Connectors

MongoDB BI Connector

MongoDB’s flexible data model and dynamic schema allow you to store data in rich, multi-dimensional documents to quickly build and evolve your apps. But your Business Intelligence platform expects fixed schemas and tabular data.

Benefits
general_features_automation

Reduced reliance on custom ETL jobs

Free up valuable developer resources by removing the need for complex ETL processes that move data from MongoDB into other systems for analysis.

general_features_on_demand

Streamlined BI architecture

Extend your Atlas database with a serverless Data Lake. You can federate queries and analyze data across live clusters and S3, without time sink.

atlas_integration

Works with your BI platform of choice

The BI Connector is compatible with many popular BI and analytics platforms. Use MongoDB as a data source for Tableau, Excel, MicroStrategy, Microsoft Power BI, Qlik, and many more.

misc_achievement

Better answers

Reduce the likelihood of inconsistent analysis by allowing data consumers to connect directly to live operational data and eliminating the usage of ungoverned data transformations.

general_features_global_clusters

Minimize impact

Reduce the performance impact of analytical workloads on other applications that rely on the same database by directing queries from the BI Connector to a secondary within your cluster.

general_features_management

Fully managed (Atlas Exclusive)

Generate insights from data managed by MongoDB Atlas in a matter of minutes. The BI Connector for Atlas is a turnkey service that automates provisioning, patching, and failover.

How it works
