Overall Satisfaction with Domo

I used Domo as part of consultancy group. Our customer had the data allocated in Domo, so we used the platform for quick data analysis and for data extraction as well. Domo was being used among all the consultants in our group allocated to this project. We were working to solve problems in the transporation industry with Domo, the company in charge of the data had millions of truck trips in their database.
  • Connectivity: Domo can easily connect to most databases and data sources. They have a team that would help with your data connection, in case you need it.
  • Speed: In comparison to other tools, Domo is reasonably fast. Of course, this will depend on a lot of things: the amount of data you are working on and your internet speed, since Domo is cloud based.
  • User friendly: Domo is fairly easy to use. And you can access most of the data you want easily.
  • Mobile: Domo is a great tool for mobile purposes. Their apps for data visualization are top notch!
  • Access to all parts of the data: We needed to use SQL for certain types of queries, and that was a pain point since one a few consultants were proficient in SQL. It would have been awesome if all the data was accessible with just a few clicks.
  • Machine learning: They are still a lit bit behind on integrating Machine Learning and AI models easily in their tool.
  • Not for everyone: your company might already have another data visualization being used, so using another one might be a burden in terms of cost and making employees learn a new tool.
Domo is more suited for creating visualizations for executives, and usually they tend to be high level data visualizations.
In this sense, it is not the most powerful tools for deep dive analysis, but it is intuitive and fast. Especially if your end users will access your dashboards using a mobile phone.
Domo is usually pretty decent with connectivity, it accepts the most common data sources and tend to work well with bigger data sets. As an end-user, it seemed that all the data sources were merged well, but in some cases we had to write SQL to get the connections we needed.
The data set I used was being updated frequently, I'd say at least every 30 minutes. And the tool handled all the updates very well.
Their mobile app is very easy and intuitive for every audience of your visualizations or dashboards. It was fairly easy to create dashboards and share them different ways with the team. The formatting was easy and nice, but somewhat limited since the tool is geared more towards executives. You don't have all the formatting capabilities as other tools.
Well suited:
Domo is well suited if your company is trying to be more data-centric and it is pushing this idea to executive levels. Domo apps make easy for executives to visualize and have the information needed on-the-go.
I'd also argue that it is suitable for smaller companies trying to use a single tool for data analysis.

Less appropriate:
If you are trying to have a versatile and powerful tool for data analysis and analytics. Domo doesn't include more sophisticated data science models, or the robust visualizations of Power BI. Also, I'd argue that is not very appropriate for big organizations, since they tend to go to the bigger names (Microsoft or Tableau).
