Hackolade, a firm specializing in data modeling for NoSQL and multi-model databases, has released its data modeling software tool for the Couchbase NoSQL database community. The 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 the solution is 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. 

A data model created by 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 or collaborative and is quite risky. Hackolade’s new software tool solves all these problems for NoSQL applications.

Hackolade’s data modeling software tool for Couchbase is now available for purchase and can be downloaded from the company’s website. Licensing costs $499 U.S. per desktop; concurrent/floating licenses are also possible upon request. Hackolade is also available as a free community edition and a free 30-day trial.
