Data modeling is the process of documenting a complex software system design as an easily understood diagram, using text and symbols to represent the way data needs to flow. The diagram can be used as a blueprint for the construction of new software or for re-engineering a legacy application.
Data modelers often use multiple models to view the same data and ensure that all processes, entities, relationships and data flows have been identified. There are several different approaches to data modeling, including:
Conceptual Data Modeling — identifies the highest-level relationships between different entities.
Enterprise Data Modeling — similar to conceptual data modeling, but addresses the unique requirements of a specific business.
Logical Data Modeling — illustrates the specific entities, attributes and relationships involved in a business function. Serves as the basis for the creation of the physical data model.
Physical Data Modeling — represents an application and database-specific implementation of a logical data model.
What is SqlDBM?
SqlDBM — Develop Database and Data Warehouse without writing a single line of code. SqlDBM (www.sqldbm.com) offers you an easy, convenient way to design your database for Snowflake, Redshift , MS SQL Server, PostgreSQL & MySQL absolutely anywhere on any browser, working away without need for any extra database engine or database modelling tools or apps. Use SqlDBM to design and manage both large and small databases and data models on the fly. All while incorporating any needed database rules and objects such as database keys, schemas, indexes, column constraints and relationships.
SqlDBM’s core functionality is to create to create or modify your existing Database or Data Warehouse without writing a single line of code.
Along with that SqlDBM offers the following features for its users:
You can convert projects between MS SQL Server, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Snowflake and Amazon Redshift
SqlDBM enables you to visualize database design online for MS SQL Server, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Snowflake and Amazon Redshift. While creating a project in SqlDBM, you can select a type of your project in either MS SQL Server, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Snowflake or Amazon Redshift. You can even convert your project from MySQL to SQL Server, PostgreSQL, Snowflake or Amazon Redshift and vice versa.
Friendly UI for Modeling
Create tables quickly in a very intuitive way
InLine editing of tables on the diagram
Define relationships between tables easily
Copy or Move columns across tables
Zoom In/out diagrams
SqlDBM’s user interface is specifically designed as an independent platform that is ridiculously easy to use. Any proprietary commercial softwares are unnecessary for its use — all you need is a browser. But this does not mean that SqlDBM suffers reduced utility compared to the commercial-database alternatives. The interface is richly functional and includes many abilities such as drag-and-drop elements (for example when moving a column to another table), in-and-out zoom, and modification of all database objects. Here it is, at your fingertips, a rich, on-the-spot design tool that can be used anywhere and on any browser.
