Domo And CEO Josh James Take Aim At Tableau, Bring Flo Rida And Snoop Dogg To Tableau’s Conference
As embattled software company Tableau Software gets its big multi-day conference under way in Austin, it will have to deal with a noisy and gate-crashing Utah unicorn looking to hijack the spotlight — and bringing Flo Rida and Snoop Dogg with it.
Domo CEO Josh James smells blood in the water at Tableau. With revenue of more than $800 million per year and a market capitalization of about $3 billion, Tableau’s still much bigger than Domo. Despite tens of thousands of customers and being called a new “gold standard” for business intelligence in recent years, Tableau’s stock is down more than 50% for the year and recently named a new CEO. James’ company has raised hundreds of millions at a valuation from private investors of $2 billion, but as a private company, doesn’t face the same degree of scrutiny. James has said Domo has billings of $100 million and works with several dozen of the country’s largest 500 companies.
