By focusing on developer experience, MongoDB (NASDAQ: MDB) has reimagined what a database can be. Today it is the fastest growing database on the planet. It is also the most desirable one (according to the latest developer survey by StackOverflow). In addition to the core database, MongoDB offers a growing suite of enterprise tools, integrations and services. These include both hosted and on-prem tools, such as Compass (a data IDE), Charts (a native data visualization tool), and BI Connector.
