What's New in Data Handling and DbSQL
The talk focused on data handling and DbSQL. Several different ways of working with data from a DbSQL perspective were introduced. Here's how to do it.
- Data ingestion for partner integration
- Ingest on streaming table
- Incremental ingestion from the object store
- Introduction to query federated sources like Snoppy, Postgres
Using these methods makes data handling more flexible and enables efficient data analysis. It also explained how to open a notebook and see people from DbSQL. Specifically, it was introduced that you can use Serverless Pro or Classic to remove SQL-only workbooks and attach notebooks to take advantage of them. This feature allows you to work more efficiently when performing data analysis.
Databricks Workflows latest features and demos
The talk introduced the latest and exciting features of Databricks Workflows. The topic of data analysis and integration demonstrated the effective use of website activity data analysis and integration with Power BI. A demo was presented showing that website activity data can be analyzed in real time to understand user behavior and trends. A demo was also presented showing how the integration of Power BI and Databricks enables more flexible data analysis. These demos showcased the latest and exciting features of Databricks Workflows. It is expected to be useful for improving the efficiency and accuracy of data analysis.
This talk showcased the latest and exciting features of Databricks People. It is expected that the latest information on data handling and DbSQL will be provided, the efficiency of data analysis will be improved, and more accurate results will be obtained. It is expected that the functions of Databricks Workflows will continue to evolve and the world of data analysis will expand. We will continue to bring you the latest information about Databricks next time, so please look forward to it!
