Unlock Curiosity to Empower Your Organization with Domo

What killed the cat? When I was growing up I’d occasionally hear the phrase “curiosity killed the cat” when I’d ask too many questions.  I haven’t heard that phrase in a long time, and I’m pretty sure chasing that mouse into the street is what killed the cat.  But isn’t it strange that there is […]

Driving Data

Stuck In Rush Hour A few days ago I was driving home from Atlanta during rush hour and my phone died.  All I could see in front of me were brake lights and red lights.  Not a huge deal, I knew where I wanted to go and I knew how to get there.  But since […]

Intelligent Resilience

Time Travel With Your Data – No Flux Capacitor Required

Have you ever said something like “I wish I could go back when…” maybe it was to re-live an awesome vacation or some funny event.  But, if you work with data you’ve probably said that same thing, but not for nearly as pleasant circumstances.  Maybe you’ve said it because the data you’ve been importing since […]

Finding Answers In Your Data Should Not Be a Chore

I hate looking for clothes to wear, especially if I’m in a hurry.  Sometimes life gets crazy and my favorite shirt may still be in the dryer, or I can’t find the match to a sock I already have in my hand.   Something easy can turn into a chore very quickly when things aren’t organized. […]

The Truth is Out There, Let Domo Certify It

What is the Truth?

Manage by Exception – Setting up an Alert in Domo

Let’s be honest, we all get them. Some come from our team members, some we even set up ourselves, but after a while, they are ignored and turn to noise. What am I talking about?
