Transform Your Data

Turn Raw Data Into Anything

FME lets you mash up data and output whatever you need, however it's needed. Maybe you need to take satellite imagery, overlay incidents reported on Twitter, and create a real-time map. Whatever you need to do, FME can help.

Automate Your Workflows

Turn Manual Tasks Into Automated Workflows

All FME workflows are reusable. Even better, they can be set up to automatically run whenever new data is received, or scheduled to run at any time interval – in the middle of the night, once a month, or every second. The choice is yours.

Keep Data In Sync Across the Enterprise

Many tools can sync data, so what sets FME apart? Yes, FME can easily handle large volumes of complex, real-time data. But its true strength is that it does all of the above while letting people continue to work uninterrupted in their preferred environment.
