Producing Apple IMDF Datasets with FME
The conversion of a 2D floor plan into Apple’s indoor format IMDF can be challenging. The presentation shares the experiences and challenges in creating an indoor model from a CAD drawing of a hospital building. Using the FME process to automate some of the necessary work that otherwise would have been needed to be realized manually provides huge benefits in time and budget as in data quality. As a second approach shows the building of a campus viewer based on ArcGIS with workplace information and the integration with office applications.

Application Integration: A Key Component of YOUR Digital Transformation
Asset and operations management software collect all sorts of data and information about your vehicles, equipment, facilities, and infrastructure - location, original purchase cost, current condition, and more! Coupled with preventative and emergency maintenance and predictive planning of your capital budget, the accumulated data is invaluable to your organization for analysis and reporting, as well as to let requestors know the current status of work-in-progress. But, this amazing software also requires a lot of care and feeding of curated data from your financial system, your customer service applications, sensor and SCADA networks, and your space management and GIS tools. How can you ensure that all systems are up-to-date with the latest data? And that all users have the data they need at their fingertips?
YOUR challenge now is that users’ expectations of their digital experiences at work are based on their experiences as consumers. You are using systems, like asset and operations management software, to simplify your line-of-business applications. Digital transformation of your business also implies the connection of data in various systems into cross-departmental workflows. You want to transform inefficiency into innovation and empower your teams to make decisions based on up-to-date information.
BUT, your challenge to implement is that your users’ requirements are often vague – and loaded with high expectations. Your use cases are unclear – is there a clear business benefit to connect to other systems? The lack of clarity leads to RISK, which is characterized by higher costs and uncertainty in delivery for your system implementation or upgrades.
Enter Application Integration… This talk will outline what Application Integration is, the various models for integrating your applications. We will introduce Integration Patterns that are more accessible now - even to smaller operators. And we will propose a process for integration and your realized outcome.

Working with Partners' CRM Data
As a company, you may work with several partners. Here at Safe, we've been working on a project to gather Customer Management System (CRM) data from our Partners and consolidate it into our Partner Management System (PRM), Salesforce. The hurdle is, each partner may have a different CRM – meaning different systems, file exports, and ultimately different schemas.
Using the FME Platform, Kailin and Kezia developed a process that reformats partner CRM data, validates, and submit records to a Salesforce endpoint. This project will help us have a holistic view of our sales prospects across the globe.
