Domo Welcomes Silicon Valley Veteran Bruce Felt as Chief Financial Officer

Former SuccessFactors CFO Joins Domo; Helps Position Company for Growth

SILICON SLOPES, UT--(Marketwired - August 21, 2014) - Domo, a software-as-a-service (SaaS) venture started by Omniture co-founder and former CEO Josh James to redefine the business intelligence (BI) market, today announced the appointment of Bruce Felt as Chief Financial Officer (CFO).

Mr. Felt brings more than 25 years of experience in the financial operations and management of high technology companies to Domo. For almost six years, Felt was CFO of SuccessFactors, where he guided the company through a public offering, six acquisitions and the $3.4 billion sale of the business to SAP. He has served as CFO for LANDesk Software, Auction.com as well as Qualix Group, where he led its public offering and merger into Legato Systems, which was later acquired by EMC. He also founded and served as CFO and head of sales for Renaissance Software.

"As Domo continues to accelerate at breakneck speed, it's critical that we maintain operational strength and excellence," said Josh James, Domo founder and CEO. "Bruce has a tremendous track record in optimizing all aspects of financial operations to support fast-growth businesses. To have a CFO with such significant SaaS experience is a huge plus. I am excited to have Bruce partner with me and my team as we continue to launch an entirely new form of enterprise software designed to serve CEOs, CFOs, CMOs and other managers across the entire business. For too long, these executives have had reams of data and no ability to extract value from it."

"Domo has the potential to be one of the most game-changing opportunities that I've ever seen," said Felt. "Domo's product is truly differentiated and the management team Josh has assembled could easily be running a multi-billion business. Domo has focus and momentum. I'm looking forward to helping facilitate its growth."

Today, Domo announced another outstanding sales performance of more than 40 percent sequential quarterly growth, and is far exceeding annual growth of 100 percent.

The company's growing roster of top-flight customers includes an enviable list of the world's most recognized brands across a wide range of industries -- including travel and entertainment, media and publishing, financial services, healthcare, technology and retail.

James added, "From the beginning, we set out to deliver a solution that's bigger than BI and more than analytics. It's great to see the market sending us clear signals that we have the right product, the right team and are going after the right opportunity. As we continue to scale, we will remain focused on delivering an exceptional experience for the business user."

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
