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.

Kira

Kira is a great due diligence tool and can be well utilised on both large and small transactions. It also has good application if you are looking to compare multiple documents against a model form document or market standard templates. Kira is less useful if you are looking to review emails (e.g. as part of a disclosure exercise); or if your review involves non-Latin based script languages.

Pros

  • UI/UX - tagging and naming feels much easier than you'd expect machine learning to feel
  • Accuracy - Kira's built-in models perform well out of the box
  • Assistance - Kira's support team gets back to me same day if I have a question

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.

Kira

  • Inability to relabel smart fields to suit the review process means it is hard to align it to particular projects (e.g. it would be useful to relabel the "Assignment" smart field as "Is the contract assignable?")
  • Not enough non-English smart fields.
  • Needs the ability to resell user-trained smart fields in a marketplace.
  • Output is not customizable enough.
  • Built-in analysis tools are useful but a little basic.

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

If our firm had more contracts in English, the usability of Kira would be rated higher. However, since we have to train clauses in Portuguese in order to use Kira, it makes its usability lower. We still are not able to fully use Kira for reading contracts in Portuguese. It takes a long time and many associate hours to make Kira usable in other languages.

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.

Customer Support is excellent. The online help portal is probably the best I have ever seen. Great videos with content easily found. The HelpLine is staffed by knowledgeable people. The videos have saved us providing a lot of in-house training, which we would struggle to resource. The account managers really know the product and their law firm clients and share best practices and trends.

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

Kira offers a lot more out of the box than other providers and is also more flexible around integrations. This, plus the clear pricing structure, is why we went for it instead of (or as well as) others.Diligen, RAVN, Leverton, Della, Seal not in list.

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.

  • Positive ROI: Increased comfort level of attorneys and use of tech
  • Neutral ROI: It has not significantly change how we handle projects, since there still is a need for manual review
  • Negative ROI: It has been cost prohibitive to scale it
