MongoDB Primary Use Case

Team Lead at RBS Securities

I have done a variety of things with MongoDB that started with the adoption of this solution at one company. I was involved in setting up the cluster and then the monitoring, alerting, and backup process. Once all of the set up was complete, I was involved in writing some of the components that were responsible for fetching data from MongoDB.

We are now responsible for running the platform, so whoever wants to run MongoDB comes to us and we explain how we can deploy the cluster for their applications. At this point, we build a cluster in the servers under a UNIX account. The number of nodes in the cluster depends on the requirements of the application side.

Some of the use cases we have configured MongoDB for are desk-tooling and a payment card profiling project. We are currently working on a data exchange platform. We also have a couple of use cases in the pipeline for potential MongoDB clients who also need the MongoDB Ops Manager.

Associate Director - Database & DevOps at Medlife

When the company started, MongoDB was our primary database.

It offers great flexibility where developers can define any key and assign a value to it. This means that there is very little that one has to plan in terms of designing the schema upfront, so developers enjoy a lot of flexibility. Now that we have more use cases for which NoSQL is not suitable, we are trying to move those workloads out of MongoDB.

We primarily use the solution for long-term storage. We use it to store all our data. We also use it to support microservices that already have calculated data. We don't use it for any other purpose.

MongoDB is a document database that we use for internet applications, logs, and all kinds of things that need quick answers, especially in the document area.

We use MongoDB in different products. The first is a Business Process Management System (BPMS) that we have developed for ourselves. MongoDB stores all of the data for business flow management.

The second product is in the capital market. We have implemented it to use all of the stock-related data.

We have also developed an online shipping product, using MongoDB for storing product features.

Data Engineer | Full Stack Developer at a tech services company with 1,001-5,000 employees

We use it as a data warehouse, and we also use it for software development when we are not sure how much and what kind of data we would get from the customers. For a short span of time, we also use it for the data lake to dump the data of a temporary instance so that the developers on the next node can leverage this data.

Our primary use case of MongoDB was development. We used it from a developer point of view, writing the platforms and storing some data. It was deployed on the AWS cloud.

Our primary use case of this solution is for schema lists. It's easy to populate the data and to get information for summaries and things like that. The second use case is that there is a mainframe and the upgrades on the mainframe can use your CPU time. As the customer is working on the mixed product, it becomes very costly. Using MongoDB internally allows us to divide as much as we can with it. And there is a service provision that I think is much cheaper than continuing the maintenance of the machine.

We are using this solution for storage and mapping. We have developed an application for mapping. We source the GeoJSON position for approximately eleven million points.

Our application is made for desktops, and we started using MongoDB for that application.

We have four teams in our laboratory and the other teams are developing their applications to be used with MongoDB.

The primary use of MongoDB is for mapping the application.

Head of Department at a transportation company with 10,001+ employees

We do not use MongoDB extensively. Initially, we wanted to store login information, dumping the entire message into the database. It stores transaction details about the users, but only for login purposes. Essentially, we store information about access and usage.

In the future, we will build some reports for this data.

We use it in our virtual environment.

Our software produces a lot of predefined JSON Structures. We save those JSONs in an encrypted form inside MongoDB.

It's simple storage of JSON. We do not perform any database functions.

Software Developer at Empresa de Telecomunicaciones de Cuba

Our main purpose is to build a historical data lake containing commercial data of service usage, products, retailers and wholesalers, AAA sessions, account recharges and transferences, et cetera. We're looking at the whole company's key internet usage data from a commercial perspective. 

The data lake holds data from 5 years, so now we're triggering ML processes. The impact of the product in the community has been huge, and by that I mean, the community of developers that make apps for the telecommunications market. 

In our country, we were pioneers at using MongoDB. Now, at least 7 developer teams are using it.

AA
Projects Manager at Emery Investments

We do payroll for government workers. One service we provide is called e-Payslip. You go into the portal, create an account, and download your payslip for the month. If you have to do something that requires you to submit a payslip, you can go to the portal and get your payslip electronically. 

We also have what we call the ESPV. This allows unit managers to validate workers before they are paid for the month. It's an attempt to remove ghost names from the government payroll, so there's a cycle. At some point, somebody who is actually working must be validated in the system, and then the unit head confirms. This is checked by HR before salaries are paid, so you have to be a validated worker before your salary is paid.

We use this solution to deal with large amounts of data, including pictures, voice data, and video data. These types of data are not suitable for SQL databases — MongoDB was designed to deal with such data. Video, pictures, voice, and other files.

Currently, we just have one customer using this solution.

We use it for big projects. We have multiple DBs on multiple servers, so we have a good performance for it. Sometimes, we are using cloud systems, like Azure, or VMs.

We are using MongoDB like a warehouse for data that has no relation nor a need to scale.

Senior Database Administrator Engineer at a comms service provider with 10,001+ employees

We recently had customers asking about MongoDB, so we have started to deploy new environments for that. We have implemented it may be four times. We are implementing it for our customers in our own infrastructure. We have done on-premises as well as cloud deployments. 

Our database team works on the use cases. I work only on the implementation part. I am responsible for getting the clusters up and running. I'm just managing the server and guaranteeing that the clusters are up and running and backing up. I also handle the monitoring.
