Data Flow Diagrams
With ConceptDraw DIAGRAM you can design professional flow chart diagrams, as well as:
- Unified Modeling Language (UML) diagrams
- Entity Relationship Diagrams (ERD)
- Data Flows Diagrams (DFD)
- Structured Systems Analysis and Design Method (SSADM)
- Windows and Macintosh Graphics User Interface (GUI) design
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM enables you to quickly create data flow diagrams that include data storage, external entities, functional transforms, data flows, and control transforms and signals.
All information systems manage the flow of data introduced into the system. The visualization of data flows represents the activity of data moving and transforming as it moves through a defined business system.
Complex information systems contain data flows which can be represented as a data flow diagram. Data flow diagrams enable you to visualize the data flow as well as it provides you the ability to analyze and make modifications to business systems.
With ConceptDraw DIAGRAM it is easy to create a data flow diagram from the supplied shapes located in the Object Library. The Object Library contains a large number of shapes that can be used to represent data flows, processes, data storage, objects and other data flow entities.
Solutions from the Software Development Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park extend ConceptDraw DIAGRAM (or later) comes with hundreds of work templates and an extensive range of libraries that give you the ability to represent your models. With ConceptDraw DIAGRAM you can quickly create a diagram and then export it to many graphic formats, including Microsoft PowerPoint.

Near field communication (NFC) is a wireless communication technology that allows smartphones and other similar devices to establish the radio communication with each other on the short distance around 10 centimeters (4 inches).
This example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park and shows the Near field communication (NFC) network.

This template shows the Context Diagram. It was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software using the Block Diagrams Solution from the “Diagrams” area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
The context diagram graphically identifies the system. external factors, and relations between them. It’s a high level view of the system. The context diagrams are widely used in software engineering and systems engineering for designing the systems that process the information.

If you need to describe some process, diagramming is a perfect tool for almost any imaginable purpose. The set of the most commonly used flow charts symbols is quite wide and includes symbols for operations, processes, data inputs and outputs. You can see the full list of all the symbols used for flowcharting in Flowcharts solution from Diagrams area in ConceptDraw Solution Park.
A flow chart is often used for visual representation of a sequential process flow. The flowchart approach to any process is to divide it into some sequential actions. What makes a flow chart so popular and clear to make out is the set of standard flowchart symbols that has the same reading independently from processes described with their applying. The current drawing represents the vector library containing the pack of standard flowchart symbols. This library is supplied with ConceptDraw Flowcharts solution.

The Cloud Computing Architecture is the structure of the system, which is based on the needs of end-user and includes the set of components and subcomponents required for cloud computing, among them cloud resources, services, middleware, software components, front-end platforms (cloud clients), cloud-based back end platforms (servers, storage), and a network (Internet, Intranet, Intercloud). When designing the Cloud Computing Architecture diagrams, the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software advises to turn attention for the powerful Cloud Computing Diagrams solution from the extensive Computers and Network area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

While creating flowcharts and process flow diagrams, you should use special objects to define different statements, so anyone aware of flowcharts can get your scheme right. There is a short and an extended list of basic flowchart symbols and their meaning. Basic flowchart symbols include terminator objects, rectangles for describing steps of a process, diamonds representing appearing conditions and questions and parallelograms to show incoming data.
This diagram gives a general review of the standard symbols that are used when creating flowcharts and process flow diagrams. The practice of using a set of standard flowchart symbols was admitted in order to make flowcharts and other process flow diagrams created by any person properly understandable by other people. The flowchart symbols depict different kinds of actions and phases in a process. The sequence of the actions, and the relationships between them are shown by special lines and arrows. There are a large number of flowchart symbols. Which of them can be used in the particular diagram depends on its type. For instance, some symbols used in data flow diagrams usually are not used in the process flowcharts. Business process system use exactly these flowchart symbols.

A Data Flow Diagram (DFD) is a graphical technique which allows effectively model and analyze the information processes and systems. The ability to fast and easy create the DFDs is made possible with Data Flow Diagrams solution from the Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. For designing the Data Flow Diagrams are used simple DFD flowchart symbols which are connected each other by arrows depicting the data flow from one step to another.

Network Topology in communication networks, a topology is a usually schematic description of the arrangement of a network, including its nodes and connecting lines. There are two ways of defining network geometry: the physical topology and the logical topology.
Network Topology Mapper offers extensive drawing tools professional-looking network diagrams quickly and easily allowing you to clearly represent and communicate network architecture, topology, and design to engineers, stakeholders and end-users.
