Most of the features are very nice and MongoDB is a solution that I would recommend. If a company or organization needs a document management platform or is doing marketing analysis then this is a good product. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

We are a small laboratory and always look for open source solutions or solutions where the licensing is every year. We are prepared to do the troubleshooting ourselves. The most important part is to evaluate the rest of the ecosystem integrations. When we started, the driver that we used to develop the application was in C++ wasn't relevant. At the start of the project, we had some difficulties because there was no documentation available. There were no examples and no support from the community. You have to take into account the languages that you are using. If you are going to develop in the main languages of the solution such as Python, or JavaScript, then you won't have to worry. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

I will rate this solution a seven out of ten because I like the interface and the integration with other tools. In the next version, perhaps they can modernize the storage options. I think they have a very good reputation, from what I hear from our client comments. The program has speed and it has simplicity. If you want to extract the application, the terms of applicability it is good. And you can use the intelligence within the program.

The features that I have looked for are in this solution and we are using an older version. The current cloud-offering, MongoDB Atlas, has even more features. It would be a natural fit for us, but it will not be easy to move because we have a lot of dependencies. We have to update drivers, isolate collections, and take care of other issues before we can switch. My advice for anybody who is implementing this solution, or any other database, is to take care to plan your indexes because it is extremely important. Spending some time designing the document structure in the initial phase will certainly help you in the long run. I would also suggest that in terms of sharding, try to think about it as early as possible so that when you are ready to scale, it will certainly help to reduce the workload. Do not rely on MongoDB for any of the analytics use cases. Aggregation works well but do not use it for your reporting or analytics or number crunching-related tasks. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

MongoDB is a solution that I can recommend because we have realized good benefits from it. We are in the process of setting up the ODS project, which should help the organization from a cost perspective. Then we will be moving the mainframe data to ODS, and we can use the MongoDB API to fetch data from there and provide real-time solutions to the customer. At this time, I cannot judge the benefit of MongoDB in isolation, but as time goes on, perhaps by the end of the year, I will have a better idea. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

MongoDB Atlas was the deployment mechanism we went with and that was hugely helpful for us. MongoDB Atlas is part of the MongoDB suite, I think. It's just a deployment of the Mongo. We also deployed it on Amazon using DocumentDB, but we found that MongoDB Atlas worked better in the end.

My advice is not to use Relationships in MongoDB. MongoDB is not a relational database, so don't try to use Relationships in MongoDB. I would rate MongoDB as eight out of ten.

My advice to others would be not to use MongoDB for complex business applications or difficult queries. There are some integration issues that need to improve, so I will rate this solution an eight out of ten. Still, it is a very good product that is user-friendly and it works fast.

The solution scales very well and is very easy to replicate. If you need something done quickly and you need something that does scale fairly well I would suggest MongoDB. You can always transition away from it later on. It's always a solid first bet if you want a simpler kind of web page or web system. It's a very solid choice if you want to get up and running quickly. It's my go-to for all these little startups that I manage. MongoDB seems to give just exactly what we need and I find most of my clients have never transitioned away from MongoDB. I would rate the solution seven out of ten.
