MongoDB has customers in the world's largest government bodies, including the Intelligence Community, Department of Defense, and a diverse set of civilian agencies in areas from healthcare to finance to energy.

Government is increasingly faced with growing data volumes and shrinking budgets, new use cases and legacy infrastructure. Traditional systems are not only expensive but also poorly-equipped to handle government’s twenty-first century needs for scale, cost efficiency and flexibility. Government entities – from municipalities all the way up to federal intelligence agencies – are building their applications on MongoDB to increase the speed of their application development and to provide higher quality applications.

Example Government Solutions

Crime Data Management and Analytics. Legacy criminal record systems based on relational databases are often brittle and difficult to adapt to legal and regulatory changes. MongoDB makes it easy and cost-effective to adapt the technology as the law evolves and to incorporate information from disparate sources. With MongoDB, law enforcement organizations can deploy innovative, real-time analytics to identify offender-specific, geospatial and other crime patterns quickly and effectively.

Citizen Engagement Platform. Government entities are increasingly creating Web 2.0 engagement platforms to encourage civic participation. These platforms often include a variety of media types, metadata and social features for which relational databases are not a good fit. With MongoDB, government organizations can quickly develop, deploy and iterate on these platforms to spur civic engagement. MongoDB makes it easy to serve dynamic, personalized content, to create interactive features like contests and webcasts, and to strengthen the connection between government and the electorate.

Program Data Management. Managing program/user data and maintaining interoperability across various backoffice systems presents a growing challenge for municipal, state and federal agencies. MongoDB’s dynamic data model makes it easy to store and access all this information in one place, increasing operational flexibility and decreasing overhead. MongoDB also enables agencies to leverage the same information in new ways, such as benefit fraud detection.

Healthcare Record Management. Healthcare records, from patient documents to procedure information, are some of the most complex and rich data in government records. A single data set can hold some records with tens of fields and others with thousands of fields. MongoDB provides a flexible platform for aggregating, storing, exposing and analyzing this data in one data store, helping reduce system sprawl and data dispersion and increasing operational efficiency.
