About Hackolade Studio

Data Modeling for NoSQL Databases, Schema Design of JSON and Avro, and Visual Design of Swagger APIs.

Hackolade Studio is user-friendly and simple-to-use, yet it provides powerful visuals and graphic data modeling to smooth the onboarding of NoSQL technology. Hackolade Studio helps analysts, designers, architects, and DBAs involved with NoSQL database technology achieve greater transparency and control, resulting in reduced development time, increased application quality, and lower execution risks across the enterprise.

Agile visual data modeling for JSON, NoSQL databases and REST APIs

Hackolade Studio provides visual representation of an Entity Relationship Diagram fir hierarchical structures used in NoSQL databases, JSON, Avro, and REST APIs. These graphical representations provide the data model and schema of a NoSQL application, and the documentation of that model. The application is specifically designed around the powerful nature of JSON nested sub-objects and denormalization.

Hackolade Studio is a client tool (running on Windows, Mac, or Linux) to design and forward-engineer, or reverse-engineer and document data models and schemas. It is the only data modeling tool for MongoDB, Neo4j, Cassandra, Couchbase, Cosmos DB, DynamoDB, Elasticsearch, HBase, Hive, Google BigQuery, Firebase/Firestore, MarkLogic, etc. Hackolade also applies its easy and visual design to Avro, JSON Schema, Swagger and OpenAPI, and is rapidly adding new targets.

Leverage the power of visual data modeling software

Evaluate alternatives, recognize potential hurdles early to reduce rework later. Facilitate troubleshooting and evolution to respond to growth and customer needs.

Facilitate data governance

Compensate for the usual lack of documentation and native referential integrity of NoSQL databases.

Companies with privacy-related data in NoSQL databases can use Hackolade to demonstrate their proper handling with just a few steps: reverse-engineer their databases, identify attributes and fields concerned, generate documentation, then monitor daily that compliance is maintained.

Engage the dialog between analysts, architects, designers, developers, and DBAs

Data structures and relationships don't have to be buried in application code. They can also be available to the teams for a 360° view of the system landscape.

Hackolade Studio is a powerful tool to document your NoSQL schemas.
