Databricks Lakehouse Platform

Databricks has helped my teams write PySpark and Spark SQL jobs and test them out before formally integrating them in Spark jobs. Through Databricks we can create parquet and JSON output files. Datamodelers and scientists who are not very good with coding can get good insight into the data using the notebooks that can be developed by the engineers.

SAS Enterprise Miner

SAS Enterprise Miner is world-class software for individuals interested in developing reproducible models in a reasonable amount of time. Perhaps the most useful part of SAS Enterprise Miner is the ability to compare models with other models without writing code. The ensemble modeling capabilities is the easiest way to do ensemble modeling I have come across. SAS Enterprise Miner is well-suited for beginning to advanced analysts who know something about advanced analytics. The software is not well-suited for analysts or companies that have little interest in advanced modeling.

Pros

Databricks Lakehouse Platform

  • It supports all data science programming languages like Python and R
  • it takes very few minutes to deploy models into production
  • it has tools that ensures collaborations between developers

SAS Enterprise Miner

  • Enterprise Miner is really visual and lets you do a whole lot without actually going into the detailed options. For decent results, you should really explore the different advanced options though.
  • The recent versions of Miner allow users to use R code in Miner. You can then compare several models and approach to get the best performing model.
  • The resulting data is really well displayed and easy to understand (ex: the lift graph, score ranking, etc.)
  • Miner has the ability to integrate custom SAS code which allows the user to add functionalities that are specific to the project.

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.

SAS Enterprise Miner

  • With large data sets, SAS Enterprise Miner sometimes takes a long time to run. Sometimes you have to just leave your computer running while Enterprise Miner does its thing.
  • If you want complete control over the modeling framework, you have to take what Enterprise Miner does and customize it. SAS seems to be working hard on making things easier to customize, but it's not completely there yet.
  • The graphic capabilities of SAS Enterprise Miner leave a lot to be desired, especially in the era of self-service business intelligence software.

This has been very useful in my organization for shared notebooks, integrated data pipeline automation and data sources integrations. Integration with AWS is seamless. Non tech users can easily learn how to use Databricks. You can have your company LDAP connect to it for login based access controls to some extent

I have contacted SAS twice in the past year and they have been super responsive both times. They solved my problem. I am also registered for an in-person class next month and they called today to tell me that it will be an online-only session. They apologized for the change and registered me for the online version. Super helpful!

Alternatives Considered

Databricks Lakehouse Platform

I also use Microsoft Azure Machine Learning in parallel with Databricks. They use different file formats which teach me to be flexible and able to write different programs. They are equally useful to me and I would like to master both platforms for any future usage. I do prefer Databricks because it could be free if I decided to go with the Databricks Community Edition only.

SAS Enterprise Miner

SAS EM has a very great set of machine learning and predictive analytics toolsets, which helped our organization achieve its goals. We used other tools, but for us, SAS EM was the most intuitive and easy to learn the tool and it provides greater data exploration and data preparation capabilities compared to the other tools we used.

Return on Investment

Databricks Lakehouse Platform

  • Rapid growth of analytics within our company.
  • Cost model aligns with usage allowing us to make a reasonable initial investment and scale the cost as we realize the value.
  • Platform is easy to learn and Databricks provides excellent support and training.
  • Platform does not require a large DevOPs investment

SAS Enterprise Miner

  • SAS Enterprise Miner is a positive ROI in the sense that it saves a ton of time coding.
  • SAS Enterprise Miner is a negative ROI in that it's expensive, and perhaps makes analysts brainless.
