Flexibility to Match Your Exact Data Integration Needs

FME offers a highly flexible solution that can evolve with your changing data integration requirements. It has several deployment options - FME Desktop, FME Server, and FME Cloud - that each have their own merits and levels of automation that are suited to different needs. And whichever product you choose, FME’s workflows are constructed with highly configurable tools, which makes it easy to test different scenarios and make adjustments to suit changing situations.

Improved Productivity through Efficiency and Automation

Author data integration workflows quickly and easily in an intuitive graphical environment. Once configured, processes run without manual interference, freeing you to work on other tasks.

FME Server and FME Cloud offer more advanced automation for enterprise-level data integration and centralization projects with options for creating data loading and distribution services, automating transformation tasks to run based on schedules or events, and taking advantage of real-time data processing.

Common Applications of FME's Data Integration Capabilities

Location can offer a powerful perspective in analytics that can have a big impact on decision making; however, spatial analytics programs like a GIS produce data that is very incompatible with more general analytics applications. FME has its roots in the spatial transformation arena and excels at integrating this unique data with other formats for analysis in practically any application.

Each data type brings with it its own unique benefits and in the case of spatial analytics, the ability to bring together GIS, CAD, BIM and other data types can produce very informative results - particularly in situations where visualization is a key factor in decision making. FME’s capabilities enable you to read, extract, transform and integrate data from various spatial formats to produce informative mashups that give an accurate picture of what is occurring.

A central repository where the members of your organization can access any data related to operations, no matter the source can be a huge asset to decision making.

FME helps with every aspect of implementing and managing a central database. Aside from providing the tools to create workflows that integrate data from practically any source and transform it to fit the model requirements of the central system, an FME Server license provides enhanced automation that makes it easy to manage the database on an ongoing basis.

Create services for users to load and download data, with FME workflows that automatically handle transformations in the background. Also, scheduling and real-time processing capabilities ensure that the database is synchronized with new data so it is always up-to-date.
