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.

Great for pulling in multiple files to combine and clean for an output file for further analysis. Not good if you need to query your database for a data set to review and prep for analysis.

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.

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

It works well and is user friendly for the basics but needs more options for bring in data (using SQL queries for example) and export format options.

I have not really had to reach out for any kind of customer support for Tableau Prep, so I can't really say. However, the support that Tableau has given for their other products has been great, so I would assume it would be the same here. They are also constantly adding new features and providing software updates, and that is always a plus.

Live connections to cloud services (Google Sheets for example) and cloud hosted databases (cloud hosted SIS for example) for scheduled flows are not supported

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.

Tabluea prep was much better than Spotfire for syncing data.
