Announcing Our Partnership with Databricks

Srini Kadamati

Preset is excited to announce our partnership with Databricks. Starting today, Preset Cloud is available on Databricks Partner Connect!

Databricks users can launch a new free instance of Preset Cloud from within their Databricks account with database connection details pre-configured, even if they don’t have an existing Preset Cloud account.

While both Apache Superset and Preset have supported Databricks for a while, this integration cuts down the number of steps needed to connect Databricks to Preset from 20 steps down to just 6 steps.

Databricks Partner Connect makes it easy for you to discover validated data, analytics, and AI tools directly within the Databricks platform – and quickly integrate the tools you already use today. With Partner Connect, you can simplify tool integration to just a few clicks and rapidly expand the capabilities of your lakehouse.

Databricks and Preset (powered by Apache Superset) are both built on popular open source projects and have a shared DNA in the modern data ecosystem.

Using Databricks and Preset, you can:

  • unify your data science and analytics needs on a single platform (the Databricks Lakehouse),
  • enable end-users to use Preset’s no-code chart building experience to craft charts & interactive dashboards without having to know SQL,
  • create responsive dashboards backed by Databricks and embed them in your application using the Preset SDK,
  • and much more!

Here’s a quick walkthrough of how to launch Preset Cloud from within your Databricks Lakehouse.

New to Preset?

Preset Cloud is a modern business intelligence platform that enables all personas in an organization to analyze, visualize, and consume data. While Preset’s no-code chart builder generates queries on the analyst’s behalf, Preset’s SQL editor and Jinja templating features enables SQL power users to build highly dynamic queries and charts.

Built on top of Apache Superset, Preset extends the core Superset experience by adding a multi-workspace manager, single sign-on (SSO), SOC2 compliance, world-class support, an embedded offering, a powerful SDK, and more.

Here at Preset, we believe the future of BI is Open Source. We recommend reading the following posts to learn more about our perspective:
