Querying a dataset is not very intuitive, so I think that it can be improved.

In terms of what could be improved, I don't think we are in a position to give any kind of recommendation to the MongoDB service provider, because we still are in the evaluation phase. We are not mature. We just have six months of experience, and we have not found any challenges with that service provider where we could recommend that they need to add XYZ for this catalog.

The cost needs improvement. The product is good, but the cost that we paid for it is expensive, so it wasn't that valuable.

During the configuration, we did some migrations where we had to reindex about 70,000 indexes, which took around an hour. They should improve this and optimize the indexing.

We had some bad trainers when we first came onboard and would rate them fairly low. They did not seem staffed properly to fulfill the training services that they offered.

The import and export process needs improvement, i.e., getting in and out. Moving data from other databases into MongoDB, along with indexing, was challenging. However, it has been improving. I would like them to make the product easier to use.

I would like a more comprehensive dashboard. The UI can be difficult to understand. Going forward, we would like to have pure AWS Cloud (native) storage instead regular storage on the AWS integration side.

The UI application for MongoDB crashes a lot, so we would have to use a third-party plugin to make it work. It may have been improved by now.

Our use case for MongoDB Atlas is not an as an RDBMS. It is a NoSQL database which means that it's not like a traditional database such as Oracle or Microsoft SQL Server. It's a NoSQL database, and it is much easier to manage. The scalability is very high, the performance is very high, and the cost is lower as compared to the traditional database for cloud.

If you understand cloud computing, there is nothing called licensing. They call it a service - we are getting software as a service. We are not getting any licenses for that. If you need a service today, you use that service today, and if you don't require it tomorrow, you will discontinue with it. So you will not incur any costs from the licensing side. You will just pay as you go, that's it.

We pay for licensing on a monthly basis and we are fine with the cost.
