A deeper look at Board

Board enables business users to analyze, simulate, plan, forecast, and create in one single platform. Board can help businesses automate processes and workflows, helping to increase productivity with efficiency and speed. And the combination of business intelligence (BI) and corporate performance management (CPM) helps organizations better monitor and manage their performance with KPIs. You can also tailor the platform’s capabilities to meet your needs.

However, it’s important to note that Board has a steep learning curve, limited support, and its export options lack high-quality graphics. And even though Board can combine BI with CPM to integrate large amounts of data from CRM systems and centralize that information into one single view, it’s also difficult for the platform to read large databases. 

When it comes to planning for the future, businesses can leverage Board’s budgeting and forecasting tools with no-coding predictive analytics helping to identify opportunities to act. Board works to bring together BI insights to fuel decision-making with the foresight and proactive approach of the CPM software, helping to make Board a reliable tool for mid-large size companies looking to improve their business outcomes.

What sets Domo apart from Board

What helps to set Domo apart is its ability to excel at proactively tracking KPIs and metrics, its options for data representation and visualization, its data connectivity with different sources, its collaboration ability, and its overall accessibility since you can access real-time insights from any browser or mobile device.

While Board’s BI platform can explore data, run effective analysis, build interactive dashboards, and create meaningful reports, it lacks the range of extensive capabilities that Domo has. Like with any platform, it also has its drawbacks. Because it lacks API, it limits incorporation with other business systems, and it takes more time to read large databases. Lastly, its ETL tools are not strong in comparison with other tools. Yes, you can drive better decision-making, gather forward-looking data insights, and align performance with corporate strategic objectives, but there are also drawbacks to consider. But Domo provides more advantages, including the quality of graphics, ETL capabilities, intuitiveness of the interface, and support offered.
