    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.

    If you are a MS shop specifically, or have more generic data requirement needs from Microsoft sourced data this will work well. If you have a lot of disparate data across a number of unique platforms/cloud systems/3rd party hosted data warehouses then this product will have issues or a lack of documentation on the net. Performance-wise this product is equal to other R platforms out there.

    Pros

    Databricks Lakehouse Platform

    • Process raw data in One Lake (S3) env to relational tables and views
    • Share notebooks with our business analysts so that they can use the queries and generate value out of the data
    • Try out PySpark and Spark SQL queries on raw data before using them in our Spark jobs
    • Modern day ETL operations made easy using Databricks. Provide access mechanism for different set of customers

    Microsoft R Open / Revolution R Enterprise

    • It allows distributed algorithm runs on Hadoop HDFS cluster
    • It allows using different file formats such as SAS7BAT files or complex files in tab or comma delimited making data munging easier
    • It provides scalable solutions by allowing users to re-use R scripts and distributing the computing over nodes through RHadoop

    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.

    Microsoft R Open / Revolution R Enterprise

    • Very steep learning curve... for such a quick and useful tool the learning curve is unacceptable.
    • Very dangerous in the wrong hands. Because most add-ons are pre-written, you have to trust the community that malicious script is not used.

    In general, Revolution Analytics brings a lot of value to the organization. The renewal decision would be based on return on investment in terms of quantified actionable insights that are getting generated against the cost of the product. Additionally, market brand of the tool and reputation risk in terms of possible acquisition and its impact to overall organizational analytic strategy would be considered as well.

    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

    It is good, easy to use, improvements are being made to the product and more info being shared in the community. It just needs some more time to become more integrated to other platforms and tools/data out there.

    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.

    Generally support comes through the forums and user generated channels which are helpful, easy to access, quickly turned around and provided by knowledgeable users. However the support channels are not employees and the channels are often used as a way to learn quick difficult elements of R. Better design, users interface and tutorial options would alleviate the need for this sort of interaction.

    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

    The two are different products for different purposes. But for someone who has little or no experience in R programming, Power BI would be better for starting with. Having said that, Microsoft R is built on R, thus allowing for customization of complex calculations not typically available otherwise.

    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.
