Databricks Doubles Down on Delta Sharing Open Ecosystem With Product Innovations and Strategic Partnerships
Databricks announced new and expanded strategic partnerships for data sharing and collaboration with industry-leading partners, including Acxiom, Atlassian, Epsilon, HealthVerity, LiveRamp, S&P Global, Shutterstock, T-Mobile, Tableau, TetraScience, and The Trade Desk. Databricks' investments in its open data and AI ecosystem enable customers to efficiently collaborate across platforms and unlock AI innovation.

Data sharing has become critically important in the digital economy as enterprises need to easily and securely exchange data and AI assets to unlock value from their data. Databricks' Data Intelligence Platform is built for collaboration with partners, customers, and vendors. Unlike competitors' locked-in sharing implementations, Databricks' open platform allows organizations to easily and securely share their data and AI assets across regions, clouds, and platforms.

Collaboration on the Databricks Data Intelligence Platform is powered by Delta Sharing, an open, flexible and secure approach for sharing live data to any recipient across clouds, platforms and regions. For data providers and consumers, Databricks Marketplace provides an open marketplace for discovery, evaluation and installation of data and AI assets to help accelerate innovation.

Databricks is also helping customers share and collaborate on data across organizational boundaries. Databricks Clean Rooms provides a privacy-safe environment for collaboration without direct access to sensitive data. Unlike other data clean rooms on the market, Databricks Clean Rooms supports any language or workload, including native support for ML and AI with Python. With this flexible, interoperable and scalable solution, organizations can securely collaborate with anyone on any cloud or platform, without the need for replication.

"Today, it's imperative that every business can collaborate with partners and customers on data and AI regardless of their choice of platform or cloud. The Databricks Data Intelligence Platform is built for open sharing and collaboration," said Matei Zaharia, Co-Founder and CTO at Databricks. "We are excited to invest in continued product innovation with Clean Rooms and to welcome strategic partners into our open ecosystem. We will continue to provide our customers with an unmatched set of capabilities that simplify cross-platform sharing and collaboration."
