The tech industry’s ceaseless and exponential growth is no longer a surprise. As long as clients and end-users remain interested in faster, more efficient services, then tech companies will continue to improve business processes to meet the demand. Simultaneously, these improvements will reduce costs and maximize revenue. It’s a win-win--if, of course, it’s done correctly. So, what’s behind most success stories? How do some companies launch and maintain applications at such rapid, expansive scale? Often, the key to success lies in fostering core business processes that are driven by automation.
For many tech-based organizations, Appy Pie Connect has been the go-to seamless integration platform that helps them get started. And now, with MongoDB Realm, it’s about to get even easier. Users build best in-class-apps across Android, iOS, and web with MongoDB Realm’s mobile database, sync solution, and application development services.
Why use Appy Pie & MongoDB Realm?
Together, Appy Pie and MongoDB are driving seismic operational change. Originally, Appy Pie AppMakr product moved to MongoDB Realm for local storage. But after experiencing the immense ease and advantages offered by Realm--specifically, its offline-first database that supports cross-platform app development-- we decided to extend its benefits to the customers of Appy Pie Connect.
As an automation platform, Appy Pie Connect helps businesses automate manual tasks through smart integrations, allowing for intuitive, instant sharing between apps less commonly connected like MailChimp and LinkedIn or Stripe and Gmail, and so on. By integrating MongoDB and MongoDB Realm with Appy Pie Connect, customers can easily store or retrieve data within multiple database sources. This enables the storage of flexible schemas and maintains consistency and integration. This unique “no code” technology allows organizations to extract and work with data from MongoDB and then apply that data to desired software through triggered-based actions. For example, users can set up a trigger for every event on their Google Calendar so that their Slack status corresponds and is updated at the start and end of each meeting. This way, data concurrency is maintained without any manual effort.
Realm is a particularly great choice for the customers at Appy Pie Connect because of its effortless data syncing. View some of the common use cases below.
In the Meter Billing example below, cost is calculated in real time based on usage (e.g. video viewing time), resulting in a transparent “pay as you go” model.
With real-time data sync, any updates or changes to the application are immediately reflected without requiring users to update or reinstall.
All API failure logs are conveniently displayed to the admin on the Appy Pie dashboard so that immediate troubleshooting actions can be taken.
Benefits of MongoDB Realm and MongoDB Atlas
Appy Pie Connect already uses MongoDB Atlas, so moving to Realm -- a MongoDB product offered through Atlas -- was a natural choice. Realm allows mobile users to sync data quickly and seamlessly between mobile devices and backend systems, even if they go offline (sync will occur when they are connected) -- and Atlas enables it all.. Some benefits of using Atlas are as follows:
flexible data schema
Document oriented storage
Ad hoc queries, indexing, and real-time aggregation
Powerful tools for data analysis
Serverless function and GraphQL support
Easy hosting and quickly able to built rest API
Ultimately, Appy Pie Connect helps businesses convert MongoDB into a central data store by pulling in and replicating data from all its sources. This allows customers to create new MongoDB documents automatically from new Typeform entries, new files on Dropbox, new posts on WordPress, or other resources.
Similarly, Appy Pie Connect can also send MongoDB data to other third-party apps, including WordPress, Salesforce, Slack, Mailchimp, Google Drive, and many more. This makes enterprise-wide communication and collaboration much more efficient. When data is pulled from MongoDB through automation, it can help streamline other areas of the business. For example, when you pull MongoDB data into MailChimp, you can automatically add a new subscriber on Mailchimp. This ensures that your lists grow automatically, as fast as your business does.
Ex. Appy Pie Connect seamlessly sends MongoDB data to third-party apps
Send data from MongoDB to LinkedIn (without any code!) to quickly post accurate job-related content
Extract retail product data into Google Sheets to record valuable data in an organized manner in one place
Post enterprise-related content from MongoDB to Twitter to streamline social media presence
How it works
Appy Pie Connect employs a trigger-action based function that allows you, as a platform user, to choose the two apps you want to connect. The process is very straightforward. Once you choose the apps you wish to integrate, you will be presented with multiple options to connect them. Simply click on the “Connect” button.
To integrate with the selected applications accounts, simply allow API access for Appy Pie Connect.
Next, design the workflows by mapping all of your data synced from the applications you are connecting. Once complete, you are ready to test your brand new Connect with your Trigger and Action apps. And, that’s it! It is time to experience the magic of Appy Pie Connect at work. Let the automation workflows take over the mundane, repetitive tasks, and move on to more innovative, exciting tasks.
As the efficiency of an organization improves through automation, one of the most direct advantages is a marked reduction in cost. These integrations help save hundreds of hours of manual effort, thereby freeing up talented resources to instead focus their energy and intellect on more critical, innovative issues. With Appy Pie Connect and MongoDB Realm, businesses can ensure that their workforce is not only optimized but also inspired, a key factor to employee satisfaction and overall company success.
