Microsoft is or was a very useful tool to help me gain a vast knowledge and understanding of the cloud. They offer a set of tutorials that make it very easy to use. I have a team of about 16 of us and we’re constantly sharing documents utilizing this service. They offer a set of tutorials that make it very easy to use.

What do you dislike?

In the beginning or was it a little challenging to really get to see what all the benefits are. You really have to spend a lot of time reading if you don’t have someone to show you how to use it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our company has a very secure system, so when we are working remotely we do not have access to a lot of our companies drives. It made it easier to utilize the cloud service to gain access to certain files

"Best Analytics software for new users "

What do you like best?

A very easy and painless integration of this software with Apache spark is savior. The integration with other Azure services is just cherry on the cake. In our team It became easy to collaborate with other teams over the globe over a shared project. The dynamic requirements of the shared environment was fulfilled with Azure Databricks. It is a lot easier to use and provide a high speed storage solution to other azure services. The Security controls on this with all the monitoring tools is a match to solve machine learning problems. Plus the interactive notebook environment is very user friendly and proves up to GUI benchmarks.

What do you dislike?

I genuinely did not find any issues with this product. The features related to this product can vary in terms of requirements. Like for some Apache collaboration with this product can seem unusual. Yeah on terms of usability I can say I wish if the creation and navigation could be made easier for a first timers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It can be expensive but we are using it to transform large data and it is easy to integrate as well collaborate plus you pay for the support on the product which adds up to a reasonable price. Try it out and see how easier it is to implement.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using this to transform the data so it can be passed onto any other core related database or other services. It helps save a lot of time as scheduling the data and the tasks for the project is very easy here. The secure cloud storage and also is optimized which as a hole has helped us to move further with this. We purchased this one for mainly the reasons related to reliability, data flow and flexibility.

"Very friendly software for advanced and newbies to data analytics"

What do you like best?

The most desirable component of Azure Databricks is its interactive workspace. This aspect is unsurprisingly one of the main selling points of Databricks, and there's a reason why. Communication between data engineers and data scientists is not an easy problem to solve. Azure Databricks helps the communication and working channel.

What do you dislike?

Azure Databricks is customizable, but not as customizable as one would hope for a Microsoft product. Additionally, the product has more latency than competing software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The number of products dealing with data science and data engineering is exploding. I'd recommend trying out Databricks and see if it does what you're looking for. You could take the approach of trying everything. I woulnd't do that, though.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Azure Databricks is used for modeling financial time-series and economics/business data. The benefits have been increased communication between the various individuals involved in the data generated and analysis line of work.

"Implementing And Developing Is Easy For Technical Staff, Work Required For Laypersons."

What do you like best?

The ability to auto scale the infrastructure and the licensing without administrative or contract burdens with a business friendly cost model.

What do you dislike?

The lack of maturity at operationalizing workloads, workflows, and pipelines to manage execution of jobs at an enterprise scale.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Reduce time to market

Improve business process outcomes

Drive innovation

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Databricks makes writing, deploying, and managing distributed applications much simpler than multiple previous products and services. The integration with Azure is seamless and has reduced the administrative burden of managing the technology, allowing us to focus on data science and business outcomes. The product is geared and developed to a data scientist or technology specialist and requires more technical expertise than some of our business users looking for entry level data analytics. We are encouraged by their investments in machine learning and deep learning and the frequency of the product updates.

"Azure Databricks"

What do you like best?

It stores unstructured data in large amounts that cab be accessed and processed by BI Tools as wells as other statistical programming languages such as 'R' and 'Python'. The best part is that it is accessible by several other datasources, tools and technologies and other data sources and files can also be used as the enterprise data sources.

What do you dislike?

Since most of the data could be unstructured and complex, it could be challenging to beginners and as of this date, very few organizations have been using Azure Data Bricks and Data Lakes as their primary data source.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Data scientists and programmers have found Azure Databricks to be useful as they can run Statistical programming against the data to get insights into forecast and trends

"Azure Databricks - Analytics Simplified especially for newbies"

What do you like best?

It sets up the Spark environment quickly and auto scales with ease. People can collaborate on shared projects in an interactive workspace. It is seamlessly integrated with other Azure services. It helps build machine learning and AI capability solutions with a varied options of language and deep learning frameworks.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Very simple to use. Definitely worth the POC.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were trying to implement analytics within our division and were looking for ways to scale it, leveraging the serverless capability currently provided by many cloud vendors. The main benefits realized are:

1. Provides enterprise-grade Azure security,

2. Proves with the serverless option

3. Provides a collaborative and integrated environment,

4. Integrates very well with Azure databases and Power BI

Azure Databricks and low-priority VMs are a great match. Their use cases overlap heavily

"The new standard for data transformation"

What do you like best?

Databricks offers both python and R to be used as programming languages which lets the notebooks be very flexible. Jobs history and debugging is pretty straightforward and very useful

What do you dislike?

Sometimes jobs are not really visible on the history, I can see them on the log response saying it ran, but when looking on the history nothing is there

Recommendations to others considering the product

Databricks may seem expensive but we are using it to transform millions of records and still looks like a reasonable price. Try it out and see how easier it is to implement

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Transforming data so it can be passed to any database or services

"Analytics platform Azure Databricks"

What do you like best?

Azure databricks makes it easy to manage, create and deploy distributed applications. It is better than any other tool that I have used.It is intuitive and easy to use and the integration between the compute and the code is good and it also allows a level of decoupling between the clusters which makes the process faster and saves time.

What do you dislike?

The customer support is not upto the standards that we would expect from Azure. The optimization of the clusters is not transparent and it may be because of the proprietary product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Azure databricks simplifies the application development process of distributed applications in general. This helps in delivering the features faster to the client. Also new features like support for Graphical Processing Unit can be added easily.
