Entity Relationship Software

Entity Relationship Diagram

ERD is a major data modelling tool which can help to organize your project's data into the entities and to define the relashionships between these entities.

It is convenient to design ER Diagrams using ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software extended with the Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) Solution from the Software Development Area for ConceptDraw Solution Park. This solution supports Chen's and Crow’s Foot notations that are often used to describe database structure.

In a Chen's notation, entities are represented by rectangles with the entities names inside and relationships are represented by diamonds. The attributes are drawn as ovals and are connected with a line to exactly one entity or relationship set.

Example 1. Entity Relationship Software. Chen's notation

Another type of notation is known as Crow's Foot notation. Fundamentally it is very similar to Chen's notation and differs by designations, are used the boxes to represent entities and the lines between them to represent relationships. The attributes of entity are drawn in the box that represents this entity.

Cisco Network Templates →

A network diagram is used to depict the topology of a computer network or, talking more broadly, any telecommunications network in general. In order for a computer network diagram to be understandable, clearly identifiable icons must be used for each network appliance. Cisco network templates, also called Network Topology Icons, is a brand of symbols developed and used by Cisco. Since Cisco Systems is the largest networking company in the world, it's list of networking symbols is widely recognized and exhaustive. The diagram of the ISG network topology diagram illustrates the Cisco Intelligent Services Gateway. Since Cicso company offers service providers a possibility to provide control of state and resources in a broadband network, network architects and engineers need some facilities to create ISG topology diagrams.This Cisco ISG network diagram was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using its solution for Cisco network diagrams. The vector library of this solution comprises over 500 icons of Cisco hardware and accessories. They can be used to design LAN, WAN, ISG and other Cisco equipped network diagrams.Cisco Network Templates

Data Flow Diagram Software →

When studying a business process or system involving the transfer of data, it is common to use a Data Flow Diagram (DFD) to visualize how data are processed. Being initially used exclusively in regards to the flow of data through a computer system, now DFDs are employed as the business modeling tools. They are applied to describe the business events and interactions, or physical systems involving data storage and transfer. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a powerful Data Flow Diagram software thanks to the Data Flow Diagrams solution from the Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.Data Flow Diagram Software *
