MongoDB will be utilised initially for collaborative decision making, data archiving and retention management in a multi-tenant and secure environment. MongoDB will be used as the document-oriented store for SAP’s on-demand applications, delivering lower cost of ownership and increased stability.
“MongoDB offers scalability and flexibility at a total cost of ownership that enables us to deliver applications to our customers at affordable prices,” said Harald Mueller, chief product owner, Java Platform, SAP. “We need to deliver applications that meet our customers’ needs now and in the future as they grow their business. MongoDB plays a crucial role in our ability to do that. We’re excited about the possibilities and look forward to further use of MongoDB in the future.”
