How FME Helps Federal Governments

No matter what department you are a part of in the federal government, you are bound to run into data issues. Whether it’s big data storage or cloud technology, FME can help! By creating an optimal back-end data storage system, you will be able to deliver intelligence to anyone, anywhere.

Deliver Data and Reports

Well-built open data systems are essential for implementing open government guidelines as it will help both you and your customers process data efficiently. Share this data or use it to create data products and reports that deliver intelligence about public awareness and safety. Even automate emergency alerts via SMS to citizens!

Land, Water, and Resource Management

By emphasizing the “big picture”, potential issues can be discussed sooner rather than later. Use your data to demonstrate scenarios like natural disasters to help determine how best to mitigate risks or build dynamic environments by generating 3D models from 2D data to aid in decision making about land management and site selection.

Connect Regions and Departments

Integrate datasets across states, provinces, and departments to keep everyone connected. Having accessible data will help to increase efficiency in project management as well as create a cohesive work environment. Doing so will assist efforts in defence, transportation, and health throughout your country.

Migrate Data to Advanced Applications

Moving your data into formats used by modern applications is a great way to ensure that your data is safe and secure. There are many modern database systems and cloud networks built with this in mind. FME can automatically transfer data from legacy systems into standard formats needed for modern federal government software in no time.

Customer Stories

Australian Government

Data distribution can be difficult, especially when you have terabytes worth of data to deliver. FME Cloud was the perfect solution for Geoscience Australia, the country’s national geologic survey agency. They were able to automate the delivery of elevation data in areas selected by a user via e-mail. This system reduced costs by 600%, manual effort by 80% and delivery speed by 98% resulting in data requests increasing from 2,000 a year to 12,600 requests a year!

The Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE)

At 8,514,877 square kilometers, Brazil is the fifth largest country in the world and The Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics was tasked with the huge feat of mapping the entire country at a scale of 1:250,000.
