Tens of thousands of customers rely on MongoDB to power their applications every day, but each industry has its own unique set of challenges and needs. Many industries are also at a crossroads between being restricted by the capabilities of their legacy environments and the opportunity that is being presented by next-generation applications, data analytics, and generative AI. However, additional pressures like cost optimization can make it seem like transformation efforts are being stifled. Despite all of this, many organizations still feel a sense of urgency to modernize workloads for their most mission-critical applications and innovate quickly to remain competitive and meet customer demands. When providers can offer experts who understand the nuances and have deep experience working in a specific industry along with their technology solutions, it delivers the extra support organizations need to get started.

MongoDB Atlas for Financial Services
With changes in customer demands, regulatory compliance, and new players challenging incumbents, the financial services industry, which has traditionally been conservative in its adoption of new technology, is under increasing pressure to modernize applications and innovate consumer experiences. MongoDB Atlas is ideally built to help with this modernization, as well as enable organizations to build next-generation applications that take advantage of new technologies like generative AI. MongoDB Atlas also provides the resilience, scale, and highest levels of data privacy and regulatory compliance that MongoDB financial customers require.
As part of the MongoDB Atlas for Financial Services launch, MongoDB has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Financial Services Competency. To obtain this competency, MongoDB was tested against strict security, operational, and reliability requirements, validating that MongoDB and AWS can help financial institutions get ideas to market faster, while reducing cost and enhancing business agility. This builds on MongoDB’s long standing relationship with AWS, including MongoDB Atlas’ availability in the AWS Marketplace. Additionally, MongoDB has become a critical foundation of the Temenos Banking Cloud, with a recent benchmark proving that together, Temenos and MongoDB can support the needs of even the largest global banks with exceptionally high performance while providing transparent data access through the JSON document model.
“Increasingly organizations in different industries are moving away from one-size-fits-all technology solutions to improve their competitive advantage and better serve customers. At MongoDB, we’ve built a team of experts with deep industry knowledge, many of whom used to be customers, so we are not only building better products with the right third party integrations, but our team can help customers get up and running faster,” said Boris Bialek, Managing Director of Industry Solutions, MongoDB. “Nineteen out of the top 20 banks in North America already use MongoDB in their infrastructure to solve some of their most critical problems. Launching Atlas for Industries is our commitment to continuing this level of dedication across financial services and other key industries.”
“MongoDB has been a trusted AWS Partner for eight years, giving customers running MongoDB Atlas on AWS a more powerful experience for building modern applications,” Mona Chadha, Director, Infrastructure Partnerships, ISVs, AWS. “Achieving the AWS Financial Services Competency reaffirms MongoDB’s commitment to AWS and financial services customers, while demonstrating their breadth and depth of financial services expertise for use cases like fraud detection and real-time payments. With MongoDB Atlas on AWS, financial institutions can optimize to reduce costs in the short term while simultaneously transforming their infrastructure for long term growth to embrace emerging technologies such as machine learning and AI.”
Temenos is an open banking platform serving 3,000 banks, from the largest financial institutions to challenger and community banks, in over 150 countries. “With partners like MongoDB, Temenos is becoming everyone’s banking platform. A platform that allows banks to elastically scale based on business demand, provide composable banking capabilities on-demand at a low cost, while reducing their environmental impact,” said Tony Coleman, Chief Technology Officer, Temenos. “We recently conducted a performance benchmark with MongoDB proving the capability of Temenos’ platform to power the world’s biggest banks and their BaaS offerings with hundreds of millions of customers, efficiently and sustainably in the cloud.”
Wells Fargo is a leading financial services company with approximately $1.9 trillion in assets, serving one in three US households and more than 10% of small businesses in the US. “When we look for new solutions it’s not just about what the technology can enable us to do, but it is about finding a partner who can help us get the most out of the technology, with expertise in our industry, to help us work through our specific challenges and deliver solutions for our advisors and clients with agility,” said Munish Kumar, Chief Information Officer of Wealth and Investment Management, Wells Fargo.
Michael Liersch, Head of Advice and Planning, Wells Fargo, agrees. “MongoDB’s experience in working with financial services organizations and as a leading developer data platform enables Wells Fargo to deliver innovative financial advice, like our new LifeSync platform, which provides a personalized digital approach to aligning our clients’ goals with their money.”
A global leader in consulting and technology services, Capgemini has been enabling business transformation for more than 50 years and work with eight of the top 15 banks and nine of the top 15 diversified financial companies. “Working together, Capgemini and MongoDB have been enabling business critical modernization and innovation initiatives in leading financial services customers across the world with a focus on increasing performance in a cost effective way," said Nilesh Vaidya, Global Industry Head — Retail Banking and Wealth Management, Capgemini. "Our teams are also closely working together to meet new challenges that are on the horizon. We have developed unique accelerators and are actively designing the next generation of AI and ML enabled solutions to help our customers differentiate.”
Bendigo and Adelaide Bank is one of Australia's biggest banks, with more than 7,000 employees helping over 1.9 million customers. "The expertise that MongoDB delivered from working with other large customers in financial services combined with the MongoDB Atlas developer data platform, was vital in helping us transform our organization for the future,” said Matt Vermeer, Cloud Platforms Service Owner at Bendigo and Adelaide Bank. “We believe our partnership with MongoDB will help us accelerate this continued transformation of our business, deliver our technology strategy, and ultimately grow our organization to achieve our vision of becoming Australia’s bank of choice by feeding into the prosperity of customers and their communities.”
