What does databricks do?


I’ve heard news about databricks and I’ve been trying to understand what their business is. Every time I look somewhere it says it’s data analytics and their demos is always a guy writing python to generate a csv file with the results and no real reporting capabilities. How does it compare to Power BI or Tableau? Is is this AI, what does databricks really do? if someone could dumb it down for me that would be great

You can use it to try to find patterns in stock prices, or you can use it to identify a dynamic process model for an industrial machines from timelines of sensor data.
