Importance of Database Design Diagrams Explained

Database design illustrates a detailed data model of a database also known as the database schema. It shows the various tables that are in the system and the relationships between those tables.

Creately supports creating entity relationship diagrams among many other diagram types. You simply need one tool for the whole process.
