Creating data flow diagram with free templates and examples. Data flow diagram has never been easier.

Data Flow Diagram

A data flow diagram (DFD) is a two-dimensional graphical representation of the flow of data through an information system. DFD helps us in identifying existing business processes. DFD enables you to represent the processes in your information system from the viewpoint of data and visualize how the system operates, what the system accomplishes and how it will be implemented, when it is refined with further specification.
Data flow diagrams are used by systems analysts to design information-processing systems but also as a way to model whole organizations. There are two types of DFDs, logical data flow diagrams and physical data flow diagrams, both of which support a top-down approach to systems analysis. DFDs can also be grouped together to represent a sub-system of the system being analyzed.
