Featured Review
Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"We find the ease of using the solution valuable.""The solution is highly stable.""In general, Domo is very powerful and very easy to use, relatively speaking.""The dashboard is the most valuable feature and allows for customization to create and share reports.""We have found securing data valuable because it allows us to provide information without identifying individuals.""The best feature of Domo is that it's completely on the cloud. I also like that you can handle data end-to-end without having to depend on multiple tools. Another specific feature I like the most about Domo is Magic ETL because, through it, you can do all your expression, transformation, and loading activities very smoothly. The tool also follows the lineage concept, so you can understand what kind of transformations took place on a particular data set. You can find end-to-end data from the source until it has become the final output or the final data set. Whatever happened to a particular data set, you can understand it through the Domo lineage, and that isn't possible in most of the tools available in the market, but in Domo, that's available. The tool is also solid and because it's on the cloud, it uses multiple data engineering in the backend and multiple algorithms in the back, behind the scenes, resulting in a great performance. For example, if an end user such as the CEO or COO opens a report or the dashboard and it takes more than ten seconds, the end user won't be interested in looking at that report or dashboard, but Domo enables better performance and there's usually no performance issues from that tool.""The most valuable feature currently is the self-service BI availability in Domo. I would say the data file fabric solutions where the users themselves are responsible for generating their own reports.""The dashboarding itself was pretty easy. So both the front and the back end were positive in this case."

"From a developer's perspective, the way the functionality's being handled is great.""It's quite effortless to navigate through various applications and review their updated data in real-time.""Looker allows you to generate the most optimal SQL queries in a DC through UI actions. We had signed a contract with Google Cloud to use BigQuery. That was the primary reason we adopted Looker. It works better with BigQuery than any other BI platform. We also like how this tool was developed. It was designed with an eye toward microservices architecture.""I would rate the stability a ten out of ten. I didn't face any issues with stability.""The product is easy to use.""We can centralize all our data models.""It is a pretty stable solution because it is a cloud-based product.""The stability of Looker has been good since I have been using it. However, it depends on what components are being used."

More Looker Pros →

"They should include service-based reporting features.""One of the improvements that could be made is related to improved storage options.""I would like to see better data intake.""It is expensive.""It is expensive.""There's a learning curve before you can get used to the solution.""Domo or any other BI tool has room for improvement, in particular, in the calculations. User-guided material isn't available for calculations. The tool, though user-friendly, could also be more customizable, especially when you're building a dashboard. Data integration could also be improved in Domo because even if the tool connects to multiple data sources, some hiccups still arise and need to be addressed.""There were very few cases on some of the tables, the data tables, where I wish there was an additional feature or two."

More Domo Cons →

"Looker doesn't connect to Excel, which is a huge disappointment because a lot of data is presented in Excel. Also, it can't consume data directly from REST APIs, which is necessary. Looker needs to expand its horizons when it comes to data sources. The inability to connect to different data sources is hampering our use cases. Currently, it only has an ODBC connection that connects to a database. It needs to connect to other data sources, such as Excel, APIs, and different platforms.""It needs to be more user-friendly.""The product does not have documented material.""The main area of concern in Looker is probably related to blending the data from the different sources, including the data present internally in the company and on the cloud.""Integrations with other BI tools could be better.""The integration with different databases must be improved.""Stability needs improvement."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "It started out at about $600 a seat. However, then as we started to grow, it scaled that down to about $330 or 3$50 a seat, if I'm not mistaken."
  • "Domo has more than one licensing model. You can choose between the yearly subscription and the per-user licensing model. The tool is flexible in terms of licensing. As for the cost, Domo is an end-to-end BI tool so its pricing is a little higher than other players in the market, for example, non end-to-end BI tools such as OBIEE and Tableau specific only for business intelligence and presenting data to the end users, unlike Domo which handles everything. You want to get Domo as an integration tool, an ETL tool, etc. As the tool is end-to-end, its cost is always going to be a little higher than other BI tools, but it's worth paying because you won't have to spend extra for other activities. After all, Domo can do those activities."
  • "I think it is reasonable."
  • "The pricing differs from customer to customer, depending on the package."
  • "The solution is expensive compared to one of its competitors."

  • "Looker is expensive and could be made better by reducing it."
  • "It's not cheap, but it's not expensive for big companies."
  • "The price of Looker usually depends on the solution's provider, but it is usually cheaper than the other products in the market. Looker is offered at different prices for different companies."
  • "It is cheap."
