MongoDB World in NY City this week

I attended the MongoDB World in NY city earlier this week on June 24th. and 25th. There were 2000 attendees for this first-time event. I met many people who flew in from all over the world. It was quite a phenomenon for a six-year old company. The momentum of MongoDB  is truly amazing.

For those who do not know MongoDB, it’s a new generation open source NoSQL database for building highly interactive modern applications. Enterprises have built “systems of record” over last 3 decades using traditional RDBMS such as DB2, Oracle, MySQL and SQL Server. These systems are like the interstate highways built during the 1930s across the USA. They serve the business in handling basic functions, but are inadequate in meeting several new needs. Hence the need for building “systems of engagement” has arrived. These systems connect customers, employees, and partners into the business using mobile devices and providing visibility of critical business information. MongoDB provides two crucial functions – an easy to use development platform with very high coding velocity; and a horizontally scalable operations spanning 100s and 1000s of commodity servers at much lower cost compared to the traditional systems. Many new features for easy management of such distributed systems were announced.

While Hadoop brings a highly economic distributed  platform to handle batch-oriented offline analytics, MongoDB addresses the online transactional workloads. They compliment each other, much like today’s operational systems do with the data warehousing solutions. Hadoop is a step up in the EDW and analytics world, while MongoDB is a step up in the mission critical business transaction world. At the conference, many customers across all verticals presented success stories on how they have used MongoDB to address the data variety problem and built systems at record speed. It only takes weeks to a couple of months from inception to finish, not possible using the standard RDBMS-based technologies. Special features like handling spatial data with indexing and text search, were highlighted by some customers.

Cloudera founder and CTO Mike Olson gave a keynote on the co-existence of Hadoop and MongoDB, so did Amazon’s CTO Werner Vogels on using MongoDB via AWS. Other keynotes were given by Max Schireson, CEO of MongoDB and Eliot Horowitz, CTO of MongoDB. A number of CIOs and CTOs of large enterprises were present also. The excitement and developer endorsement was visible all around. It clearly showed that amongst the new database solutions, MongoDB is the unquestioned leader. Beside Amazon AWS, MongoDB is also available in other cloud solutions such as Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft Azure.There were many partners showing their support of MongoDB at the exhibition booths – Teradata, Cloudera, AppDynamics, Pure Storage, SAP, etc.

For a first-time event, MongoDB World was quite remarkable!
