In our ongoing Data Vault Friday series, our CEO Michael Olschimke addresses a pertinent question raised by the audience, unraveling the discourse around the compatibility of Data Vault 2.0 (DV2.0) with Databricks.

“There has been hype going on on LinkedIn about whether or not DV2.0 is suited to exist on Databricks. Many people disagree that it is. The most significant comments are ‘lots of joins,’ ‘performance getting data out,’ and ‘not suited for modern automation.’ The latter ties to tools creating generated code per object VS. parameterized pipelines.”

In this illuminating video, Michael delves into the discussions surrounding the suitability of Data Vault 2.0 in the Databricks environment. He provides insights into the concerns raised, such as the perceived challenges related to joint operations, data retrieval performance, and the alignment with modern automation practices.

Michael offers a balanced perspective, exploring the nuances of utilizing DV2.0 on Databricks and addressing the key considerations raised in the LinkedIn discussions.
