Are you wondering if your data platform is designed to be both sustainable and future-proof? Is your organization experiencing significant growth and is the value delivered by the data platform stagnating? With our Well-Architected Assessment service, customized for Databricks and other data platforms, you get answers to these questions. This comprehensive review ensures that your data infrastructure is optimized, secure and cost-effective.
Here we explore these Well-Architected Reviews who, why, what and when.
Who is the Well-Architect review for?
- If you use Databricks as your primary data platform and want to cut costs.
