CRN staff compiled the top partner-friendly products that launched over the past year, then turned to solution providers to choose the winners.
DATABRICKS LAKEHOUSE PLATFORM
Data lakehouses combine traditional analytical data warehouse capabilities with a data lake–the latter a store of raw data in its original format. The Databricks Lakehouse Platform unifies data, analytics and AI tasks with comprehensive data governance and security. Databricks updated its flagship product in June with improved data warehousing performance and functionality, expanded data governance, new data-sharing capabilities (including an analytics marketplace), machine learning life-cycle improvements, data clean rooms for secure collaboration, and automatic cost optimization for ETL operations. Databricks scored highest overall in the solution provider survey and highest in revenue and profit.
