FME allows for data connection and integration coming from many sources, applications and systems. It possesses tools necessary to connect directly with servers, databases or WMS/ WMTS services. Creating script in FME Desktop is quick and easy. Just connect each transformer to create a workflow to convert data. Using FME server allows for full automatization of the processes, therefore saving time. No need for a constant, manual script running with each actualization of input data. Simply project the correct automatization, and FME will take care of everything.

Connect your data coming from multiple sources and services
Every day, most companies and organizations create more and more gigabytes of data from various software sources, often incompatible with each other. Thanks to FME you can integrate data coming from multiple sources and creating data warehouses or Big Data databases. The direct connection with outside services and environments allows downloading data and sharing its results.
Transform data exactly as you want it
Very often data quality is below our expectations. We may need to correct it or edit in some way to achieve a different result. Here is where FME can prove its worth. Using this platform for data integration, we can use it for almost every transformation possible. FME tool library has a solution for every problem you might have. They allow for example for aggregation, filtrating, connecting, sharing and deleting duplicated data. Transforming doesn’t require script od code writing. Simply connect together couple transformers in a logical and easy way to add some attributes and its done!
Share and download data in any format and coordinate systems
Every institution or company uses data stored in multiple formats, varying from the software that they use. It can be exhausting to try and open files in incompatible formats. Thanks to FME it’s possible to use data in 450 different sources and formats, including spatial data. Using this platform you can download and share data in any format, allowing it to be used in the most popular apps.
Build your processes based on precise, current and verified data
Data validation is very important in data transformation processes. It helps to improve the accuracy of the results. Different types of validations are:
- Data integration control – data form unification, spell check, data types, deleting null values.
- Formats and standards control – using correct data models compatible with popular apps.
- Geometric validation – control the objects’ geometric accuracy, its topology or relation between objects.
Save time with process automation
Most of FME user-created scrips are repeating and based on the current data.
It is necessary to restart the process after each data update. It’s exhausting in case of daily or even more frequent updates. In this case, using FME Server might be a solution. It allows automating processes and running them based on a schedule or input data update.
Apps and technologies supported by FME
