Hackolade, a Brussels-based provider of data modeling for NoSQL and multi-model databases, has announced the availability of Hackolade version 1.7, a new release of its data modeling software, to support both MongoDB version 3.4 and MongoDB Atlas, its cloud-hosted database as a service.
According to Hackolade, version 1.7 supports MongoDB’s latest features including read-only views, a highly-requested feature from MongoDB users. This new Hackolade version also supports collation, indexing, and sharding parameters.
Businesses around the world are making decisions based on information stored in MongoDB, and with data being one of their key corporate assets, data modeling becomes critical to understanding this data, its interrelationships, and its rules, said Alan Chhabra, vice president of Worldwide Partners at MongoDB, noting that Hackolade version 1.7 helps MongoDB users by making its structure transparent. Technically speaking, added Pascal Desmarets, CEO of Hackolade, the company is introducing a new type of entity in Hackolade’s Entity Relationship diagram. Reverse-engineering of existing views is supported in addition to the ability to dynamically generate the creation scripts in the forward-engineering use case.
The application is designed for functional analysts, designers, architects, and database administrators. This is important, the company says, because 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, due to its user-friendly graphical interface, and flexible HTML model documentation.
