See the feature comparison matrix below for a full listing of the differences between the Community, Personal, Read-Only Viewer, Professional, and Workgroup editions.

Workgroup Edition

The Workgroup Edition of Hackolade Studio includes all of the features of the Professional edition, plus a native integration with Git repositories for your data models. The Workgroup Edition makes it easy for users who are not so familiar with Git to leverage the tremendous power of this popular tool, and enable versioning, branching, change tracking, collaboration, peer review, and other related capabilities. You will find more information in this section of our online documentation.

Professional Edition

The Professional Edition of Hackolade Studio includes all the features of the Community and Personal editions, and much more! With no limit on the size of models, this premium version produces documentation in different flexible formats.

Key additional features include forward- and reverse-engineering functions tightly integrated with all our different target technologies, plus our powerful Command Line Interface, and other advanced features. Maintain your schema documentation in sync with your production instance, thanks to the ability to compare different versions of your model.

The Professional does NOT include the Collibra integration features, or the Workgroup-specific features such as the Git integration. These options require the purchase of an optional upgrade. Make sure to consult the full comparison of editions below.

Personal Edition

The Personal Edition of Hackolade Studio is ideal for startups and individual developers. It includes all the features of the Community edition plus very flexible HTML documentation to share models with team members, and the capability to model an unlimited number of objects. You may also view model differences and suggest the denormalization of existing relational models.

The Personal Edition does NOT include the advanced features of the Professional edition, such as Forward- and Reverse-Engineering functions for each database target, Collibra or Git integration, and some advanced features. Make sure to consult the full comparison below.

Viewer Edition

With the Viewer Edition of Hackolade Studio, you can socialize data models with business users. The read-only viewer allows navigation through models for consultation purposes only -- no creation or editing, no forward-engineering (except JSON Schema and Excel) or reverse-engineering. When connected to Git repositories, also allows pull operations and commenting on change requests.

Community Edition

The Community Edition of Hackolade Studio is completely FREE. It is an entry-level NoSQL document data modeling software with a subset of the Hackolade Professional edition. It is a great way for students and those new to modeling to get started with an industry-leading data modeling tool.

The Community Edition offers many of the core features of data modeling with a limit of 50 model objects. It includes Entity Relationship diagrams and the hierarchical schema view of JSON collections, documentation, and more. It does NOT include the more advanced features such as Forward- and Reverse-Engineering functions, HTML documentation, Collibra or Git integration, and some advanced features.
