Software and Database Design with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM

Design and document development of projects using a wide range of pre-drawn shapes, smart connectors and flowchart symbols. Develop visualization solutions with the help of the built-in scripting language.

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a perfect tool for:

  • Designing and planning tasks such as:
    • UML Diagramming
    • Designing and prototyping Graphical User Interface (GUI)
    • Flowcharts, Data flow diagrams
    • Database and ERD Diagramming (Chen ERD, Database Model diagram, Express-G, Martin ERD, ORM Diagrams and more)
    • SSADM Diagrams, Booch Diagrams, Nassi-Shneiderman Diagrams
  • Developing Visualization Solutions
  • Project Planning (Gantt Charts, Timelines, Project Schedules)

Designing and prototyping Graphical User Interface (GUI).

Mac Interface Sample

Thanks to Mac OS and Windows library interface elements ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a perfect visual designing tool for project managers and software engineers that make designing and prototyping of dialog boxes, user interfaces a lot easier.

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM has a dizzying array of widget libraries for GUI prototyping that include all graphics for icons, menus, buttons, selection boxes, dialogs, forms, scroll bars, and other design elements... read more

Flowcharts and Data flow diagrams

Data Flow Sample

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a perfect tool for drawing various types of flowcharts and dataflow diagrams such as audit flowcharts, data flow diagrams, cause & effect diagrams, cross-functional flowcharts, Opportunity Flowchart, Deployment Flowchart and Process Flowchart.

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM 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 DIAGRAM is a perfect tool for database design and ERD diagramming.

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

Sample Database Layout

With ConceptDraw DIAGRAM 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 DIAGRAM 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.
