If you have applications with MongoDB NoSQL as the database, MongoDB allows you to get started at no cost with Stitch for service integrations, programmatically data handling using it’s easy to use JSON-based RESTful APIs. MongoDB Stitch provides flexibility and ease of use to developers, it provides direct access to data securely and consistently. It provides fine grained data access controls and integrations with other services.

What do you dislike?
Unlike other serverless compute like Microsoft Azure Functions or AWS Lambda, MongoDB Stitch service is delivering serverless computes but it has state.
It is not as mature as other two major serverless compute Azure Functions or AWS Lambda. Easy integration with Atlas but not so easy with AWS or Azure services.
