Today, AWS introduced NoSQL Workbench for Amazon DynamoDB to help developers build scalable, high-performance data models and to simplify query development and testing. NoSQL Workbench is a free, client-side application available for Windows and macOS.

DynamoDB is a fully managed NoSQL database service that provides fast and predictable performance with seamless scalability. Designing scalable, flexible data models is essential to using nonrelational databases. However, designing data models can be challenging, particularly when building new applications whose data access patterns are not yet known. NoSQL Workbench helps simplify and accelerate the process of building data models by providing a rich graphical user interface to visualize data and perform DynamoDB operations.

With NoSQL Workbench, developers can easily build new data models from scratch, or import and modify existing data models. Developers also can visualize data models based on their applications' access patterns. NoSQL Workbench also provides query development features to view, explore, and query datasets as well as a structured operation builder to perform data-plane operations and generate sample code in multiple languages.  

NoSQL Workbench for Amazon DynamoDB is now available in preview. To get started, download NoSQL Workbench. To learn more, see NoSQL Workbench for Amazon DynamoDB. For questions and support, see the DynamoDB forum
