Rather than adding all tables at once, create meaningful diagrams from data catalog with drag & drop.
Dataedo suggests you entities that you can add to diagram next so or you can easily search the entire catalog for tables so creation of diagrams is quick and pleasant.
Dataedo allows you to understand, document and visualize relationships between tables (foreign keys), regardless of the actual schema implementation and constraints.
Dataedo reads foreign key constraints from DBMS and adds table relationships to the diagram automatically.
It is easy to add relationships in Dataedo data model repository for foreign keys with no FK constraints in the DBMS.
Build easily multiple small diagrams to really explain data entities and relationships.
Hide unnecessary details from diagrams to show only what tells the story.
Tables and columns can have confusing and misleading names. Dataedo allows you to provide aliases for names to add meaning on top of physical model.

Visualize database models for the entire development team as you build it.
"We can group different database objects together to present different aspects of functionality. The ER diagrams are invaluable when it comes to this. This is a very well thought out feature. Above all, we use the export to HTML all the time. I’m extremely passionate about properly documenting our databases and managing our information effectively, and it is done thanks to Dataedo."MINDBODY
"I had two requirements for an ERD Tool. Pull live objects from SQL, and allow editing relationships without modifying any live constraints. Dataedo does this perfectly. And I really like the export utility, as the PDFs fit right into our document libraries."
"We jump started all of our Data Governance efforts using the tool. We documented key databases quickly and easily and published the information to our analyst community."
"Dataedo is improving my work a lot. With documentation, the learning curve is smaller and I can have more time to work."
"Thanks to Dataedo I spent more time figuring out the connection string to the instance than I did running the report. It was a great experience."
"It helps us document the 'why' we built it the way we did. The tool is very intuitive to work with, and we use it continuously."
"Dataedo is an easy to use facility for managing basic metadata centrally and producing enhanced data dictionaries."
"Dataedo helps developers to find descriptions for data very quickly. Seeing documentation progress with every release is really helpful."
