Design Database with Professional ERD Software

Create and communicate visual database design with an ERD tool.

Entity Relationship Diagram

Entity Relationship Diagram (ERD), a database design tool that provides graphical representation of database tables, their columns and inter-relationships. ERD is the most popular database design tool. A well-developed ERD can provide sufficient information for database administrator to follow when developing and maintaining database.

Table Record Editor

Enter sample records for entities in ERD. The sample records help readers understand the format of data that will be inserted. Besides, the records will be output in data specification. You can also insert them into database upon database generation.

Database View Editor*

A database view is the result of a query on the data stored in a database. You can select columns, specify where and join statements to a view and present the data as if the data were coming from one single table. With Visual Paradigm's ERD tool, you can edit database view in a visual editor.

Ad-Hoc SQL Statements Generator

Ad-Hoc SQL Statements Generator

Run checks on Data Definition Language (DDL) or Data Manipulation Language (DML) statements for entities. You can select entities to generate SQL, or to generate SQL for the entire ERD.

Construct Conceptual, Logical and Physical ER Model

Conceptual, logical and physical ERD model the three different phases of a database design. While the conceptual and logical database design model database tables and their properties in a high level view, the physical ERD models the actual database schema, which involves the detailed entities' structure and their inter-relationship.
