IBM And 10gen Collaborate To Bring Mobile To The Enterprise

According to a 2012 survey by IDG Research, 86 percent of IT decision makers view enterprise app projects as a critical or strategic priority, but two-thirds of respondents indicate it is extremely or very challenging to deliver these apps on time or on budget. By ensuring that mobile apps have access to all relevant data, an organization can now create new apps that were not possible before.

"As companies face the next era of computing, they must embrace the transformation that technologies such as mobile, big data, cloud and social business are driving in the industry," said Jerry Cuomo, IBM Fellow, and WebSphere chief Technology officer. "Through its support of MongoDB, IBM is marrying the database world with the new world of mobile app development. Now, millions of developers will be able to deliver new, engaging enterprise apps that leverage the vast data resources managed by organizations around the world."

"10gen recognizes the importance of open governance models for developing projects for the community," said Max Schireson, chief executive officer at 10gen. "IBM has played a critical role in bringing important new technologies to the enterprise, including inventing the relational database and popularizing Structured Query Language (SQL) and Linux. We are excited to collaborate with IBM and other interested parties in evolving the standards for interacting with MongoDB."

Driving a Commitment to Open Standards

By joining the MongoDB community, IBM will bring its experience in collaborating on an open standards governance model to ensure MongoDB will be developed in the spirit of the open source world. To help propel the MongoDB community, IBM will also contribute its expertise in security and international languages to ensure the standard can be used in any geography.

IBM will standardize on BSON, the MongoDB wire protocol and the MongoDB query language in two key application technologies: the elastic, in-memory WebSphere eXtreme Scale data grid platform and the DB2 database platform. 10gen will work with IBM, and other interested parties, to develop these standards. Customers can begin to use these new features in the third quarter of 2013 by pairing eXtreme Scale with MongoDB, and by running their MongoDB apps on DB2 directly.
