Databricks and Data-Driven Announce Strategic New Partnership

Databricks and Data-Driven Partnership
Sydney, Australia – September 17, 2020 – Data-Driven AI has announced a strategic partnership with Databricks, the leader in Unified Data Analytics to deliver Azure Databricks solutions to it’s customers. This partnership combines Databricks’ simplified approach to data science/analytics with Data-Driven’s precision engineering and consulting services to enable smarter and better outcomes for clients.

The business knows that there’s gold in all that data, and your team’s job is to find it. But being a detective with a bunch of clunky tools and difficult to setup infrastructure is hard. You want to be the hero who figures out what’s going on with the business, but you’re spending all your time wrestling with the tools.

Databricks was built to make big data simple. Apache Spark™ made a big step towards achieving this mission by providing a unified framework for building data pipelines. Databricks takes this further by providing a zero-management cloud platform built around Spark that delivers 1) fully managed Spark clusters, 2) an interactive workspace for exploration and visualization, 3) a production pipeline scheduler, and 4) a platform for powering your favorite Spark-based applications. So instead of tackling data headaches, you can finally focus on finding answers that make an immediate impact on your business.

As a advanced analytics consultancy specialising in ML and data transformations at scale it was a natural choice to partner with Databricks as their platform accelerates analytical workloads whilst removing technical barriers and silos. The Unified Analytics Platform mantra goes hand in hand with our data-driven philosophy do driving business value with data. This partnership will result in a better outcome for our customers and that is always our top objective at Data-Driven.

Data consulting focus on delivering a personal experience
“Without Databricks + Delta Lake we would not have been able to extract insights at the scale, speed and cost required by our customers. Databricks also provides a seamless experience for Data Engineers, the Business users and Data Scientists while removing technical barriers. This partnership will allow us to focus on business outcomes and less on technical challenges.”

Practice Director @ Data-Driven
