Partner – DBSchema – NPI EA – (tag = SQL)
DbSchema is a super-flexible database designer, which can take you from designing the DB with your team all the way to safely deploying the schema.
The way it does all of that is by using a design model, a database-independent image of the schema, which can be shared in a team using GIT and compared or deployed on to any database.
And, of course, it can be heavily visual, allowing you to interact with the database using diagrams, visually compose queries, explore the data, generate random data, import data or build HTML5 database reports.
