MongoDB, a leading modern, general-purpose database platform, has launched MongoDB Atlas for Manufacturing and Automotive. This groundbreaking initiative aims to empower organizations in the manufacturing and automotive sectors to embrace the power of real-time data and connected technologies.
MongoDB Atlas for Manufacturing and Automotive offers a range of resources, including expert-led innovation workshops, tailored technology partnerships, and industry-specific knowledge accelerators, all designed to provide customized training paths for developers. These resources cater to diverse use cases, from creating digital twins of manufacturing facilities to predictive maintenance of factory equipment and building highly engaging applications for connected cars.
In an era characterized by rapid technological advancements, connectivity, automation, and real-time analytics are causing a disruptive transformation in the manufacturing and automotive industries. This transformation becomes even more pronounced as the automotive sector transitions towards renewable energy powertrains.
Organizations in these sectors must adapt their operations to leverage real-time data and connected technologies effectively to remain competitive and relevant. This adaptation is crucial for deploying solutions such as predictive and preventive maintenance of vehicles and manufacturing equipment, automated maintenance scheduling for consumers and factory technicians, and optimizing manufacturing processes through smart factory solutions and supply chain automation. However, the modern solutions required for these transformations involve the use of large numbers of IoT devices and sensors, generating massive amounts of data.
Effectively harnessing real-time data presents significant challenges for organizations in these industries. IoT devices and sensors generate data in various formats, which must be normalized, combined, and processed before advanced analytics can be applied.
Often, organizations lack the expertise needed to develop applications capable of analyzing real-time data for crucial use cases, such as identifying defects in vehicle fleets for safety improvements or detecting anomalies in factory machinery to prevent equipment failure. Consequently, many organizations in the automotive and manufacturing sectors struggle to build and deploy modern applications that can capitalize on connected technologies to transform their businesses.
MongoDB Atlas for Manufacturing and Automotive provides a range of features and resources to help organizations reimagine end-user experiences and transform manufacturing processes:
Boris Bialek, Field CTO of Industry Solutions at MongoDB, commented on the ongoing transformation: “The automotive and manufacturing industries are embracing a foundational transformation from manual assembly-line type operations to intelligent organizations based on software and automation. New vehicle drivetrains and complementary technologies provide access to vast amounts of data that is not only available in real-time but needs to be processed in real-time.”
Bialek emphasized that this transformation is still in its early stages, with many companies just beginning to grapple with the complexities of collecting, processing, and analyzing large volumes of data. MongoDB Atlas for Manufacturing and Automotive seeks to accelerate this transformation by offering expert-led industry initiatives that guide organizations from being overwhelmed by data to deriving valuable insights through modern applications.
“This industry-wide transformation is in its early stages, and many companies are just starting to figure out what they need to effectively collect, process, and analyze all of this data to make better business decisions and enhance end-user experiences. MongoDB Atlas for Manufacturing and Automotive accelerates this transformation by providing a set of expert-led industry initiatives to help organizations quickly go from ‘overwhelmed by data’ to ‘deriving valuable insights from data’ with modern applications,” Bialek added.
MongoDB is also proud to announce its partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS) as a launch partner for the AWS Automotive Competency. This recognition follows rigorous technical validation to ensure that MongoDB and AWS can empower automotive organizations to move towards an autonomous, customer-centric, safe, and sustainable future. MongoDB Atlas is already available in the AWS Marketplace, marking a continuation of the longstanding collaboration between MongoDB and AWS.
MongoDB’s initiative has garnered praise from industry partners and organizations that have already benefited from MongoDB Atlas:
Wendy Bauer, General Manager of Automotive and Manufacturing at AWS, commended the partnership’s ability to unlock innovation and meet changing customer preferences in the rapidly evolving automotive industry.
“MongoDB and AWS have worked closely together across many industries during our eight-year partnership, and with MongoDB as one of the launch partners for the AWS Automotive Competency, another one can be added to that list,” said Wendy Bauer. “This industry is rapidly evolving, fueled by a demand to meet changing customer preferences, and the complexity of the automotive industry’s challenges requires partners with deep automotive experience. MongoDB Atlas on AWS has a track record of unlocking the innovation needed to deliver the next-generation mobility experiences customers are demanding.”
Dominik Obermaier, co-founder and CTO at HiveMQ, emphasized the simplicity and power of integrating HiveMQ’s MQTT Platform with MongoDB for data management and real-time analytics.
“The HiveMQ MQTT Platform makes it easy for companies to stream IoT data from devices to the cloud to ensure they maximize value. Adding a pre-built integration with MongoDB allows our customers to eliminate the need for manual integration and harness the power of MongoDB for data management and real-time, application-driven analytics,” Obermaier said.
Stephan Kaufmann, Head of Cloud Engineering at SHARE NOW, highlighted MongoDB Atlas’ seamless deployment and its role in efficiently processing incoming data.
“We needed new versatile, automated database environments to handle all our microservices and database clusters without breaking a sweat. This would help us efficiently and accurately process incoming data,” said Stephan Kaufmann. “Deploying MongoDB Atlas was a seamless and pain-free project for us. MongoDB Atlas helps us innovate through integrating our data sets and back-end management while delivering better ROI than any other solution on the market.”
Christoffer Lange, CEO of Digitread Connect, shared how MongoDB Atlas simplified time-series data handling for their Industrial IoT platform, enabling them to serve their customers effectively.
“Time-series data is our bread and butter, and MongoDB made it simple for us to handle this,” said Christoffer Lange, CEO of Digitread Connect. “We were amazed by the simplicity and the performance. Using MongoDB Atlas showed us that we don’t have to worry about the nitty-gritty details of how to treat the database. We got the solution live for our customers in a very short time.”
As organizations in the manufacturing and automotive sectors continue to embrace digital transformation, MongoDB Atlas for Manufacturing and Automotive stands ready to empower them with the tools and expertise needed to harness the full potential of real-time data and connected technologies, ensuring they remain at the forefront of innovation in their respective industries.
