Databricks Unified Analytics 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.

Db2 Warehouse on Cloud

IBM dashDB's ability to store and provide fast access to data both on-premise and in the cloud makes it best-of-breed when it comes to implementation flexibility. All the while you can have one data solution that pulls data together from Hyperion Planning (Oracle) and Microsoft Dynamics (MM) into the same system as part of an EDW project.

Cons

Databricks Unified Analytics Platform

  • The navigation through which one would create a workspace is a bit confusing at first. It takes a couple minutes to figure out how to create a folder and upload files since it is not the same as traditional file systems such as box.com
  • Also, when you create a table, if you forgot to copy the link where the table is stored, it is hard to relocate it. Most of the time I would have to delete the table and re-created.

Db2 Warehouse on Cloud

  • IBM dashDB could be clearer about the technology used to deliver the particular tier of the service you buy.
  • IBM dashDB can be cost prohibitive for folks needing to push a lot of data from on-premise into the cloud on a regular basis.
  • IBM dashDB is really like three data technologies in one and the sales teams at IBM sometimes can't explain why the MPP tier is better for certain uses over the db2 BLU based tier.

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

Easier to set up and get started. Less of a learning curve.

Db2 Warehouse on Cloud

IBM dashDB stacks up well against both on-premise (SQL Server and DB2), but it was a tough choice to go with over AzureDB. Ultimately, the deep discount by IBM led us to go with dashDB with the understanding that we could back out of the technology at a later date.
