We’re thrilled to share that Databricks has won the AWS ISV Partner of the Year award for North America. This award recognizes top ISV Partners that are using AWS to lower costs, increase agility, and innovate faster. Achieving this recognition underpins the strength of our partnership and ability to provide a simple, unified data intelligence platform that’s seamlessly integrated with AWS.
Databricks was also a finalist for the following awards, recognizing our demonstrated expertise in data and analytics across industries and regions:
- ISV Data and Analytics Partner of the Year - Global
- Industry Partner of the Year - Retail & Consumer Packaged Goods - Global
- Industry Partner of the Year – Advertising and Marketing - Global
- Non-Profit Organization (NPO) Partner of the Year - LATAM
These achievements demonstrate Databricks’ commitment to creating a seamless and industry-leading data and AI experience for our joint customers. Notably, Databricks is available in AWS Marketplace, as well as in the AWS Marketplace for the U.S. Intelligence Community for intelligence agencies to evaluate, purchase and deploy vendor applications in minutes via AWS IoT 1-Click®.
Earlier this year, Databricks added support for AWS Graviton3 instances, to provide even more choice and flexibility for customers to optimize the performance and cost of their data workloads. Databricks also recently highlighted the customer preview of Lakehouse Federation to allow customers to run federated queries using data stored in Amazon Redshift. The preview of federated queries on Redshift highlights Databricks and AWS’ commitment to creating an open and interoperable lakehouse architecture that enables Databricks customers to include their full data estate in their analytics. This is one of many innovations that Databricks and AWS have collaborated on in the past year for our mutual customers. Finally, we announced the ability to query Delta Lake tables seamlessly in Amazon Athena to improve the operational efficiency, query performance, and TCO using lakehouse architecture built on Amazon S3. This innovation allows Athena to use metadata contained in Delta Lake files to reduce data scan costs and achieve up to 40% better query performance.
Databricks returned to re:Invent this year as a Diamond Sponsor, hosting innovative sessions around building and deploying custom LLMs, and the strategic importance of governance in the age of AI, featuring joint AWS and Databricks customer, Block.
