gravity9 Announce Strategic Partnership with MongoDB


24 Feb 2021 | Emma Benham

We’re delighted to announce that digital consultancy gravity9 and MongoDB form strategic partnership as they seek to accelerate client’s modernisation of applications.

With organisations seeking to accelerate their journey to digital, moving away from disparate legacy systems and databases, there is an increase in the shift to cloud-first platforms. However, to realise the full benefits of cloud, the old lift and shift approach provides minimal return on investment, drastically reducing the operational and commercial benefits of cloud.

The new strategic relationship between gravity9 and MongoDB solidifies the ability for clients to fully realise the true benefits of cloud through the modernisation of applications at pace.


Why Partner?

With a shared mission to accelerate the journey to digital and a modern view of how this can be achieved gravity9 and MongoDB have many synergies as well as a unified approach to working. This means there is a single vision; two teams, combining vision with an innovative approach to architecture design and build, through a proven methodology. This historical relationship and understanding between the two teams allows the client to benefit from an innovative approach, modern technology, greater flexibility and, ultimately, a lower cost solution. As such clients working with gravity9 and MongoDB in partnership are able to rapidly utilise the full benefit of cloud.

The strategic partnership with MongoDB brings to the market a more flexible digital solution that will enable clients to get products to market quicker and allow them to become nimbler, swiftly taking advantage of changes in the market” says Andy Ross, Partner at gravity9.


Solution Areas

Essential to helping clients accelerate their journey to digital is the modernisation of applications to take advantage of the cloud. The approach gravity9 take to application modernisation means they have become experts at quickly and innovatively creating Single View solutions. These are either an end in themselves or the launchpad for a host of rapid digital capabilities that can be quickly built on top.

“We combine our vast experience, uniting art and science to build custom single view solutions that respond to the objectives of all departments. MongoDB’s modern technology enables us to combine any data set indexing, and aggregating capabilities to meet specific requirements” says Noel Ady, gravity9 Founding Partner.

The decoupling of legacy digital applications enables greater flexibility to modernise the tech solution, again creating a nimble, lower cost solution which ultimately provides greater benefit to both the client and the customer. gravity9 adopts a logical incremental evolution approach to digital decoupling, enabling selected services or infrastructure to be evolved or replaced as required, all while operating under a single umbrella solution to eliminate any disruption or lag in operations.

“Every organization in every industry depends on applications for a competitive advantage. Recent events have only accelerated long-term trends to digital and now more than ever, businesses are looking to modernize their data in the cloud,” said Alan Chhabra, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Partners, MongoDB. “As part of our Modernization Toolkit initiative, we’re very excited to enter into a strategic partnership with gravity9 and help customers across the UK innovate, scale and thrive with MongoDB.”



The strategic partnership between gravity9 and MongoDB is formed with the vision of offering clients a flexible approach to modernising their technology that benefits from the proven relationship between the two organisations, meaning results and the value is rapidly realised.
