With Domo in place, key members of your organization are given the unique ability to properly assess and interpret data to drive real business results. At Big Squid, our team of Domo certified business consultants have assisted hundreds of businesses in implementing Domo successfully, allowing them to discover those actionable insights, and make vital business decisions accordingly.

What does it take to be a Domo business consultant, and how can they help you achieve your particular business goals? Let’s answer these questions by delving into the daily efforts of a business consultant.

First, no two days on the job are the same, but there are a few unifying elements in bringing an engagement into full fruition—strategizing solutions, collaborating with team members, and communicating challenges, risk and opportunities to the client.

The primary goal of each and every engagement is to identify key business questions, and to develop a solution and strategy to uncover business insights that drive action.

In order to do this, a Domo business consultant will begin by helping you hone in on what defines success for you, be it an increase in financial performance, minimizing funding to sources with less ROI, increasing retention rate, etc.

Next, he or she will work with you to determine what you want to focus your efforts on, and to clearly define the complete scope of your project within your budgeted timeframe. The consultant will also discuss the potential roadblocks or obstacles involved, and will make all team members aware, so you, the customer, can make an informed decision about how to proceed. Based on this information, you and your consultant will create action plans for mitigating these obstacles.

With the project guidelines in place, your business consultant will communicate with you on a regular and ongoing basis regarding status, scoping, planning, and delegation, and will also conduct workshops to walk you through the ins and outs of the Domo platform, so you can utilize it to its full advantage. Maintaining this line of communication is essential for keeping the project on track, and achieving your goals by the targeted completion dates.

To be a successful and dependable Domo business consultant, it takes teamwork, organization, and time management. Are you ready to start visualizing your data, and setting your business on the path to success? Let Big Squid’s seasoned business consultants help you with your Domo implementation today and empower your team with the information to transform business insights into actions.
