Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"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. Performance-wise, it is great.""The most valuable aspect of the solution is its notebook. It's quite convenient to use, both terms of the research and the development and also the final deployment, I can just declare the spark jobs by the load tables. It's quite convenient.""I work in the data science field and I found Databricks to be very useful.""The time travel feature is the solution's most valuable aspect.""I haven't heard about any major stability issues. At this time I feel like it's stable.""Imageflow is a visual tool that helps make it easier for business people to understand complex workflows."

"The setup is straightforward. Deployment doesn't take more than 30 minutes.""The solution is very good for data mining or any mining issues.""he solution is scalable.""Most of the features, especially on the data analysis tool pack, are really good. The way they do clustering and output is great. You can do fairly elaborate outputs. The results, the ensembles, all of these, are fantastic.""The most valuable feature is the decision tree creation.""The most valuable feature is that you can use multiple algorithms for creating models and then you can compare the results between them.""Good data management and analytics.""The solution is able to handle quite large amounts of data beautifully."

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."

More Databricks Cons »

"The user interface of the solution needs improvement. It needs to be more visual.""The solution is very stable, but we do have some problems with discrepancies involving SAS not matching with the latest Java versions. It's not stable in cases where SAS tries to run on a different version because SAS doesn't connect with the latest Java update. Once a month we need to restart systems from scratch.""The solution needs an easier interface for the user. The user experience isn't so easy for our clients.""Virtualization could be much better.""The ease of use can be improved. When you are new it seems a bit complex.""The visualization of the models is not very attractive, so the graphics should be improved.""Technical support could be improved.""While I don't personally need tutorials, I can't say that it wouldn't be helpful for others to have some to help them navigate and operate the system."

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.""I am based in South Africa, where it is expensive adapting to the cloud, and then there is the price for the tool itself.""The price is okay. It's competitive.""Databricks uses a price-per-use model, where you can use as much compute as you need."

More Databricks Pricing and Cost Advice »

"This solution is for large corporations because not everybody can afford it.""The solution is expensive for an individual, but for an enterprise/institution (purchasing bulk licenses), it is not a high price for the use that will come from it."
