List of data modeling and database design tools.
Data modeling is the process of creating and analyzing data models for resources stored in a database. The Data Model is an abstract model that standardizes the data description, data semantic, and consistency constraints of data. Its main purpose is to represent the types of data within a system, the relationships between objects, and its attributes. The data model helps to understand what data is needed and how data should be organized. It is like a blueprint for an architect to better understand what is being created.
