From the Makers of the Data Interoperability Extension

Safe Software and Esri have a strong partnership that promotes tight integration between FME and the ArcGIS platform. The FME-powered Data Interoperability Extension enables you to build spatial integration tasks directly into the geoprocessing framework so you don't have to leave the familiarity of the ArcGIS environment.
