ConceptDraw PRO offers task-specific templates, libraries of flowcharting shapes, smart connectors etc. to illustrate complex processes, procedures and information exchange.

Database and ERD diagramming

Thanks to an extensive set of library objects such as entities, links, items, attributes, users, types, captions, inheritance, references, boundaries, events, clouds etc ConceptDraw PRO is a perfect tool for database design and ERD diagramming.

You can also use ConceptDraw PRO to draw Chen ERD, Database model diagram, Express-G, Martin ERD, ORD Diagram and a lot more.

Sample Database Layout

With ConceptDraw PRO you can visually design schemas for leading clients/servers and desktop databases. By graphically showing the relationships between information tables stored in the database a database diagram helps to ensure that the database you are designing is accurate, complete and efficient. ConceptDraw PRO allows you to visually create Entity Relationship diagrams (ERD) for various database systems.

The software product supports ODBC-compatible databases (Oracle, MS SQL, InterBase, MySQL, MS Access, Firebird and others). The built-in scripting language allows to connect to ODBC-compatible databases and automatically generate the database structure (reverse engineering of the database structure).

Moreover, data flow between tables can also be easily described by creating appropriate Data Flow Diagrams (DFD).

Cross-DBMS target compatibility allows you to design once and use for all.

Creating Visualization Solutions

Using the built-in scripting language, database connectivity, shape parameter table, support of shape custom properties, XML format allows to use ConceptDraw to visualize data from various applications and data sources. With the introduction of ConceptDraw Basic technology ConceptDraw becomes one of the most powerful platforms for your custom visual solutions.
