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.

KNIME Analytics Platform

If you have a team of engineers or data scientists who do not like to code, KNIME can be a good platform to build quick and dirty pipelines. However if you are moving away from R&D to deployment, KNIME lacks the scalability compared to Python or R itself. When deploying, you can choose to output json or use their native front end from KNIME Server, but KNIME Server is not free.

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.

KNIME Analytics Platform

  • Visualization can be improved further though it has been better with new versions, with a lot of scope available. However, connectivity to Tableau somehow overcomes this. Also, skilled resources are difficult to find for KNIME, due to other solutions having better penetration.
  • Knowledge of R/Python is required to fully use the statistical analysis (rather than just data mining). Also, memory usage is a problematic issue sometimes.
  • Not enough domain usage experience can be shared between KNIME users as well.

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

Since it is relatively new, there has not developed a vast previously asked/frequently asked questions library that comes up when you google an issue you come across with. This will happen only in time, and as the community grows. Because of the same reason, the community is not big. Consequently, it is possible not to receive good, fast responses to asked questions in community hubs and forums.

Databricks Unified Analytics Platform

Easier to set up and get started. Less of a learning curve.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

KNIME Analytics Platform

KNIME is a lower price point and has strong cross platform capabilities. Other platforms are locked to a specific operating system and cost in some cases substantially more, making them less good choices for smaller businesses that still need basic data unification. The fact that KNIME is OS-independent is a big positive.

  • Platform is easy to learn and Databricks provides excellent support and training.
  • Platform does not require a large DevOPs investment

KNIME Analytics Platform

  • Lowest TCO compared to other tools
  • Accelerates analysis - the analysts can dedicate more time to analysis itself, not to data preparation
