Domo, provider of the world’s first business optimisation platform, today announced the opening of its second Australian office in Melbourne.
The expansion is a result of Domo’s continued growth, with the company now boasting a plethora of customers across Asia Pacific and Japan, and reflects the growing demand from businesses looking to transform the way their business is managed.
Domo’s new Melbourne office is the company’s third office in APJ, adding to the company’s Japan office and APJ Hub which is based in Sydney. The Melbourne office will report into Paul Harapin, vice president and general manager, Domo Asia Pacific and Japan
“2016 has been bumper year for Domo. At more than 100 percent growth, we continue to hit our aggressive targets across APJ. This growth is testament to Domo’s value proposition which has really resonated amongst those businesses in the region. We are seeing demand from established multinationals to disruptive start-ups, who want a more intuitive and immediate way of turning the data surrounding them into actionable market opportunities,” said Harapin.
The software-as-a-service provider’s momentum in customer growth has ranged across a number of sectors, including new enterprise, consumer, and start-up customers, as well as a number of countries, with major customers in Hong Kong, Singapore, India, and Australia.
More than 65 per cent of businesses in Asia are yet to harness Big Data in more than just an ad hoc, opportunistic manner,1 largely because decision-makers can’t find the answers and clarity they need from typical BI and analytics tools. Domo’s technology helps CEOs and business managers to access and derive value from vast amounts of data in a simple, efficient, and collaborative way.
“Business leaders don’t want to read data about data – they want a command-and-control platform which enables them to quickly understand any market situation, come to consensus, and take the necessary actions without delay. Every business knows the struggle of getting too little value out of too much data, and our growth this year suggests that Domo’s unique combination of visualisation, collaboration, and mobility does indeed help them decisively end that battle,” continued Harapin.
Domo has also rapidly increase its regional headcount to keep up with the pace of growth in its customer base. Since launching in APJ in 2012, the company’s growth has been driven largely by Harapin, who was previously responsible for developing VMware, converged infrastructure venture VCE, and IBM’s Tivoli business from the ground up into dominant technology providers throughout the region.
“Building successful technology businesses has long been a passion of mine, and I believe the best is yet to come for Domo in Asia Pacific and Japan – we’re hard at work at the next cycle of apps, APIs, and data analytics capabilities that will take our customers’ operations to the next level in the year to come,” concluded Harapin.
