In these times of less funding for science and research researchers can collaborate and connect with their colleagues to carry out new studies. This can also boost efficiency by allowing researchers to build on the work of others instead of having them replicate previous studies.
Data sharing tools can help unite teams around a shared vision, improve productivity and decision-making capacity, and foster innovation and improvements in the quality of data across departments. This is why it is essential to select the right data sharing tool that supports the speed, scale, and the governance needs of your company.
In the past, in order to share data among different parts of an organisation users have had to manually cut and dice data they want to share and then create copies for customers on their end. This can cause security concerns (recreating the same data in multiple regions can be risky), and can be an issue in terms of managing data.
The Databricks Delta Sharing platform enables users to create a single, dynamic view of their most critical, real-time data. The shared data can be instantly consumed by multiple business stakeholders across a wide variety of applications, including Databricks and non-Databricks platforms. This allows analytics teams to spend more of their time on analysis and less on manual work such as creating reports for internal business stakeholders or answering tickets from IT. This results in better decision-making, faster projects and higher productivity.
