Business intelligence analytics provider Domo, Inc. (NASDAQ: DOMO) stock is pressing for another leg higher on the heels of impressive earnings results. The Company provides easy-to-use business intelligence analytics utilizing artificial intelligence (AI) to visualize organizational data analytics. It specifically provides insights and intelligence via mobile and cloud. As with most business intelligence (BI) platforms, the end goal is to enable better decision-making after the software/platform does the heavy data crunching. The Company focuses on small-medium-sized business (SMBs) but boasts an impressive client list including household Fortune 100 companies like Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN), Cisco Systems (NASDAQ: CSCO) and ESPN (NYSE: DIS) in addition to over 1,800 companies. The software enables companies to integrate almost any data source to one single source of truth platform providing complete visual data analytics conveniently on the cloud and accessible by mobile and remote. The Company is also partnered with Amazon and won the AWS Retail Competency status which will enable AWS customers to integrate the Domo platform. Additionally, it is also partnered with Snowflake (NASDAQ: SNOW) through its Partner Connect program. Prudent investors seeking a niche play in the BI segment can watch for opportunistic pullbacks.

Conference Call Takeaways
CEO Josh Jones set the tone, “We posted 25% billings growth, 23% subscription revenue growth, and 24% total revenue growth, with a 90% plus retention rate across both enterprise and corporate segments of our business in every geography.” He continued, “Now for those of you who know me, you know that I’m not generally known as an infinitely patient, unendingly understanding, not-demanding kind of guy. So, you can appreciated that it’s very hard to be patient long enough to wait for all the characterizations to catch up with reality. And obviously, I’m saying that a bit in jest, but with what we have consistently producing, I think it’s important to do some math that calls out how strong and consistent our performance has actually been.” CEO Jones went on a diatribe about the unfair characterization of the Company growth and ranted for most of his session. He spoke of a “tipping point” for Domo would come from an “instantly recognizable brand” that adopts Domo and is driving “fantastic” ROI on their investment. He went on inferring that the Company deserves more respect from analysts. He also outlines some performance awards the Company received in addition to the AWS certification which should be a future growth driver. The diatribe was not the typical data driven talk about strategy and growth drivers but more of a Jerry Maguire monologue about how the BI industry should operate and his expectations.
