeded ones. Your view can quickly get out of control
- Organization of data flows and data sets - when looking at a dataset, it is difficult to navigate to the other datasets/transforms that go into it. While I can generally see where they are, it is not easy to traverse to where I need to work.
- Unspecified errors - while Domo often surprises by how much data and how many calculations it can do, quickly, and often without error, on the rare occasion it does error, I find myself wishing for more information than what is provided. Support answers, but is not extremely quick
- Very easy to build KPI cards
- Very easy to build pages for individual teams
- Easy to assign access to the right team members for appropriate cards
- Great support team
- Beast mode functionality could be improved with better training
- Formula number fields created in Domo should be able to be used as a summary number
- Currency fields from salesforce reports show up as text
- UI/UX is very slick
- Lots of options on the backend with robust tools to build dashboards from scratch
- Settings are persistent for each user
- Doesn't load very quickly - fairly bloaty
- Platform isn't fully baked and missing lots of features
- Has issues with stability
Review: "Domo: All in one BI/Analytics platform that will solve majority of your analytics use cases"
Domo is utilized to support almost every decision making in the organization, as we want to be a data-driven organization, everyone is encouraged to make decisions based on data. And Domo is the common place for us to have insights from data.
- Centralizing data/insights in a single platform. Domo supports hundreds of connectors for different types of data sources, and once the datasets are in Domo platform, they can be joined and available for slicing and dicing snappily.
- Self service. Once datasets are in Domo, users having access to that dataset will be able to easily build their own visualization for analysis and monitoring on their own. Users can also connect their own data (e.g. spreadsheets, .csv files) that can then further be joined with the available datasets.
- Collaboration. The possibility to have discussion *on the data* itself is amazing. Every single dashboard page and chart card has its own chat channel, where people can mention colleagues, attach images & files, both publicly (visible/readable by everyone having access) or privately (only specifically for mentioned users).
- Alerts, including near real time alerts. Domo allows alerts to be defined by any of the users having access, which can then be shared for others to reuse (subscribe to alert) as well. Domo delivers alerts via SMS, mobile app notification, in-browser notification and email. Powerful for executives who would like to be made aware when certain key metrics changes significantly.
- Insights on the go. Domo's mobile app is currently unparalleled by others in terms of insight consumption and basic exploration.
- Beautiful UI & UX.
- Able to handle large datasets. Our largest datasets are in the range of hundreds of millions records per dataset. In total we have more than 10 billions rows from hundreds of datasets.
- All in one platform. By pareto 80-20 principle, just by deploying and utilizing Domo well, you will get 80% of your data/insight use cases resolved.
- Support. Granted, most of our needs simply works without the need of support and issues rarely happens. However when it does happen, the response from their support team is painfully slow and it takes long to get through the layers of support teams when the issues are indeed advanced and can't be solved by their first layer of support.
- Data Catalog. Self service when ungoverned may result in mess. Domo offers great tools to display and manage datasets, pages, cards; however there is no proper Data Catalog that will allow us list and define datasets, pages, metrics, cards to help business users navigate the plethora of data and information in the platform.
- Real time / live queries. Currently Domo lives & breathes on datasets concept, whereby the snapshot of the data has to be imported into Domo first as datasets. While some other BI/Analytics tools works for live queries. These live query capabilities are needed for real time use cases as well as exploratory analyses. We're currently happy with "near" real time instead, whereby the datasets in Domo is refreshed every 15 minutes (the fastest frequency Domo currently supports).
- Centralizing data/insights from disparate variety of data sources.
- Collaboration between users, including across different departments.
- Self service analysis, slice & dice, for business users.
- Sharing of insights within the organization.
- Discussion on data itself. Every single page & card has dedicated chat channel.
- Insights consumption on the go. Domo's mobile app is best.
- Alerts on key metrics. Domo supports alerts into SMS, mobile app notifications, emails.
- Joining different datasets from various data sources allowing wider perspective on insights. And this is very user friendly for business users to do this themselves.
- Able to connect to hundreds types of data sources, from databases to web cloud apps.
- Handling large datasets. Our largest datasets are in the range of hundreds of million rows.
