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 like Logi Info, 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
  • Continue to access MongoDB capabilities, including Find and Run commands, Aggregation Framework, Map Reduce, and writebacks
