Very elastic, easy to scale, and a straightforward setup

What is our primary use case?

We work with clients in the insurance space mostly. Insurance companies need to process claims. Their claim systems run under Databricks, where we do multiple transformations of the data.

Pros and Cons

  • "It's easy to increase performance as required."
  • "Instead of relying on a massive instance, the solution should offer micro partition levels. They're working on it, however, they need to implement it to help the solution run more effectively."

What other advice do I have?

There isn't really a version, per se. It's a popular service. I'd recommend the solution. The solution is cloud-agnostic right now, so it really can go into any cloud. It's the users who will be leveraging installed environments that can have these services, no matter if they are using Azure or Ubiquiti, or other systems. I don't think you can find any other tool or any other service that is faster them Databricks. I don't see that right now. It's your best option. Overall, I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

Good stability, very good data analysis tool pack and excellent documentation

What is our primary use case?

The solution can be used in any domain, including banking, insurance, health care, partitions, classifications, etc. It's basically a complete solution, that helps with data client consolidation.

Pros and Cons

  • "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."
  • "Virtualization could be much better."

What other advice do I have?

I'm a SAS Enterprise Miner certified professional. I'm both a consultant and a user of the solution. Our company is using the on-premises deployment model, although we mostly use in-house products. I use the desktop version for our clients. We might use the Cloud, depending on what the client is comfortable with. Most of our clients are enterprises. I'd advise others considering implementing the solution to look at the costs and licensing to see if it is within your organization's budget. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.
