ConceptDraw DIAGRAM ER Diagram Tool

ER-diagram is a tool used for database modeling which allows to determine data and relationships among the data. These diagrams help to detail data storages and to document all the properties of designed system. ER-diagram contains entities, attributes of the entities and the relationships between them. Chen’s notation and Crow’s foot notation are commonly used to represent elements in ER-model. To create such diagram you should use specific software, such as Entity-Relationship Diagram solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM.
ConceptDraw ER Diagram Tool works across any platform, meaning you never have to worry about compatibility again. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM allows you to make Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) on PC or macOS operating systems.

Example of DFD for Online Store (Data Flow Diagram)

Data flow diagrams (DFDs) reveal relationships among and between the various components in a program or system. DFDs are an important technique for modeling a system’s high-level detail by showing how input data is transformed to output results through a sequence of functional transformations.
Example of DFD for Online Store shows the Data Flow Diagram for online store and interactions between the Visitors, Customers and Sellers, as well as Website Information and User databases.

ER Diagram for Cloud Computing

The entity–relationship (ER) model is a data model that lets graphically represent the information system and depict the relationships between people, objects, concepts, places, and events within a given system. It is also convenient to use the ER Diagram for Cloud computing representation and description the Cloud computing architecture, design them with pleasure using the extensive tools of the Cloud Computing Diagrams solution from the Computers and Network area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

How To Make a Crow's Foot ER Diagram

The Crow's Foot ERD notation is often used in software engineering and database design. The originator of Crow’s Foot notation was Gordon Everest, who offered the idea of how to visually represent the different types of relationships that can exist between objects in an entity relationship diagram (ERD). The Crow’s Foot notation is often used in ER models to how a particular table data can reference data in other tables within a database. The free Crow's Foot Notation solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM offers a complete vector stencil library containing full standardized symbols of Crow's Foot notation.

How to Create an Entity-Relationship Diagram

ERD (entity relationship diagram) is used to show the logical structure of databases. It represents the interrelationships between components of a database (entities). Entity relationship diagrams are widely used in software engineering. Using ERD software engineers can control every aspect of database development. ER diagram can be used as a guide for testing and communicating before the release of the software product. ERD displays data as entities that are connected with connections that show the relationships between entities. There are some ERD notations used by databases developers for representing the relationships between the data objects. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM and its ERD solution allow you to build ERD diagram of any notation.

How To Make Chen ER Diagram

The Chen ERD notation model is a popular standard and is widely used worldwide in database and software design. The entity-relationship model proposed by Dr. Chen is constructed using a natural view of how the real world comprises entities and the relationships that exist with these identified entities. It was designed to leverage the advantages of the three entity-data models (network model, relationship model, entity model). The free Chen Notation solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM provides vector stencil libraries with full standardized Chen notation included.
This SWOT matrix diagram example was created on the base of article "An Easy Way To Jumpstart Your Strategic Plan: SWOT" by Leslie Wolf from the website of the California Digital Library, the University of California. "Strategic planning doesn’t have to be a daunting and lengthy process. The goal is really a simple one: to help you understand your world and build a road map to guide your efforts. ...
This analysis tool can help you focus your attention on the specific success factors that are right for your team.
The tool is called a SWOT analysis. SWOT stands for Strengths and Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats. Here’s what it means:
(1) Strengths are those positive internal attributes that strengthen your business or team. You can develop plans to capitalize on those strengths.
(2) Weaknesses are those negative internal attributes that are working against your success. You can shore up those weaknesses so they don’t stop your success.
(3) Opportunities are those external conditions that can have a positive effect on your goals. These opportunities can point you in the right direction.
(4) Threats are those external conditions that can have a negative effect on your goals. These threats will affect you less if you can identify and minimize them. ...
We thought it would be helpful to show you a sample SWOT analysis for a business you can easily visualize: a small independent bookstore in a university town. The store owner brought the team together to think about how the bookstore could survive during the continuing financial downturn. After an hour of brainstorming, this is the SWOT analysis they developed." [ cdlinfo/ 2010/ 09/ 29/ an-easy-way-to-jumpstart-your-strategic-plan-swot/ ]
The matrix diagram example "SWOT analysis for a small independent bookstore" was created using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with the SWOT Analysis solution from the Management area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
