MongoDB Charts on MongoDB Atlas Removes Technical Barriers to Bring Native Data Visualization To All Users

NEW YORK, NY – December 11, 2018 – Today MongoDB, Inc. (Nasdaq: MDB), the leading modern, general purpose database platform, announced the beta release of its native data visualization tool, MongoDB Charts, on its fully managed global cloud database-as-a-service, MongoDB Atlas. The fastest and easiest way to build real-time visualizations of MongoDB data, MongoDB Charts allows users to quickly create data visualizations and share them with their teams with no code to write, no tools to configure and no data movement or duplication.

Because MongoDB Charts natively supports the document model, it removes the complexity of visualizing hierarchical JSON data and users do not require any engineering knowledge into how the data was structured to build real-time visualizations that inform business decisions. Previously, the rich data commonly found in modern applications required intense data modeling in order to produce data visualizations. With MongoDB Charts, it’s only a matter of clicks.

The Easiest MongoDB Data Visualization

MongoDB Charts on MongoDB Atlas, which runs on Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform, democratizes data access by giving all team members the ability to explore and visualize data for any number of business tasks, regardless of their skill set or physical location. Now, customers will be able to manage users and permissions in one place because MongoDB Charts is now fully integrated with MongoDB Atlas. Furthermore, no effort is required to set up and onboard data sources into MongoDB Charts on MongoDB Atlas. Users merely need to select a data collection from an Atlas cluster and they can begin building charts, reports and dashboards.

“The vast majority of tools in the business intelligence space struggle with handling rich, JSON data that is becoming increasingly common in modern applications. This not only makes it difficult to extract real time insights, but puts a technical hurdle in front of non-technical teams because there was no easy way to create data visualization without writing code,” said Dr. Grigori Melnik, Vice President of Product, Server and Enterprise Tools, MongoDB. “MongoDB Charts on MongoDB Atlas completely eliminates this technical burden and brings fast, data-driven insights to every member of an organization. That’s a relief both for the teams that need access, and for the technical employees that used to have to serve as gatekeepers to an organization’s data.”

Embedded MongoDB Charts: Coming Soon for Developers

Intelligent applications that provide real time graphs, maps and charts are becoming the status quo and an expectation of the developers that build applications. In 2019, MongoDB Charts will add an embedding feature that will allow developers to create visualizations and embed them in external websites or applications.
