Overall Satisfaction with Databricks Lakehouse Platform (Unified Analytics Platform)

We use Databricks to replace traditional RDBMS like Oracle. We have Big Batch ETL, Ingestion and Extraction Job for Big data ran across different products where we leverage Lakehouse platform to put our raw data in Data Lake and Create Delta Lake platform based on high performing Parquet.
It is kind of proposed to use across the whole organization and different BU's. Databricks will be our key main virtualized platform.
It addresses very fast data ingestion, reduces the overall ETL window. Integrated different datasource and also helps to perform Machine Learning jobs to run and scale. Idea is to reduce overall computation time to save cost on onprem.
  • Data Virtualization
  • Spark Real time and Batch streaming
  • Notebook to run Jobs
  • integrate Python and Apache Spark SQL
  • SQL Analytics
  • SQL Analytics Performance
  • Help migration for RDBMS sources
  • To make Transactional OLTP aspects faster
  • Replacing Oracle RDBMS Batch job
  • Real time streaming and ingestion
  • Save Cost for maintaining Database Onprem
  • huge Licensing cost for other DB products
  • Scaleout / in helps increase overall ROI
  • Azure Synapse Analytics (Azure SQL Data Warehouse)
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
