We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

It's easy to add and remove things in MongoDB. You can alter the tables. MongoDB is faster at reading, slower at writings.We haven't had any issues with stability.Scalability seems good. I've never been even close to finding the limits. I've run a couple of notes of redundancy but I've never had any problems with scalability.Easier to maintain the data with its document-based storage.The installation is very stable.

The transaction could use improvement. From MySQL, for example, you cannot create a transaction if you are reading and writing a document at the same time.We find it difficult to incorporate MongoDB in some projects.More stable indexes would be helpful in a future release. That's been an issue for some time. I don't know if it's been fixed now but we transitioned to it because we needed a search index to be able to search for things and if that goes or starts disappearing, we have to move away from that solution. I don't know if they fixed it, last time I had this issue was three years ago so they might have solved it.The improvements could be made to intelligence to detect disk storage and prevent MongoDB from crashing.
