According to a recent press release, “Hackolade, the pioneer for data modeling for NoSQL and multi-model databases, today announced the introduction of the first data modeling software tool for the Couchbase NoSQL database community. This software is compatible with Couchbase versions 4.0 through the latest 4.6 release. Standard features of Hackolade, already popular with NoSQL database users, have been adapted to support the specifications of Couchbase. Users for the new release of Hackolade vary depending on the size of the development project, but it’s typically best suited for larger organizations with IT architecture and data governance departments engaged with complex projects and applications. The tool is designed for functional analysts, designers, architects, and database administrators (DBAs). Typically, only developers are comfortable looking at application code to figure out how data storage is organized, but other project stakeholders also need to understand the underlying data structure, which is now possible with Hackolade.”
The release goes on, “A data model created by using Hackolade is the visual blueprint for an application. The output of Hackolade is the equivalent of the CAD printout produced by an architect before building or renovating a house. The blueprint enables a discussion with the client about how rooms in the house will be laid out. It also allows the architect to discuss the plan with the building contractor. And it is the reference document for the bricklayer. Without Hackolade, it’s as if the architect would only have words to describe the house design to the customer and to the bricklayer, which is obviously not productive, not collaborative, and quite risky. Hackolade’s new software tool solves all these problems for NoSQL applications.”
