“Databricks takes the pain out of cluster management, and puts the real power of these systems in the hands of those who need it most: developers, analyst, and data scientists are now freed up to think about business and technical problems.” — Shaun Elliott

The use of data is at the heart of how these modern businesses are evolving. With this information, businesses can take advantage of AI’s promise to produce disruptive technologies that will influence practically every company on the planet. The problem most businesses confront is figuring out how to succeed with both data and AI.

The Unified Analytics Engine, Apache Spark

Enterprises are increasingly using Apache Spark to circumvent the challenges associated with walled data and diverse platforms for managing different analytic operations. Due to its record-breaking speed, ease of use, and support for advanced analytics, Spark, which was built by the founders of Databricks, has become the de facto standard for data processing and AI today. Spark makes AI data preparation easier by combining data from a variety of sources, including cloud storage systems, distributed file systems, key-value stores, and message buses, at a large scale. Spark also brings together data and AI with a consistent set of APIs for data loading, batch/stream processing, SQL analytics, stream analytics, graph analytics, machine learning, and deep learning, as well as seamless integration with popular AI frameworks and libraries like TensorFlow, PyTorch, R, and SciKit-Learn.
