Bonava & Sweco

Bonava needed to migrate teraybtes of files from various legacy systems in eight countries and multiple languages into A360.

They worked with Sweco to use FME to automate the migration. They used its graphical user interface and library of pre-built transformers – including the AutodeskA360Connector, build using the Autodesk Forge API – to create the three workflows they required, without writing code. The first workflow restructured data file systems into a single A360-compatible file structure. The next uploaded the data to the cloud in the correct order for A360 to recognize iterations of the same file. The final workflow verified the success of data uploads and provided quality control.

Bonava now has a unified system on the Autodesk A360 cloud data sharing platform.

Bonava is a subsidiary of the leading Northern European residential land developer NCC. Sweco’s vision is to become Europe’s most respected knowledge company in the fields of engineering, environmental technology and architecture.

“My colleagues heard ‘data migration’ and immediately thought of FME.” — Gabriel Hirsch, Sweco