- Live queries analysis. There are many better tools for this purpose, Domo currently requires import of data first before analysis can be done.
- Ad-hoc exploratory analysis where dataset needed is not yet fixed/clear.
- Navigating plethora of data. Domo needs to come up with Data Catalog as a feature.
- Advanced visualizations.
- DOMO has a very simple and intuitive interface that allows user without much experience to build and interact with cards.
- DOMO provides a platform for managing all BI, reporting, data analysis, etc. functions, from ETL to charts to social. This allows users to work easily within a single environment, improving adoption, learning curves, and value.
- DOMO has a great ETL tool called Magic that allows users with no SQL skills to join and manipulate data in a variety of ways, using drag and drop methodologies and a simple interface. The value is immense because it means users don't have to rely on IT programmers to prepare their data and get the answers they need.
- DOMO lacks more advanced Admin functions for managing data sets, calculations, users, etc.
- DOMO needs to improve their data upload application, used to pull data from on prem data sources and upload to the DOMO cloud. It lacks functions to manage a large number of jobs and needs a better scheduling tool.
- DOMO has a mobile app, that is pretty good, but certain types of cards and features are not supported in the app. This creates extra work and is a drag on the user experience.
DOMO does not work for organizations who simply want a few basic reports that can be automated as it does not leverage DOMO's strengths and unique features.
- Domo handles the ETL process with smooth efficiency
- Visualization of data
- Clean UI
- Content sharing; extracting data into automated emails
- Integrated statistical analysis; Domo has hooks to R but it would be nice to have more of what R provides integrated into Domo
- Ease of use. As a tool it's comfortable, approachable and forgiving. If you have a tool that end users can dive into without fear, and create and think and collaborate, without training, without hand-holding, you quickly realize how rare and important that is. You'll need more licenses than you think because of how fast user adoption is.
- Speed of implementation. You can go from 0-60 faster than a Tesla. We were up and running in weeks, with live working dashboards sourced from a mixture of external and internal data sets.
- Sharing and Collaboration. In addition to getting internal departments to collaborate and share insights around their data, we quickly realized how easy it would be to provide analytics to our customers and partners. Everything is in place to setup external secure analytics portals to outside parties, and it's a game changer.
- Data quality. Remember those days of building exception reports to call out data issues that no one wants to take ownership of? With Domo I ended up with crowd sourced data quality that grew organically from users finding issues, and building cards to highlight those issues. A simple alert to the manager/owner of that upstream process, or to the users names showing up in relation to the issue, have not only helped us shine a light on significant issues, but has resulted in users being aware of the downstream impacts and in some cases enables them to manage their own data quality. Makes for a great segue into those data governance initiatives when you have dashboards showing how dirty or clean your data is.
- It would be helpful if we could filter (using the page analyzer) for the report side variables (beast mode calculations). But it's probably in the works.
- Being able to use variables in card titles would be useful when we're building cards and dashboards that are dependent on row level security (PDP).
- Debugging Beast Mode calculations would be super helpful, when you're trying to figure out what's wrong with your statement.
- Report Scheduling was missing, but it's getting released to everyone in the next week or so.
- Domo allows you to analyze data in different views to tell a complete story.
- Domo allows users to share reports directly in presentations and manipulate data in real time.
- Domo allows collaboration on data and building cards between team members which is helpful in a global organization.
- The back end of getting the data into the tool can be a bit complex... its not as user friendly for non-technical users.
- Combining multiple databases together into singular data sets that can be used for visualizations.
- Store large amounts of data in ways that cannot be done within our databases due to the snapshot like functionality.
- Automate reports so you can set and forget it. Saving you time from having to rebuild a report every few days if it's an ongoing thing.
- Filters that support aggregations is the #1 issue I have
- There are tons of connectors built for applications from Microsoft Access to social media accounts. You can pretty much connect anything to Domo via a connector or ODBC connection.
- Easy for users to find the data they are looking for. From being able to create custom pages for departments/users to search functionality, Domo makes it super easy to find the data you are looking for.
- Creating the 'cards' is easy. Once a dataset is created, visualizing your data is drag and drop.
