Pros and Cons
  • "Databricks is a scalable solution. It is the largest advantage of the solution."
  • "The interface of Databricks could be easier to use when compared to other solutions. It is not easy for non-data scientists. The user interface is important before we had to write code manually and as solutions move to "No code AI" it is critical that the interface is very good."

What is our primary use case?

We were using Databricks to build an AI solution. We are only evaluating it, we have approximately three people that tried it out. Later we choose another solution, we did not fully deploy Databricks.

How has it helped my organization?

Before I used Databricks it took me a long time to do some functions and now with Databricks I can do them much quicker. It scales very well.

What needs improvement?

The interface of Databricks could be easier to use when compared to other solutions. It is not easy for non-data scientists. The user interface is important before we had to write code manually and as solutions move to "No code AI" it is critical that the interface is very good.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have used Databricks within the last 12 months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Databricks is a scalable solution. It is the largest advantage of the solution.

How are customer service and support?

We have been in contact with the technical support of Databricks, they were good.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We have used a lot of different solutions, such as Watson and DataIQ.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is easy. However, I do not know much about the implementation because the company does it.

What about the implementation team?

We did the implementation of the solution.

What other advice do I have?

If companies want scalability, they should choose Databricks.

I rate Databricks a nine out of ten.
