I’ve worked in the analytics/BI space for over a decade now, and let me tell ya: the challenges surrounding collection, aggregation, analysis and dissemination of data are not new. As technology for measuring performance has improved and storage has become cheaper, companies are doing a better job of collection and aggregation, which in turn has …

Retail Data Management with Domo

Whether a retailer wants to open a new location, start a new product line or tweak a supply chain—or make any changes to her business at all—she first needs the right data. But not all business professionals have access to the data they need. As we see in Domo’s “The Big BI Disappointment” survey, 93% …

The Uncanny Link Between Apple’s Garage Band and Business Intelligence

The Music—And the Drummer Back when I was 14, a friend of mine showed me how to string three chords together to play “Wild Thing” on the guitar. Soon after that life-altering experience I dropped $40 on a cheap, vintage hollow body with a faded sunburst finish, borrowed a book of sheet music for Metallica’s …

Answers Before Questions

Back when handheld GPS units were relatively new, I purchased one for hiking. I was really looking forward to using it to discover some new backpacking routes in the Uintas.

I was out on the driving range trying (and failing) to fix a slice on my drive some time ago. There was only one other person out there, and as expected, we started talking about work in between strokes. I’m a marketer at Domo, and he was a manager at a shipping company and a …

Your New Year’s diet resolution doesn’t look so good when you still have three-quarters of a cheesecake and half a case of egg nog in the fridge three days after your New Year’s Eve party. You may as well post on your Facebook wall, “I’m just waiting to digest what happened on Christmas and New …

Dan Roden
Dan Roden
Director of Marketing Experience

Thanksgiving is largely a food holiday. At the Roden household, we always mix in shooting guns and throwing the Nerf football on the street.

VP Community Platform

I like old school. Sometimes. Cars, clothes, shoes, art…they can all be cool with a throwback style. But business intelligence, and dashboards in particular, is a different story.
