Additionally, Domo’s priority in democratizing data has allowed even non-technical users to gather, analyze, and report on data with ease. This has supported thousands of businesses in their efforts to create a data-driven culture.
Project management and collaboration
Dundas offers users a number of collaboration tools, including notes, notifications, and data corrections. Users are able to ask questions, post comments, and follow up on specific tasks all within the platform. Additionally, automatic alerts can be set up to notify users of answers to questions or a data or system error occurs.
Domo provides all of the collaboration capabilities as Dundas but goes a step further. The platform features a suite of fully-integrated productivity and collaboration tools designed to break down silos and enhance productivity. These include:
- Real-time data alerts on desktop and mobile devices
- Built-in profiles and org charts
- Customizable action items and tasks
- Built-in messaging tool (Buzz)
- Report scheduler
While Dundas does feature a few security tools, including authentication API, multi-tenacity, and control and access management, the platform does not provide the end-to-end security of Domo.
The Domo Trust Program ensures the security and confidentiality of all customer data with a robust security framework. This framework includes:
- Multiple logical and physical security layers
- Access model
- Threat assessment
- Transport layer encryption
- Encryption for data at rest
- Extensive monitoring and logging of all users and systems
Users also have access to a number of self-service security tools designed to keep data secure yet accessible. These tools include SAML-based SSO, multi-factor authentication, IP address restrictions, and more. Regardless of the amount of data users are working with, they can easily control who has access to what, ensuring complete data protection and security. Domo’s data governance capabilities ensures users can set up persionalized data permissions (PDP), users roles, and more. Giving your team easy and flexible tools to ensure fine-grained control of your data access.
Said one Domo user who used the platform’s defined security roles to control user access: “We have a lot of sensitive information that not everyone should have access to. The metadata—the data about the data we put in Domo–is critical to maintaining compliance.”
The advantages of using Domo
What makes Domo stand out from Dundas and other data analytics platforms is its ease of use and adaptability. Both technical and non-technical users are able to gather and analyze data to meet a myriad of business goals—from improving marketing and sales techniques to eliminating labor-intensive business processes.
As more businesses focus on driving innovation and accelerating growth, it’s more important than ever for data to be democratized—allowing everyone, regardless of their technical skill— to access the data and information needed to drive this innovation.
Both beginners and experienced data scientists have access to a plethora of a library of data tools that strike the perfect balance between power and simplicity. Users can connect to thousands, if not millions, of data sources, analyze them, and create easily digestible reports that explain data in a way that no other tool can. Even with Domo’s extensive customization capabilities, users are never lost in a sea of data. They’re able to see exactly where, how, and why data is changing, allowing them to confidently navigate through large datasets and make data-informed decisions.
