  • 25,000 SQL tables into one mongoDB collection
  • Most people use mongo for social media apps, logging/monitoring and other applications. No-one has attempted to construct an entire ERP system on MongoDB until iBE.net came along. Rather than 25,000 SQL tables (approx. number of SQL tables in both SAP and Oracle ERP)

But this still poses enormous challenges for a schema-less database like mongo, with more joins that you can shake a stick at. Learn from iBE.net's founders why they selected mongo over conventional SQL for their enterprise backbone, how they overcame schema design, referential integrity, de-normalization and joins with innovative work-arounds, and some new challenges in their future such as guaranteeing multi-phased commits
