This talk will go over several aspects of MongoDB usage in Cisco's Enterprise Social Platform - WebEx Social, starting with "Why migrate to NoSQL from a relational world?" all the way to sharing some best practices. It will be covering topics like - evaluation of MongoDB, system architecture, challenges encountered in activity stream and resolutions, leveraging MapReduce for offline processing in Recommendations and Analytics. We will also present an overview of a developer–friendly tool to convert Java object to MongoDB object and vice versa without using mapping file or annotation.
