"We are completely satisfied with the ease of connecting to different sources of data or pocket files in the search""Automation with Databricks is very easy when using the API.""Databricks is based on a Spark cluster and it is fast.

Cons
"The event handling, such that the file system watcher, is in need of improvement.""It would be great if Alteryx could take third party tools and incorporate them.""The solution could work on the BI side of the tool to make it a bit better.""The GUI interface functions but it could stand to be updated to a more modern look and feel.""There is currently no cloud solution and this would be valuable for many clients.""The server is too expensive for what you get and it really a designer desktop on a server.""The only area where the product lags is documentation and videos on the analytical app and the batch macro.""There are no ready models to use in analytics."

More Alteryx Cons »

"The integration features could be more interesting, more involved.""Some of the error messages that we receive are too vague, saying things like "unknown exception", and these should be improved to make it easier for developers to debug problems.""It should have more compatible and more advanced visualization and machine learning libraries.""The solution could be improved by integrating it with data packets. Right now, the load tables provide a function, like team collaboration. Still, it's unclear as to if there's a function to create different branches and/or more branches. Our team had used data packets before, however, I feel it's difficult to integrate the current with the previous data packets.""It would be very helpful if Databricks could integrate with platforms in addition to Azure.""Databricks is an analytics platform. It should offer more data science. It should have more features for data scientists to work with.""Pricing is one of the things that could be improved.""The product needs samples and templates to help invite users to see results and understand what the product can do."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The pricing is $5000 per year per production license.""We have a yearly cost that we pay for the licensing. We do not pay any costs in addition to the licensing fees.""There are some implementation services and internal effort costs at the beginning but there is nothing else.""The price for Alteryx Designer is reasonable but the price for Alteryx Server for universal collaborations is too expensive.""Opt for the three year subscription. It is 20% less than the yearly one.""ROI is huge. There are some secondary benefits, like analysts getting their post 5 PM time back or the ability to shorten all closing processes to a half or less.""It is $4,000 a year, so it is cheap versus other solutions. It also accomplishes three times the volume on the job in the same time (as the other solutions).​""I don't know much about the licensing, but there are some additional costs for certain features."

More Alteryx Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Whenever we want to find the actual costing, we have to send an email to Databricks, so having the information available on the internet would be helpful.""I do not exactly know the costs, but one of our clients pays between $100 USD and $200 USD monthly.""Licensing on site I would counsel against, as on-site hardware issues tend to really delay and slow down delivery.""We find Databricks to be very expensive, although this improved when we found out how to shut it down at night.""The pricing depends on the usage itself."
