Mongo DB

What is Mongo DB?

MongoDB is a leading NoSQL database that empowers businesses to be more agile and scalable with their data. Application developers particularly like the flexible document-oriented store, which allows for the direct storage and retrieval of structured, semi-structured, and polymorphic data without the need for complex object relational mapping.

NoSQL solutions are one of the newer and most popular approaches for handling large-scale and flexible data requirements.

When used in conjunction with a business analytics platform, MongoDB enables report authors and BI application developers to:

Extract value from big data and all their data sources through data access and mashup capabilities

Report and create visuals on data stored in MongoDB and other hierarchical data sources through data flattening
