IBM InfoSphere Data Architect

IBM InfoSphere Data Architect is an enterprise data modeling application built on the Eclipse Integrated Development Environment (IDE) platform. Data Architect enables information designers to create both logical and physical data model diagrams, which can be used to describe a variety of applications and systems. For example, this tool can document a SQL database application, a complex website, a multi-server application platform, or a networked workflow process. Built into Data Architect are the technical specifications of a variety of popular IT platforms and services, which enables the designer to not only specify a data connection between two entities, but also save the technical requirements for making the connection functional. A good example of this feature is shown in the online Data Architect demo (see below for link) which shows a connection being made between an Oracle and an IBM DB2 database. The data model encapsulates all the information a systems engineer will need to actually build a connection between these two platforms. In addition, Data Architect provides a variety of output methods for its data models. For example a web designer can print out a site architecture report, while a database designer can actually output the SQL script necessary to build the database they just designed.
