Data is an increasingly valuable asset for businesses and a critical component of many digital transformation and business automation initiatives. Here’s a look at 10 cool tools in the big data management and analytics space that made their debut in the first half of the year.
Databricks Vertical Industry Applications
Through the first half of 2022, Databricks, a leading data lakehouse platform developer, launched a series of application packages targeted toward specific vertical industries that tap into the functionality of the Databricks Lakehouse Platform.
The new software included the Lakehouse for Financial Services, the Lakehouse for Media and Entertainment, the Lakehouse for Healthcare and Life Sciences, and the Lakehouse for Retail and Consumer Goods.
The Lakehouse for Financial Services, for example, provides customers in the banking, insurance and capital markets sectors with business intelligence, real-time analytics and AI capabilities. It includes data solutions and use-case accelerators tailored for industry-specific applications such as compliance and regulatory reporting, risk management, fraud and open banking.
The package for healthcare and life sciences addresses challenges in such data-intensive tasks as pharmaceutical development and disease risk prediction using tailored data, AI and analytics accelerators.
Through the Databricks Brickbuilder Solutions program, launched in April, the new software packages also create opportunities for channel partners working within specific vertical industries.
