Domo High 5: Our Highlights from Domopalooza 2018
What an exciting year for the Search Discovery and Domo partnership and what another awesome event at Domopalooza 2018! For the fourth year in a row, we’ve participated in Domo’s user conference, this year as the first ever (and sole) Diamond Sponsor.
With a small army of 20 talented team members representing all parts of the company, we’ve been preparing for months for our four speaking sessions, countless client meetings, Zen Lounge sponsorship, Partner video, booth theme and design, and our overall stellar presence throughout the entire conference.
SDI’s Spaceman even made several surprise appearances throughout the conference and created almost as much buzz as the team members wearing their snazzy red sweaters!
Here are some of the show highlights for us!
1: Partner Summit
Pre-conference had a designated Partner Summit for, you guessed it, Domo’s partners. Designed for partners to congregate and discuss the go-to-market strategy for the upcoming year, it’s always energizing to feel and hear the buzz about the future of the product.
Steve Gustafson, our Chief Operating Officer, spoke to the entire sales team on how we are supporting Domo growth across the enterprise. At the end of Partner Summit, Domo recognized Search Discovery with the Partner of the Year Award. We’re honored!
2: General Sessions
A couple things happened on the main stage that we’re excited about.
Mike Gustafson, our President, presented with client Paul Elliot, President of Consumer Brands at Brandmuscle, about how Domo is enabling BrandMuscle’s ongoing digital transformation. Domo is enabling them to leverage data to create a competitive advantage for them and their clients as they provide precision integrated digital marketing services to major national brands.
Domo announced over 20 (YES, 20!) new products and features to their business operating system.
SDI is excited to start using these new features as they become available. We’re ready to work with our clients to leverage all of the new capabilities whether its the predictive capabilities, visualization options, or the enhanced ability for our clients to govern their instances (all very cool!).

The packed audience learned about five custom solutions SDI created on behalf of their clients this year and included a guest appearance from our client, Wade Hoffman, Analytics Manager at Carter Lumber.
4. Partner Pavilion:
The Partner Pavilion was the place to be for all the latest innovations and hands-on experience at the Brilliance Bar and Domo booth. Did you come see us?
Conversations at our main booth were unique and spanned across the enterprise as we helped clients and potential Domo users with business challenges. Spanning across all industries and roles, we learned insights from prior implementations and discussed our innovative solutions utilizing the Domo platform. Thanks for stopping by!
Our App Development Team featured eight of their Productivity Extensions: custom solutions developed in the past year using the Domo platform to solve specific client problems. Attendees provided positive feedback and on many occasions requested the SDI team to develop a similar custom app to help them solve a business challenge that exists today.
What a killer team!
5. Client Engagement:
SDI engaged existing and potential clients through private meetings and dinners, to deepen the relationships and glean specific opportunities where we can partner to leverage Domo to positively impact the client’s business. In conjunction with the break out sessions, SDI’s clients walked away with a stronger professional network, greater understanding of where and how to invest in the Domo solution, and insight into Search Discovery’s expertise and service offerings.
There’s a lot of excitement across Search Discovery about the future of Domo: from improved AI capabilities to governance to dataset/beast mode management to card building enhancements. Reach out on how we can work together to enhance these features and truly make Domo the operating system that allows you to run your entire business on your phone.
