SILICON SLOPES, UTAH — July 18, 2014 — Domo, a software-as-a-service venture redefining the business intelligence market and transforming the way business is managed, today announced that it has been named an AlwaysOn Global 250 winner.

Inclusion in the AlwaysOn Global 250 signifies leadership amongst peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players in the Global Silicon Valley.

Domo and the AlwaysOn Global 250 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn’s 12th annual Innovation Summit at the Computer History Museum July 29-30, 2014. Domo founder and CEO Josh James and Zetta Venture Partners’ Mark Gorenberg will help kick off the Summit with a conversation about the current state of the big data and the analytics boom. Gorenberg was an early investor in Domo and also in Omniture, the web-analytics powerhouse James co-founded in 1996, took public in 2006 and sold to Adobe for $1.8B in 2009.
