“I’ve seen firsthand how Domo transforms an organisation’s use of data, significantly shortening development lifecycles from months, and sometimes years, down to days, while making it easier for people in all departments to understand and engage with data in an easy-to-use way,” said new Domo CDO, Aaser.

“Domo has approached the data problem from a completely different angle, which eliminates the technological and organisational complexity that teams so often face in delivering value from data.

“Due to its integrated approach, Domo empowers innovators to build data apps in just a few weeks and flexibility of integrating with best-of-breed tools.”

Josh James, founder and CEO of Domo, commented: “Mohammed has
an incredible passion for making data accessible and actionable for all and aligning its use with key business goals.

“We’re thrilled to leverage his expertise to help customers compose new ways to use data with Domo to optimise how work gets done across the business.”
