London, United Kingdom – The EY organisation announces an alliance between Databricks, a data lakehouse company, and Ernst & Young LLP to help organisations simplify and democratise data, analytics and artificial intelligence (AI). Combining the knowledge, business insights and consulting capabilities of EY data scientists with Databricks’ Lakehouse platform, the alliance will help enable massive-scale data engineering, machine learning (ML) and business analytics for organisations across nearly every industry.
Databricks has become a cornerstone for companies looking to put data at the centre of their business strategy by pioneering the data lakehouse category and providing advanced technologies that analyse and transform complex data sets into insights and solutions. The Databricks Lakehouse platform brings together the qualities of data warehouses and data lakes to help organisations accelerate innovation through critical data-driven use cases from data warehousing and data streaming to data science and ML on an open unified platform.
As a long-time consumer of Databricks, EY US has seen first-hand the platform’s immense value, having implemented it for a number of internal use cases. One notable example, the EY organisation’s proprietary solution, Trusted Data Fabric, is underpinned by Databricks. Together, the technology embeds trust to reduce the risk of data misuse, providing a platform for secure and ethical use of intelligence-enriched assets.
Greg Sarafin, EY global partner ecosystem leader, says “Entering into an alliance with Databricks strengthens our ability to address the needs of clients seeking to gain significant business benefits from their data, whether for operational efficiency, stakeholder experiences, risk mitigation or creating entirely new sources of revenue. EY teams offer the breadth of services necessary to turn data insights at scale into enterprise value, enabled by Databricks’ Lakehouse and the extraordinary AI and ML capabilities of that platform.”
Kori O’Brien, SVP, global consulting & SI partners at Databricks, says “We are thrilled to welcome EY US to the Databricks partner ecosystem to help data-driven organisations adopt the Lakehouse platform and deliver more value to their businesses with data, analytics and AI. We look forward to continuing to innovate with EY teams and provide new capabilities, services and tailored industry solutions for our joint customers to unlock the power of their data with a lakehouse.”
