MongoDB ODBC Driver — SQL Access to MongoDB NoSQL Data

MongoDB ODBC Driver — SQL Access to MongoDB NoSQL Data

Posted on September 28, 2016 0 Comments

Progress DataDirect MongoDB drivers are certified by MongoDB to provide SQL access to the NoSQL data stored in your MongoDB instance. This guide will help you get started with our MongoDB ODBC driver.

The MongoDB ODBC driver is one of the most popular Progress DataDirect drivers. This driver provides powerful SQL access to the NoSQL data stored in your MongoDB instance. Our MongoDB drivers let you map a logical schema against complex MongoDB JSON structures (including deeply nested documents and arrays) into their most natural relational counterpart—child tables that relate to a primary parent table.

Our developers and data evangelists came up with a ton of resources to help you through your MongoDB ODBC connectivity journey. In this article, I will get all of this information together in one place so you have an informal guide to help you through your evaluation process.
