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.
