Domo Review
The distribution of visualizations via a web portal is valuable but refreshing the data was unstable.

1,175

Valuable Features:

Distribution of visualizations via a web portal is valuable, but really is basic table stakes.  If you are looking for a true analytical tool, skip Domo.  

Improvements to My Organization:

It has not helped materially. If anything it has hurt, since a better solution would have sped up the dissemination of valuable information in a more actionable manner.

Room for Improvement:

  1. Allow visualizations to stay locked in place relative to each other, rather than shuffling around based on screen size
  2. More connectors
  3. Better, more responsive tech support and customer service
  4. Better visualization creation tools
  5. More control over both primary and secondary axes
  6. More control over each series' type (line, column, etc.)
  7. Allow users to trigger a data refresh
  8. Faster speed of rendering during visualization creation

Use of Solution:

I used it for about four months.

Stability Issues:

Yes. refreshing the data was unstable and would periodically stop working for weeks.

Scalability Issues:

We did not try to scale to any meaningful level.

Customer Service:

Poor as data refresh issues took weeks too resolve and there was minimal communication with my team.

Technical Support:

Poor as data refresh issues took weeks too resolve.

Previous Solutions:

Yes, I have used Excel, SSRS and Tableau for BI deployments and would do so again before ever deploying Domo. The sales team sold a non-technical executive on the concept of being able to chat about the data, which is a useless, gimmicky feature at best, since now your employees have to look an additional place besides email and IM for prior threads.

ROI:

Significantly negative. It is a very expensive product with a lot of problems and limitations. I would strongly advise anyone to avoid it.

Other Advice:

You should choose something else, like Tableau, BIME, SSRS, or even Excel.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

I've been curious to know how much Domo is actually backing up their heavy, and somewhat mysterious, marketing hype. Sounds like they're not at all! Thanks for the forthright review Scott!
