Custom Transformations

Turn your data conversion workflows into data transformation workflows by using FME transformers. Everyone’s data needs are unique and your data workflows should be, too!

Connect transformers any way you’d like to ensure you are generating the exact dataset you need. Set and save your parameters so they can be preset the next time you create a workflow. Every second counts!

Custom Transformations

Sleek Visual Interface

Not only is FME Desktop powerful - it’s fun and easy to use too! Drag and drop your readers, transformers, and writers in the order you’d like and connect them together.

Customize your display with options like dark-mode, styled connection lines, and bookmarks that help organize various parts of your workflow. FME Desktop is all about doing things the way you want to.

Preview Data Changes

Experimenting with data transformations can help you uncover more details about your data. Inspect and preview your data at any transformation point of your workflow directly within FME Desktop without committing to saving a new file on your computer.

This provides you with the freedom to review how the workflow changes your data without creating multiple copies of your files. You can even view dynamic changes by using Animate Mode or render 3D models to observe how and where your changes are taking place.

Reduce, Re-use, Real-Time

FME Desktop is not just for one-time data integration tasks. Build workflows that help you combat recurring data tasks and even automatically run your workflows with FME Server.

Extend what you’ve built in FME Desktop to become event-based workflows that integrate data, send notifications, or upload data to your cloud storage network. Connect your FME Desktop workflows to FME Server Automations directly with the Automations writer.

Why FME Desktop?

Best Support for Spatial Data

FME is the data integration platform with the best support for spatial data. Along with support for formats like vector shapes, point clouds, 3D, and raster imagery, FME has been built to understand coordinate systems, elevation, and other spatial attributes.

Data Validation Capabilities

The only thing worse than no data is bad data. Use data quality transformers within your workflow to validate your data at any step. If you run into any other bumps along the way, don’t worry. FME will help identify where the issue is and how to fix it.

Scalable for The Enterprise

If you need advanced levels of automation, use FME Desktop with FME Server and FME Cloud. Use these enterprise products to schedule workflows, run them in response to triggers, or turn them into self-serve integration tools.
