NoSQL databases have introduced many innovations to address the limitations of traditional relational databases. Key among these innovations is a flexible data model able to support the large volume and variety of data being generated by modern applications. In contrast, data modeling in relational databases can be inflexible and slow to adapt to the requirements of a rapidly changing business environment.
A flexible data model provides many benefits, such as:
- Being able to adapt to the quickly evolving needs of the business
- No time consuming updates are necessary to the existing data in the system
- It simplifies combining data from multiple sources
MongoDB, the leading NoSQL database, enables a document data model that allows for iterative and adaptive data modeling. This adaptive data modeling, or flexible schema design, lets you incorporate new data into your applications without a predefined schema.That makes it easy to iterate on your application with no downtime for your application.
MongoDB is a database built for today’s applications. With MongoDB, dynamically modify the schema without downtime, simplify your design and reduce the complexity in developing applications.
