Enterprises have been collecting ever-larger amounts of data with the goal of extracting insights and creating value, but are finding out that there are many challenges in their journey to operationalize their data pipeline. These challenges include, cluster management, deploying, upgrading and configuring Spark, interactively exploring data to get insights, and ultimately building data products. 

Databricks’ vision is to dramatically simplify big data processing. It was founded by the team that created and continues to drive Apache Spark, a powerful open source data processing engine built for sophisticated analytics, ease of use, and speed.
