Domo is a business intelligence tool that runs on Domo’s Business Cloud platform. The tool is designed to consolidate an organization’s data into one easy-to-use, self-service solution for all business roles, so anyone can access the data they need and make better decisions. This confident branding is backed up by Domo’s cult following of customers, also known as ‘domosapiens’, who collectively praise Domo’s offering.

According to Founder and CEO Josh James, “Domo is by far the largest analytics cloud platform, storing 100 trillion rows of data from all its customers in the last 12 months.” That equates to 25 petabytes of data.

User & Use Cases

Domo has a generally even distribution of customers using it for dashboards, enterprise reporting, ad hoc queries and basic data analysis. This is no surprise as Domo markets itself as a self-service tool for all users to explore their data and find insights.

A much smaller number of users engage in financial consolidation, budgeting and planning, and advanced analytics. Domo also has nearly twice the average product penetration rate among its customers who are primarily small and medium-sized companies.

Compared to the average, a higher percentage of Domo users use the tool to view data, explore and analyze, navigate, and model and enrich. This speaks to Domo’s multi-purpose design and focus on ease of use. It is interesting to see such a high future interest in Domo for the advanced analysis use case, maybe showing Domo customers are maturing the analyses in their applications from descriptive to predictive.

The tool most often evaluated in competition with Domo is Tableau. It is also frequently evaluated in comparison with Power BI, Qlik Sense and MicroStrategy.

Across all three of its peer groups, more Domo customers say they would recommend the product than most customers using other products.
The BI Survey 17
Domo is the top-ranked vendor for the ‘Cloud BI’ KPI in each of its peer groups. The vendor has been dedicated to a cloud-first approach from the beginning. Operating in the cloud enables Domo to scale resources to meet customer needs and manage the infrastructure and redundancy of each customer’s instance. The product runs on the Business Cloud platform, so all Domo customers automatically use Domo in the cloud. Domo has deployments on both private and public clouds, such as Amazon and Azure. It further offers hybrid cloud solutions for customers that need to address security concerns or a strict regulatory requirement.
The BI Survey 17
It‘s exceeded all my expectations. I‘ve been in BI for 20 years, and grew up with BOBJ, Microstrategy, Brio, Cognos, etc. I‘ve used Tableau, Qlik, Looker and others, and Domo I‘ve never seen results with end users like I have with this tool. It‘s exactly what our organization needed.
Head of business department, Financial services, 100-2.500 employees
Great application that has dramatically improved our staff‘s ability to understand our clients‘ use of our services. Wonderfully easy-to-use with short learning curve for end-users.
CIO, Services, 100-2.500 employees
Domo scores a perfect 10.0 for operational BI. A large number of Domo customers derive insights from data coming directly out of production systems, or real-time data.
