Data Flow Diagram

Data flow diagram (DFD) is the part of the SSADM method (Structured Systems Analysis and Design Methodology), intended for analysis and information systems projection. Data flow diagrams are intended for graphical representation of data flows in the information system and for analysis of data processing during the structural projection. Data flow diagram often used in connection with human process and can be displayed as workflow diagram. The critical Process Flow Diagram is another flowchart technique for designing data flow in connection with organizational processes. The critical Process flow diagram may use different range of symbols than a classic workflow diagram.

Data Flow Diagram Software

When studying a business process or system that involves the transfer of data, it is common to use a data flow diagram (DFD) to visualize how that data is processed. While initially used exclusively in regards to the flow of data through a computer system, DFDs are now employed as a business modelling tool, describing business events and interactions, or physical systems involving data storage and transfer.
ConceptDraw PRO is a powerful Data Flow Diagram Software thanks to the Data Flow Diagrams solution from the Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
You can use the predesigned DFD vector objects that are grouped in 3 libraries of Data Flow Diagrams solution: Data Flow Diagrams Library; Gane-Sarson Notation Library; Yourdon and Coad Notation Library.

Structured Systems Analysis and Design Method (SSADM) with ConceptDraw PRO

Structured Systems Analysis and Design Method SSADM is the method which is used at projecting and analysis of information systems. SSADM is based on the data flow diagrams. At the description of data flows out of the system and into the system DFD, which denote boundaries of the system, are used.

ERD Symbols and Meanings

Crow's foot notation is used in Barker's Notation, Structured Systems Analysis and Design Method (SSADM) and information engineering. Crow's foot diagrams represent entities as boxes, and relationships as lines between the boxes. Different shapes at the ends of these lines represent the cardinality of the relationship.
The Chen's ERD notation is still used and is considered to present a more detailed way of representing entities and relationships.
To create an ERD, software engineers mainly turn to dedicated drawing software, which contain the full notation resources for their specific database design - ERD symbols and meanings. CS Odessa has released an all-inclusive Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution for their powerful drawing program, ConceptDraw PRO.

Storage area networks (SAN). Computer and Network Examples

A Storage area network (SAN) is a dedicated network that provides access to data storage and operations only on the block level. SAN usually has own network of storage devices/elements and disk arrays that are connected with each other and to a remote data-sharing network. SANs are widely used for enhancing the storage devices (optical jukeboxes, disk arrays, tape libraries) that are accessible for networked servers.
This example was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. It shows the hybrid of Storage area network (SAN) and Network Attached Storage (NAS) technologies.
