Automatic Labs needed to run large and complex queries against their entire data set to explore and come up with new product ideas. Their prior solution using Postgres impeded the ability of Automatic’s team to efficiently explore data because queries took days to run and data could not be easily visualized, preventing Automatic Labs from bringing critical new products to market.
Automatic Labs deployed Databricks, a simple yet powerful unified big data processing platform on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and realized these key benefits:
- Validated product in days
- Completed complex queries in minutes
- Freed up 1 full-time data scientist
- Infrastructure savings of $10K/month
