About Kexi

Kexi is a integrated environment for managing data. It helps in creating database schema, inserting, querying and processing data. As Kexi is a real member of the KDE and KOffice projects, it integrates fluently into both. It is designed to be fully usable also without KDE on Unix, MS Windows and Mac OS X platforms.
