The Language of Data Modeling
If the database that is being modeled is done correctly, the data model is often the best formof documentation a system gets. It gives you an overview of the foundation of the system, and pro-grammers and end users alike can read it to get an idea of how their system works and how tables are related. Best of all, using a good tool, you can practically design the basics of a system live, right with your clients as they describe what you want (hopefully, someone else would be gathering other requirements that are not data structure related).