- The workbench tool is great but can be quirky when copying an SQL query that created an SQL Developer. It seems to find invalid characters when there aren't any.
- It lacks built-in reports that can be used to manage the datasets and cards within Domo.
- Lots of connectors that are great, but the ones for Oracle and Access don't seem to work the best. An ODBC connection is the best way to connect those to Domo.
- non-tech savvy user friendly
- easy drag and drop feature
- various available data connectors
- task management feature, i.e. for assigning tasks
- good data access privilege
- increases site response time, since the site takes time to load
- Domo imports data-sets from the connector and treats it like CSV format, which gives us problems on importing irregular data types (e.g. fields with JSON format)
- more tutorials and how tos, especially on data-set management best practices
- Data visualization, with customized graphs & charts
- Data manipulation, combining multiple data sources & cleaning up
- Live data analysis, updating charts using live data
- Collects and combines data from multiple sources and automatically collects into master tables to build visualizations and gather insights
- Excellent support center, support staff, and training tools
- Not for the faint of heart! Even if someone else implements for you and builds out initial data tables, you'll likely need SQL skills to build complex visualizations or to make any changes to your data structure
- Steep learning curve - not everything in the card editor (used for editing graphs & data visualizations) is intuitively located
- 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...
- Ease of use. Unlike many other business intelligence tools, Domo can be set up and used by pretty much anyone.
- Beautiful reports. Domo creates some very striking reports and charts that are suitable for daily use as well as customer and board presentations.
- It can combine data from disparate data sources. The tool has the ability to merge reports from different sources into one chart at a fraction of the time that it would normally take.
- There are a number of preloaded designs for charts and data sources that can help you hit the ground running.
- The Domo App Store with connected applications could use some work. The pre-made reports can sometimes use a lot of work. This is not a Domo problem, per se, since the connected applications create the reports, but it does impact using Domo.
- The program will automatically assign your values to dependent or independent datasets. These can sometimes cause problems when trying to create a graph.
- Support is of little help when it comes to any data source outside of Domo.
- Executive reporting across a vertical org structure
- Merging data across platforms
- Companies with a business intelligence or data analytics team who want to present data
One of the most important strategic assets of Colony American Finance is data and the ability to access, integrate, cleanse, conform and manage it across all technology platforms to empower business users, management, clients, customers and investors with timely, accurate and actionable information.
As a company fully leveraging cloud-based technology, the team at Colony American Finance needed a comprehensive enterprise platform to acquire, integrate, disseminate and synthesize data points from platforms like Salesforce, Facebook, Pardot, Twitter, LinkedIn, Zillow and other critical business and marketing applications. With the right tools Colony American Finance can provide better financial solutions to its customers.
- Time to market, low total cost of ownership, ROI achieved in months, not years
- DOMO Data Connectors, Quick Start Cards allow for rapid deployment and low maintenance footprint
- Fully mobile enabled, secure access 24x7x365 with proactive alerting capability
- Ability to extend platform with Predictive Analytics and Machine Learning
- WYSWIG editor for row/columnar atomic level reporting
- Report scheduler for automated email distribution of reports
- Through key fields, we were able to connect data from Salesforce to our product database (DB) giving us a clearer picture into service utilization once prospects became customers.
- We were able to recreate hard to read Salesforce reports into good visualizations and then dynamically slice and dice the data to get deeper insights.
- Creating custom calculation fields (Beastmode Calculations) were really helpful in transforming data in a useful way — such as creating bucket or tier fields from revenue, units sold, company size.
- Beastmode Calculations are helpful, but require some SQL-like knowledge (it's their own syntax), so you need some technical proficiency on that end. Would be great if it had more of a builder or wizard.
- Some re-ordering can be difficult when doing visualizations with discrete stages. For instance, creating a Funnel visualization required creating a custom calculation to re-label the existing Status (Anonymous, Lead, MQL, SQL, SAL, Qualified, etc) to starting with a numeric value to get the right order (1-Anon, 2-Lead, 3-MQL etc.).
