Introducing Delta Sharing on Bobsled

Teams can now instantly share and market data products natively to customers on Databricks without ever managing a Databricks Workspace. 

Steven Jacobs

Vice President of Marketing

We’re thrilled to expand our support for cross-platform data sharing with our newest release: Delta Sharing on Databricks.

Teams can now instantly share and market data products natively to customers on Databricks without ever managing a Databricks Workspace. That means faster time-to-insight for your customers, quicker deal cycles for your sellers, and more time for your engineering team to focus on building world-class data products.

“Cloud-native delivery on platforms like Databricks is an essential part of the way we bring our products to market –  and Bobsled has expedited the process,” said Brian Battaglia,  Executive, Property Intelligence Solutions, at CoreLogic. “We can now share instantly to CoreLogic clients on Databricks via Delta Sharing and the Databricks Marketplace, which has freed up time for our teams.”

Quick Start

The big picture: platforms like Databricks are the engines that turn your data into value

Bobsled is built on a basic belief: platforms like Databricks are not just tools for data consumers – they are the engines that transform data from files and tables to dollars and cents.  Every second a data team spends getting your data analytics-ready is a second not spent generating insights.

Making data instantly available through sharing protocols like Delta Sharing (and the marketplaces they power) is not just a nice-to-have for consumers, it’s a need-to-have for growing a modern data business.

The challenge: sharing on Databricks is easy (as long as you’re already on Databricks)

Databricks is a powerful platform that its customers love – and it’s built powerful tools for providers to market and share their products through Delta Sharing and Databricks Marketplace.

But capitalizing on these tools when you manage your data products elsewhere is challenging:

  • Your engineering team is an expert in your platform – not Databricks. It takes time and money to get them up-to-speed and ready to build
  • Databricks is a platform-as-a-service model, so that means some key elements like security are managed by its users. Get ready for a *thorough* InfoSec review.
  • The pipelines your team build will break (they eventually always do) and customers will not understand (do they ever?)

The solution: Delta Sharing on Databricks with Bobsled

With Bobsled, you can share data to prospects and customers on Databricks without managing infrastructure on the platform. 

Here’s how it works:

  • Connect Bobsled to your data lake or warehouse
  • Select the data product you want to share 
  • Pick the Databricks Workspace where you want the data to go
  • Share ready-to-query data instantly

Your customer gets ready-to-query data natively in their Workspace and your engineering team gets to focus on building products that will grow your business.

Speed up trials and onboarding 

Our customers know that the faster you can go from interest-to-insight the more likely a prospect will buy. One study found that financial data consumers spend on average 10-15 days just ingesting and prepping trial data sets. Bobsled allows your sales team to get analysts up-and-running on your data by the end of your onboarding call. 

Start listing on the Databricks Marketplace 

With Bobsled, getting on the Databricks Marketplace is no longer a big decision. Customers can create a listing, back that listing with a live data product – and pay Bobsled nothing until prospects start reaching out. It’s a low risk, high reward path toward more revenue and happier customers.

Easily support sharing to other platforms

Databricks is not the only platform your customers use. With Bobsled, your team integrates once and instantly can share data with customers onto Snowflake, AWS, GCP and more.

“Cloud-native delivery on platforms like Databricks is an essential part of the way we bring our products to market –  and Bobsled has expedited the process,” said Brian Battaglia,  Executive, Property Intelligence Solutions, at CoreLogic. “We can now share instantly to CoreLogic clients on Databricks via Delta Sharing and the Databricks Marketplace, which has freed up time for our teams.”
