MongoDB

MongoDB is well suited to sensitive data issues due to its sophisticated security controls and advanced functionality. It is also well suited to mission critical tasks due to its high availability from geographically distributed fault tolerance.
It is probably less suited for less mission critical applications due to the amount of data it stores as this could be an extra cost to the organisation and could possibly implement a cheaper tool.

Pros

SAS DataFlux

  • dfPower Studio connects to virtually any data source, and any dfPower Studio user in any department can use dfPower Studio to profile, cleanse, integrate, enrich, monitor, and otherwise improve data quality throughout the enterprise. dfPower Architect, an innovative job flow builder, enables users to build complex management workflows quickly and logically.
  • DataFlux Integration Server supports the ability to run batch dfPower Studio jobs in a client/server environment.
  • DataFlux Integration Server for SAS additionally enables allows SAS programs to invoke DataFlux batch jobs from a SAS program and allows SAS programs to call a business service that was designed in the dfPower Studio client environment.

MongoDB

  • Being a JSON language optimizes the response time of a query, you can directly build a query logic from the same service
  • You can install a local, database-based environment rather than the non-relational real-time bases such a firebase does not allow, the local environment is paramount since you can work without relying on the internet.
  • Forming collections in Mango is relatively simple, you do not need to know of query to work with it, since it has a simple graphic environment that allows you to manage databases for those who are not experts in console management.

Cons

SAS DataFlux

  • DataFlux handled all of our data integration needs. It could be considered pricey when compared to Microsoft's bundled SSIS product.
Robert Goodman | TrustRadius Reviewer

MongoDB

  • An aggregate pipeline can be a bit overwhelming as a newcomer.
  • There's still no real concept of joins with references/foreign keys, although the aggregate framework has a feature that is close.
  • Database management/dev ops can still be time-consuming if rolling your own deployments. (Thankfully there are plenty of providers like Compose or even MongoDB's own Atlas that helps take care of the nitty-gritty.

We are happy with the software and its functionality. As a SAS-shop, DataFlux is a logical choice for complex data integration.

I am looking forward to increasing our SaaS subscriptions such that I get to experience global replica sets, working in reads from secondaries, and what not. Can't wait to be able to exploit some of the power that the "Big Boys" use MongoDB for.

NoSQL database systems such as MongoDB lack graphical interfaces by default and therefore to improve usability it is necessary to install third-party applications to see more visually the schemas and stored documents. In addition, these tools also allow us to visualize the commands to be executed for each operation.

The support is generally quite good for the solution. It allows you to modify a support plan and enable you to bring in a different plan for your different needs.
This can be broken into: Developer, Pro, and Enterprise.Using Pro we have SLAs in place as we work on big systems which would bring severe consequences if there is downtime.

While the setup and configuration of MongoDB is pretty straight forward, having a vendor that performs automatic backups and scales the cluster automatically is very convenient. If you do not have a system administrator or DBA familiar with MongoDB on hand, it's a very good idea to use a 3rd party vendor that specializes in MongoDB hosting. The value is very well worth it over hosting it yourself since the cost is often reasonable among providers.

MongoDB

MongoDB was the most full-featured NoSQL database we evaluated - that offered atomic transactions at a document level, built-in HA & DR, open source, robust queries, and enterprise level support.Other platforms had specific parts of what we were looking for - MongoDB had it all.

Return on Investment

SAS DataFlux

  • Complex data integration.
  • SAS integration.
Robert Goodman | TrustRadius Reviewer

MongoDB

  • Much faster development time.
  • Price is fantastic compared to MSSQL when you consider OS costs and the entire package.
  • Only negative to me is the lack of DBA skills for it, due to it being a new player in the field. I feel like that will get better as time moves on however.
