Auckland based Stellar Consulting Group has become the first New Zealand partner of US company Domo, a provider of cloud-based business intelligence, data analytics and collaboration tools.
Stellar Consulting general manager, Nicholas Glanfield, described Domo as a complete analytics platform that is incredibly user-friendly.
“Domo comes with 450 built-in connectors so you can easily import data from sources such as accounting software, CRM systems and social media accounts,” Glanfield said. “It can access databases, spreadsheets, or just about any type of data you can imagine.”
Stellar Consulting claims to have New Zealand’s largest team of independent business intelligence and data analytics consultants. it has offices in Auckland, Wellington and Taurang and counts Toyota, Vodafone, Air New Zealand and the Inland Revenue among its customers.
Domo was founded in 2010 by Josh James, under the name Shacho. James also co-founded web analytics software company Omniture in 1996. He took that company public in 2006 and in 2009 sold it to Adobe for $US1.8b.
Since its foundation Domo has raised over $US700m in venture capital. The company claims to have more than 1000 customers including, Mastercard, eBay, National Geographic.
Gartner placed Domo in the ‘niche’ sector of its 2017 Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms.
It said: “The company’s seasoned management team and marketing and sales efforts, funded by a large venture capital reserve, have resulted a high level of awareness,” and that the company had been “able to expand its customer base and grow deployments in an increasingly crowded and price-sensitive market, with positive execution on a number of measures related to customer experience.“
Forrester has Domo in the “Stong Performers” segment of its Forrester Wave: Enterprise BI Platforms With Majority Cloud Deployments, Q3 2017.
It described the company as being “somewhat US-centric,” saying: “Domo remains in catch-up mode with regard to a number of enterprise capabilities, particularly in administration. Other areas for development include advanced analytics, geospatial, and natural language capabilities; customer feedback suggests room for improvement in help-desk support.
