Search in Financial Services: Optimizing Information Discovery with MongoDB Atlas
To compete in today’s environment, financial services must leverage technology to create responsive and agile systems as well as user customer experiences. With users expecting internet-like search capabilities, financial institutions must adopt search mechanisms that are easy and intuitive to use in order to solve for a variety of user and applications needs, ranging from internal research investigation to information discovery for external customers. Current standard banking platforms can easily hold over 100,000+ tables in their relational databases, which make searching for information pernicious and costly. You’ll find institutions adopting specialized search engines on top of their relational databases. However, bolting on a search engine adds the operational overhead of maintaining three separate systems (search engine, database, and sync mechanisms). Combining MongoDB Atlas and Atlas Search, financial institutions can reduce operational overheads whilst transforming customer engagement and internal efficiencies.

IDC White Paper: Effective Data Management Is Essential for Taming the 5G Network Complexity Beast
5G services are breeding new expectations for both consumers and business/enterprise customers. Millions of users and billions of connected devices (mobile phones, purpose-built Internet of Things [IoT]) — and scores of applications residing on these devices — each have their own operational policies to ensure adequate network performance, service availability, and quality of experience. This paper explains why a modern data platform built on the principles of dependability, adaptability, flexibility, scalability, and availability is so essential for addressing transformational change in today's rapidly evolving real-time business environment. Increased automation needs and AI-driven operations depend on a developer data management platform such as MongoDB that can satisfy these requirements while addressing rising network and operations complexity along with growing customer expectations.
Application-Driven Analytics: Defining the Next Wave of Modern Apps
The digital economy demands smarter applications and faster business insights. To meet these demands, analytics has to be “shifted left” to the source of the data, to the applications themselves. We call this shift application-driven analytics. And it’s a shift that both developers and analytics teams need to be ready to embrace. In this paper, we will define application-driven analytics along with its use cases and business drivers. We’ll then discuss the foundational capabilities needed to deliver on smarter apps and real-time business insights before wrapping up with examples of customers already on this journey. Download
MongoDB adds security seasoning to further distinguish core MongoDB from other NoSQL fare
451 Research just released coverage of MongoDB’s newest security features following MongoDB World 2022 — and we’re proud to share their confidence in the security outcomes we’re enabling for our customers. In their in-depth glance at MongoDB’s recently expanded security functionality, 451 Research affirmed that “MongoDB’s approach to build security directly into its platform is commendable, as it removes commercial barriers to secure by default, secure by design system design principles. Positioning MongoDB as a whole to be secure by default, secure by design greatly clarifies the go-to-market message while better appealing to development, infrastructure and security customer stakeholders”. You can read the full write-up here to learn more about the recent moves that MongoDB has made to bake leading security solutions into our innovative developer data platform. Download the report
MongoDB: Capabilities for Use in a Zero Trust Environment
Zero trust presents a new paradigm for cybersecurity. In a zero trust environment, the perimeter is assumed to have been breached. There are no trusted users, and no user nor device gains trust simply because of its physical or network location. Every user, device, and connection must be continually verified and audited. Because databases contain so much of an organization’s sensitive (and regulated) information, as well as data that may not be sensitive but is critical to keeping the organization running, it’s imperative that your database is ready and able to work in a zero trust environment. This paper will demonstrate MongoDB’s ability to be integrated into a zero trust environment. We’ll also explain some of the security measures that protect our cloud-based database, Atlas, and the rules governing employee access. And for our government customers, MongoDB Atlas for Government is FedRAMP Ready and in-process with HHS as the agency sponsor!

A New Era in Core Banking Data
How Temenos and MongoDB Change the Core Banking Landscape Banking solutions were developed a long time ago and usually have a life cycle of decades. Interestingly, it’s not rare to see systems built in the 1980s followed by another wave of core banking systems built in the 1990s. These architectures were optimized under different constraints meaning it is not surprising that they fail to support today’s scale and pace of change. What should a modern architecture for such a system look like? And how can this migration work? Temenos, one of the world’s primary core banking software providers, have recently announced that they will support MongoDB as one of their database technologies for their TRANSACT offering. Choosing MongoDB in a combination with appropriate technologies is what makes it possible to build scalable and flexible applications and application landscapes with lower cost per operation than ever before.

Shared Responsibility in the Cloud
Businesses are all in on the cloud. But they’re not so sure about cloud security. Roles and responsibilities need to be defined. Only then can they be confident in their cloud workloads. Before the cloud, businesses owned and managed their entire environment and were responsible for ensuring the security of all the assets under their control. Cloud security follows a different approach. Some responsibilities fall clearly on the business, some on cloud providers, and some on the vendors of the cloud services being used. This is known as the shared responsibility model. For a more detailed breakdown of shared responsibilities in MongoDB Atlas, download the datasheet. Download
