Databricks is an easy-to-set-up and versatile tool for data management, analysis, and business analytics. For analytics teams that have to interpret data to further the business goals of their organizations, an easy-to-set-up program is essential to overall success. There is no precise timeline for how quickly Databricks can be set up by a given organization. That will likely be determined by the skill of the team tasked with implementing it. However, the documentation that is provided to aid in the setup is straightforward and goes a long way to ease the implementation of this solution. It is not unusual for the rollout to take as little as 20 minutes for an efficient team to complete.
Databricks is also both highly flexible and versatile. If teams find that the scale of the product is such that they need to expand the load that it handles, then this can be accomplished with ease. The system actually offers recommendations to help optimize its efficiency. The only limit on its versatility is your organization’s budget.
The support team that is responsible for aiding users when they face issues is extremely efficient and responsive. The support team even goes so far as to connect users so that they can share information that could improve the ability of those organizations to use this solution. Additionally, they are proactive and attempt to anticipate the potential needs of Databricks customers.
Databricks is designed to overcome the problem of different coding environments only working with certain programs. The solution allows users to integrate their data into various environments as is required. This means that it becomes easier for people to work together and share information across platforms seamlessly.
Azure Stream Analytics allows users to analyze data in real time. This can be extremely useful for organizations that rely on streams of data to do business. However, its ability to collect historical data leaves something to be desired. This serves as a disadvantage for companies that rely on such data to operate.Conclusion
I would choose Databricks over Azure. Databricks’s ability to connect to many types of cloud service gives it an edge over Azure. This functionality makes it a more versatile and, in my opinion, more effective tool.
