"Databricks Data Intelligence Platform has helped foster collaboration across our data science and engineering teams which has impacted innovation and productivity."

— John Landry, Distinguished Technologist at HP, Inc.

HP Inc. was created in 2015 when Hewlett-Packard was split into two separate companies, HP Enterprise, and HP Inc. HP Inc. creates technology that makes life better for everyone, everywhere. Through a portfolio of printers, PCs, mobile devices, solutions, and services, their stated mission is to engineer experiences that amaze.

The Challenges

  • Siloed data: Data stored in multiple systems, in multiple places, that was hard to access and analyze
  • Existing tools difficult to manage: Reliance on old data warehousing technologies and tooling resulting in heavy DevOps work, which typically fell on the data science team

The Solution

Databricks provides HP Inc. with a scalable, affordable, unified analytics platform that allows them to predict product issues and uncover new customer services:

  • Simplified management of Apache Spark™: Turnkey unified platform removed infrastructure complexity and empowered the data scientists to focus on the data and not DevOps
  • Analysis of high volume data in flight: Analyze data from more than 20 million devices with a seamless workflow
  • Improved collaboration and productivity: a unified platform for business analysts, data scientists, and subject matter experts
