Launch of MongoDB Stitch Backend as a Service (BaaS)
We released a beta of MongoDB Stitch, our BaaS for MongoDB, designed for the way modern web and mobile apps are built. Stitch is the next phase of MongoDB's mission to dramatically increase developer productivity by eliminating routine and undifferentiated tasks. The service lets you focus on building the app users want instead of taking time to write boilerplate backend logic. Stitch also provides developers full access to MongoDB, the ability to declare fine-grained data access controls, and composability with other services - whether those be internal microservices, or external web services such as FaceBook and Google for authentication, Twilio, Slack, AWS (S3, SES, SQS), GCM, and more.
The MongoDB Stitch FAQ is a great place to learn more.
MongoDB Atlas Database as a Service: Now Available on GCP and AzureWe have extended the availability of MongoDB Atlas beyond Amazon Web Services (AWS) to include Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and Microsoft Azure.
The addition of support for Azure and GCP allows teams to easily gain the productivity benefits from MongoDB’s flexible data model and expressive query language on their preferred public cloud. Organizations can feel confident that their managed MongoDB deployments are in close proximity to their applications, secure, always on, and fully elastic.
Eliot Horowitz KeynoteAt MongoDB World, Eliot Horowitz, CTO and Co-Founder, explained his commitment to improving, expanding, and innovating on MongoDB. Along with the launch of Stitch and expanding Atlas, Eliot also discussed the forthcoming MongoDB 3.6 release and announced some exciting new features.
New improvements include:
- Extending the $lookup operator to support more expressive JOIN operators
- Strict document validation for data governance
- Change streams, implementing an API on top of the oplog
- Retryable writes, meaning the MongoDB driver will automatically retry writes in the event of failure

AdvocacyWe hosted our annual Advocacy Summit, where we invited 50 of our community leaders for an opportunity to connect with the MongoDB team and meet other fellow Advocates face-to-face. The Advocates got to meet the engineering team, offer product feedback, and share their knowledge and expertise with other practitioners.
Partner SummitOver 120 participants from 60+ partner organizations, including global service integrators, OEM, consulting and services firms, resellers and technology companies, attended the 3rd Annual MongoDB Partner Summit. MongoDB executives shared our vision with the MongoDB partner ecosystem. We discussed how MongoDB is addressing the top challenges facing enterprises, and how we can work together with our partners to deliver enhanced value to our customers. Attendees were briefed on our proven best practices and frameworks to help organizations establish a single view, modernize legacy applications, operate leaner by offloading reliance on mainframes and embrace emerging technologies, such as blockchain.
The summit also featured a fireside chat with Ben Falk, former VP of Basketball Strategy for Philadelphia 76ers, who discussed the rapid adoption of analytics in sports to make smarter decisions on and off the field. The open and interactive format of the summit allowed us to gather invaluable feedback, and provide attendees with insights into future areas of technology investment.
