Forbes has been around for nearly 100 and on the web for more than a decade; recently the media space has been a changing landscape. Once of the changes that Forbes has undertaken starting in 2010 was the “opening up” our digital and print platforms to a global collection of content creators, marketers and audience members. This necessitated the changing of how our site worked, allowing content to flow easily through the site. We began to evaluate how we store and serve our content and decided to use MongoDB. We are currently using MongoDB for storing articles and companies data and are working to move more of our core assets onto it.
