Data driven business: HSBC
A digital revolution is happening at HSBC.

An example of that is how two HSBC trading IT teams are migrating away from relational databases to MongoDB as a technology to help simplify, migrate and manage complex data change. This technology shift is happening in tandem with a philosophical shift to an agile development and devops culture, enabled in part by MongoDB’s flexibility and scalability.
