Analyst(s): Cindi Howson, Rita Sallam , Josh Parenteau


Domo's cloud-based dashboard product, launched in April 2015, offers an appealing UI, alerts based on key performance indicators and mobile support. Business intelligence leaders should assess it as an easily deployed management tool but know that it lacks reporting and discovery features.

Impacts and Recommendations

  • Domo's launch, in April 2015, of a cloud-based, visual dashboard product gives BI and analytics leaders another option for rapid deployment, aided by its extensive range of prebuilt connectors to cloud-based data sources and applications
  • Domo has received over $450 million in venture capital funding, allowing it to step up its marketing and product development efforts, which will force BI and analytics leaders to respond to user requests to support its offering
  • Domo's KPI-based alerting, collaboration and mobile capabilities enable executives to improve management alignment and take a top-down approach to BI
  • The implications of Domo's cloud-only approach, in which all data — whether from on-premises sources or cloud applications — must reside in its cloud for visualization and analysis, demand consideration by BI and analytics leaders with primarily on-premises data sources
