MDB also raised its FY22 earnings and revenue guidance for the second time this fiscal year. Although MDB guided adjusted earnings for Q3 (Oct) below consensus, it raised its FY21 earnings guidance for the second straight quarter.MDB in the past has guided conservatively on earnings for its next quarter. In the past three quarters the company guide below consensus. MDB is benefitimng from the need to organize non-structured data continuing to increase.

Non-structured query language (NoSQL) does have a serious limitation over traditional structured query language (SQL) in that analytical tools cannot be applied to NoSQL formatted data. In saying that there is plenty of data for which insights are not needed. The cost of change is large for businesses to move from NoSQL databases once adopted. It is both expensive and time-consuming and runs the risk of data loss.

The huge jump in the share price implies MDB's Q2 earnings comfort investors that the rise of NoSQL is embeded in the modern tech world and that MDB looks best positioned to continue taking advantage of this trend. MongoDB is riding the cloud migration spree triggered by the virus outbreak, with data playing a significant role in digital transformation currently.
