An intro to Studio 3T, a MongoDB IDE

A good indication of whether a technology is in the plateau of productivity in Gartner’s hype cycle is when someone asks ”Is MongoDB dead?” on that bastion of, um, sane discussion, Quora. A second good indication is when there are productivity tools and at least a nascent third-party market around your technology. A third indication is when a third party creates an IDE for it: The growing third-party market is a key indication that MongoDB has moved from mere maturity to one of the dominant players in this market.

Enter Studio 3T, a small European firm with its own sea mammal mascot and a reputation for being “the MongoDB GUI.” Its eponymous product is the successor to its MongoDB Chef. According to Studio 3T marketing chief Richard Collins, the company direction is as a full-fledged IDE for MongoDB.

Studio 3T lets team collaborate on MongoDB development and administration activities across roles and skill levels, from the developer to the analyst to the DBA. Studio 3T also lets these users use the technologies they’re more comfortable with, whether it be visual query building, MongoDB queries, or the inevitable SQL.

With that said, Studio 3T is not a full-fledged BI tool. (SlamData, an InfoWorld Bossies award winner, is a better tool for that purpose.)
