Getting MongoDB to speak SQL

Contributed Talk | Day 2 | 13:30:00 | 45 Minute Duration | GG-B

While MongoDB is a document database with it’s own language (MQL and the Aggregation Pipeline), through their BI Connector and MongoDB ODBC driver, MongoDB can be fed SQL statements for reporting and data extraction purposes.  The value is that organizations can get all the pluses of speed, reliability, and productivity that MongoDB provides, while not disrupting their existing reporting infrastructure.  In this presentation, we will see how to leverage the BI Connector and ODBC driver to extract data to Excel, as well as tools that aid in the asking of more complicated questions of your data (specifically Compass, MongoDB Charts, and the Aggregation Pipeline.)
