Databricks Lakehouse Platform

If you need a managed big data megastore, which has native integration with highly optimized Apache Spark Engine and native integration with MLflow, go for Databricks Lakehouse Platform. The Databricks Lakehouse Platform is a breeze to use and analytics capabilities are supported out of the box. You will find it a bit difficult to manage code in notebooks but you will get used to it soon.

Google Cloud AI

Google Cloud AI is a wonderful product for companies that are looking to offset AI and ML processing power to cloud APIs, and specific Machine Learning use cases to APIs as well. For companies that are looking for very specific, customized ML capabilities that require lots of fine-tuning, it may be better to do this sort of processing through open-source libraries locally, to offset the costs that your company might incur through this API usage.

Cons

Databricks Lakehouse Platform

  • Better Localized Testing
  • When they were primarily OSS Spark; it was easier to test/manage releases versus the newer DB Runtime. Wish there was more configuration in Runtime less pick a version.
  • Graphing Support went non-existent; when it was one of their compelling general engine.

We are extremely satisfied with the impact that this tool has made on our organization since we have practically moved from crawling to walking in the process of generating information for our main task to investigate in the field through interviews. With the audio to text translation tool there is a difference from heaven to earth in the time of feeding our internal data.

Because it is an amazing platform for designing experiments and delivering a deep dive analysis that requires execution of highly complex queries, as well as it allows to share the information and insights across the company with their shared workspaces, while keeping it secured.

in terms of graph generation and interaction it could improve their UI and UX

So far we have not had any problems with the application, it is extremely easy to use and it is also easy to install. It does not require much training since the instruction is quite clear for its execution and application in the procedures of the company. The team in charge of this application is very pleased to work with this app.

One of the best customer and technology support that I have ever experienced in my career. You pay for what you get and you get the Rolls Royce. It reminds me of the customer support of SAS in the 2000s when the tools were reaching some limits and their engineer wanted to know more about what we were doing, long before "data science" was even a name. Databricks truly embraces the partnership with their customer and help them on any given challenge.

Every rep has been nice and helpful whenever I call for help. One of the systems froze and wouldn't start back up and with the help of our assigned rep we got everything back up in a timely manner. This helped us not lose customers and money.

In fact, you only need the basic tech knowledge to do a Google search. You need to know if your organization requires it or not,. our organization required it. And that is why we acquired it and solved a need that we had been suffering from. This is part of the modernization of an organization and part of its growth as a company.

Alternatives Considered

Databricks Lakehouse Platform

Databricks has a much better edge than Synapse in hundred different ways. Databricks has Photon engine, faster available release in cloud and databricks does not run on Open source spark version so better optimization, better performance and better agility and all kind of performance boost can be achieved in Databricks rather Open source synapse spark

Google Cloud AI

Amazon AWS AI provides is better than Google Cloud AI if you are looking for better support to customize the AI / ML algorithms being used. Google Cloud AI does a better job than Microsoft Azur ML when customization is not needed but speed to market is needed. IBM Watson is on par with Google Cloud AI in certain verticals or even better, for example, healthcare.

The problem with this tool and all other ones that are at the top of the industry, it's so expensive that soon as another one will be on the market and deliver the same or different value, it will be catastrophic for them. So you get the fact that they are cashing every dime right now like SAS or Hadoop once did. Now, look at them

Again, another level of professional services, this is not their biggest strength but this is the cherry on top. I couldn't think about any other professional services like this one. Now I'm talking about meaningful services that really help out our project and delivery.

Return on Investment

Databricks Lakehouse Platform

  • Machine learning is a very new concept and not many universities offer to teach it. My school and a few others have been utilizing Databricks as one of the tools to teach and learn machine learning. By doing this, my university is creating a strong future workforce for the job market.

Google Cloud AI

  • Artificial intelligence and automation seems 'free' and draws the organization in, without seeming to spend a lot of funds. A positive impact, but who is actually tracking the cost?
  • We want our employees to use it, but many resist technology or are scared of it, so we need a way to make them feel more comfortable with the AI.
  • The ROI seems positive since we are full in with Google, and the tools come along with the functionality.
