MongoDB Selected as the Core Content Management Component of SAP's Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) Offering

London, United Kingdom —10gen, the initiator, contributor and continual sponsor of MongoDB, offering production support, training, consulting and online management services, today announced that MongoDB has been chosen by SAP AG as a core component of SAP's platform-as-a-service (PaaS) offering. MongoDB was selected for the enterprise content management (ECM) section of the platform, as its flexibility and scalability will enable SAP to scale its content management service on its PaaS offering to meet customers’ requirements while managing data from different applications.

Cloud delivery models have emerged as a top priority for many corporate IT departments due to their quick deployments, cost-effectiveness and overall flexibility. SAP's platform- as-a-service allows customers to grow with their business, expand business processes, and integrate with existing investments.

Through an OEM agreement with SAP, MongoDB will be utilised initially for collaborative decision making, data archiving and retention management in a multi-tenant and secure environment. MongoDB will be used as the document store for SAP’s on-demand applications, delivering lower cost of ownership and increased stability.

“MongoDB offers scalability and flexibility at a total cost of ownership that enables us to deliver applications to our customers at affordable prices,” said Harald Mueller, chief product owner, Java Platform, SAP. “We need to deliver applications that meet our customers' needs now and in the future as they grow their business. MongoDB plays a crucial role in our ability to do that. We're excited about the possibilities and look forward to further use of MongoDB in the future.”

MongoDB is an open source, document database, combining scalability, performance and ease of use with traditional relational database features such as dynamic queries and indexes. It has become the leading NoSQL database choice for Fortune 500 enterprises and Web 2.0 companies that are developing innovative large- scale applications and performing real-time "big data" analytics.

“We are very excited to be working with SAP, and their decision to use MongoDB exemplifies how the solution is increasingly chosen for the delivery of enterprise cloud- based solutions,” said Max Schireson, president, 10gen. “As with other recent cloud platform announcements, this is further validation that MongoDB is enterprise-ready, and rapidly becoming the database of choice for cloud computing.”
