Domo High 5: Our Highlights from Domopalooza 2018

by | Mar 28, 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 new gover­nance features allow­ing you to manage your datasets, beast modes and have greater insights to your data quality are going to incred­i­bly helpful as clients continue to expand how Domo is enabling their busi­ness.

3. Break Out Sessions

Steve Gustafson and Jim Koenig, Direc­tor of Busi­ness Intel­li­gence, lead a break­out speak­ing about reach­ing full data poten­tial through inno­va­tion custom apps and produc­tiv­ity exten­sions. 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.

And don’t forget, #Space­ManLovesYou!
