SAN DIEGO--()--SqlDBM today announced that it has been selected as winner of the “Database Modeling Solution of the Year” award in the 4th annual Data Breakthrough Awards program conducted by Data Breakthrough, an independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies, and products in the global data technology market today.

SqlDBM provides a breakthrough browser-based, fully hosted data modeling tool that lets organizations model and explore their databases online without writing a single line of code. By creating a cloud-native modeling solution that is accessible to anyone in an organization, SqlDBM has designed a user experience that is intuitive and usable for everyone, not just developers.

While providing all the technical modeling features that developers need, SqlDBM also makes it easy for business teams and analysts to view diagrams at any level of detail, as well as access documentation and governance information from a single place. Additionally, as a fully hosted SaaS tool, SqlDBM keeps projects safely stored and backed up in the cloud (including unlimited versioning) with nothing to install or configure.

Furthermore, SqlDBM provides bi-weekly releases that occur transparently and with no downtime for users. Being cloud-native also allows SqlDBM to easily integrate with existing tools in the modern BI stack. Current integrations include Confluence for sharing the latest model designs with the entire organization, Jira for associating project changes to workflow tasks, and an API that opens the door for customers to access their data models and plug into existing CICD and deployment workflows programmatically.

“It’s an honor for me to accept this award from Data Breakthrough on behalf of the entire SqlDBM team. We set out to propel a seamless user experience through intuitive features that empower enterprise teams without overwhelming them with extensive and complicated data technology,” said Anna Abramova, Head of Growth at SqlDBM. “Some of the most frequent users in SqlDBM are viewers, not modelers—everyday domain experts such as data stewards, analysts, domain owners, and project managers. By making data models easy to access and understand, SqlDBM ensures that everyone in the organization can orient themselves quickly and get up-to-speed, even in the most complex business and data landscapes.”

The annual Data Breakthrough Awards is the premier awards program founded to recognize the data technology innovators, leaders and visionaries from around the world in a range of categories, including Data Analytics, Big Data, Business Intelligence, Data Storage and many more. The 4th annual Data Breakthrough Award program attracted more than 2,000 nominations from across the globe.

“Once confined to a core set of experts specializing in database architecture, data modeling is enjoying a healthy revival as teams realize that it does not have to be an arcane art hidden behind prohibitively complex tooling. Additionally, as data warehousing moves to the cloud with platforms like Snowflake and Azure Synapse, it no longer makes sense to model using complex, desktop/server-based tools,” said James Johnson, Managing Director, Data Breakthrough. “By making modeling easy to access and understand, SqlDBM returns the practice to its original roots: aligning the data model to the business model by giving teams a visual toolkit to foster collaboration and dialogue between them. Congratulations on this incredible achievement and winning the ‘Database Modeling Solution of the Year’ award.”
