What you should know: Databricks, an open-source analytics platform, gives companies the data science and machine learning tools they need to extract more value from their data, from helping health care providers develop tailor-made treatment plans to giving banks an upper hand in tracking fraudulent activity. In late 2019, the firm raised $400 million in funding at a valuation of $6.2 billion; and in June of this year, it acquired Tel Aviv-based data visualization firm Redash to expand its dashboard capabilities for customers.
