Databricks ROI

Tristan Bergh
Data Scientist at iOCO
Our ROI was of the order of USD $75k per year for one deployment. We were able to switch our workloads from an onsite Hadoop cluster, billed to our department for more than USD $100k per year, to a Databricks workspace in Azure for a quarter of that expenditure. Further, we were able to transparently and efficiently scale our queries to run under fifteen minutes per major analytics use case, while being subject to unstable queries and highly brittle data flow use cases from the in-house Hadoop cluster. We are further reducing spending on our traditional RDBMS solution by offloading reporting workloads to the Databricks PySpark notebooks, which is reducing our expensive datacenter resources and freeing up RDBMS resources for OLTP loads.