- Great Salesforce connector with ability to pull in standard and custom objects
- Responsive to feedback on future connectors and building out new functionality
- ETL capabilities are outstanding for simple point and click interface, very quick turnaround for building complex datasets
- Visualizations could be better in terms of their breadth of what types of visualizations are available
- The "collection" to answer a question mindset is not bad, but a step away from traditional dashboards and limits on some customization
- More options than just a powerpoint send out in terms of export.
- Pulling in data from disparate data sources
- Transforming the data into a usable format
- Easily building out visualizations
- Need better dashboard access for non-licensed users
- Better connectors to different data sources
- Easier app building
- Data Visualization - Domo makes it easy to test different formats of your data until you can find the visualization you are looking for.
- Drill Down - The data is all connected, so you are able to drill down for greater detail, filter, and otherwise slice the data as needed.
- Simple, but complex - With basic users the system is intuitive enough to figure out what you need the majority of the time, but for advanced users the possiblity with scripting is endless.
- Technical Expertise - If you don't have a solid technical/database foundation it can be hard to understand what is possible.
- Buried Features - There are some great features that are hard to find unless you pay more for advanced training.
- Slow Support - Support is often slow.
- Support - Often slow to get things worked out if it is more than a simple fix.
- Domo provides Cloud services for business in a way that takes away the need for someone with IT experience to manage.
- It allows management from many users.
- It allows collaboration within the context of where changes need to be made. For example right along side content within an app.
- The advertising of the company has put out some offensive billboards that weren't tasteful.
- A more concise explanation of the data and solutions the company offers.
- Domo is good at categorizing data sources into common pages, and cards, which can be shared with specific users or groups of users. This keeps data secure, but also accessible for those that need it.
- Domo cards are easy to copy and manipulate. For instance if a card is normally viewed as a weekly view by day, the viewer of the card can easily change the data to show the last year grouped by quarter instead.
- Since Domo can keep tons of historical data, we use it to correlate business decisions and study trends.
- Domo has a robust Beast Mode calculator, which has been augmented several times in the past year. I wish they would keep one design and stick with it.
- Domo should have a way of sharing colors between common cards. For instance we have users from different verticals mapped on cards, and the verticals color changes depending on the card. I'd like to keep the colors the same.
- Domo is user friendly, I just wish there were an easier way for us to import data. This may be due to process more than the limitations of Domo though.
1) Aggregate and warehouse disparate data sources from multiple systems as well as external data sets.
2) DOMO provides the tools to transform the data and join the data sources together for side-by-side comparison and a deeper look at the information.
3) Managers use the data to make data-driven decisions and keep operations on track and running well.
- DOMO's data output, or cards as their are known, enable for very clear visualizations of information. A manager can into DOMO and quickly see what's going well and what's needs some additional focus.
- DOMO's data ETL tools are very easy to use. They've got one for hardcore SQL users as well as GUI tools which enable drag-and-drop SQL programming. No matter your level of expertise, both tools are very useful in their own right.
- DOMO's data warehousing and organization system is concise and easy to use. Everything your company needs can be stored and accessed in one location.
- DOMO employs data connectors which are pre-built connections that allow companies to quickly connecting to existing data sources such as Quickbooks, Facebook, Box, Salesforce, and many more.
- We were early adopters of DOMO, and they have made some amazing strides forward since our implementation.
- DOMO is always open to suggestions for improvement. For example, we would like to have a Census data connector to complement the Bureau of Labor Statistics connector that they already have. They put it into the development queue for us.
- I would like to see DOMO build more DOMO Apps. Currently, these are add-ons to existing accounts, but I think they should be offered as part of the basic platform. Apps enable users to create a picture of multiple data points as they flow together, for example. They are kind of a like a big graphical report or even an infographic that is fully customized to the users' needs.
There are few limitations that we have encountered. If you have a creative mind, you could likely find a useful application of Domo in any environment as it's not limited to any particular industry. If you've got lots of data and need to make some sense of it all, Domo is a great platform to do so.
- Easy to understand graphics
- Highly customizable
- Visually appealing
- Easy to communicate with others from within the tool
- I wish there were Quickstart options for a few more common platforms, like Pinterest.
