PALO ALTO, CALIF. and NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 06/11/14 -- MongoDB, the database for modern applications, today announced that its partner program has grown to more than 500 technology and services partners worldwide, extending the company's lead as the fastest-growing Big Data ecosystem.
Demand for MongoDB is strong and growing quickly in response to an explosion of unstructured data, which today makes up 80 percent of all information created and used by enterprises, and is growing at twice the rate of unstructured data. Enterprises increasingly realize the need to look beyond relational databases to a more flexible, scalable, modern database such as MongoDB to address their changing data needs. Enterprises that have invested heavily in Business Intelligence, Systems Management, Security or other software need to know these investments will be preserved as they shift to a modern database. They also must be able to tap into expert advisors who can architect and implement MongoDB-based solutions.
Since the MongoDB Partner Program's launch in 2013, the world's biggest technology companies and cloud platforms have developed support for MongoDB, including Amazon Web Services, HCL, IBM, Infusion and Red Hat. In 2014, MongoDB forged new collaborations with technology industry titans and rising stars, including Cloudera, Google, HortonWorks, Microstrategy and Pure Storage.
Today, the company also announces MongoDB Certified, a formal partner certification program that addresses the widespread customer demand for high-quality MongoDB integrations and qualified consulting expertise, ensuring technology and services companies know how to architect their solutions with MongoDB. Certifications will be tied to MongoDB Enterprise.
"Our strength has always come from our vibrant communities -- from the developers who have embraced MongoDB to our growing partner ecosystem that is enabling the MongoDB adoption in enterprises worldwide," said Max Schireson, CEO of MongoDB. "The MongoDB certification program is the natural evolution of our business and empowers partners to become experts at designing their solutions with MongoDB in mind."
To keep pace with global demand for MongoDB, the company has augmented its channel and partner strategy leadership team. Vijay Vijayasankar recently joined the company as Vice President of Global Channels and Business Development. Drawing on his previous Big Data engineering and consulting roles at SAP and IBM, Vijayasankar will continue to grow the channel and business development team by providing partners with enhanced support to build new business around MongoDB. Peter Goldmacher, former research analyst at Cowen & Company, has also joined MongoDB as Senior Director of Corporate Strategy.
Many partners and more than 1,000 community members will be on-site at MongoDB's inaugural global event, MongoDB World, in New York City on June 23-25. For more information on attending or exhibiting at the show, please visit https://world.mongodb.com/.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.
