FME Governance: How to Structure the use and Growth of FME

Date: May 4, 2021 from 1pm to 1:45pm EDT

FME is a versatile technology that often grows organically in an organization, one data process at a time. It often starts in the GIS department with a few desktop licenses, solving problems, automating data processes, etc. Over time, FME Server gets added to leverage greater automation capacity, and these data processes become critical to operations in the organization often integrating data across departments and applications.

At this point, you need to start asking some questions:

  • How to design a light, flexible and future proof architecture?
  • How to plan migrations and production deployment?
  • How to size FME Server and provision processing capacity.
  • How to configure the application to meet business needs, IT standards and security requirements?

Governance and implementation practices should provide methodologies for leveraging FME tuned to an organization business and technical needs and requirements, not become a bottleneck in the process. In this presentation we will share some of the important questions and considerations when provisioning for FME Server based on different scenarios we have encountered over the years in a variety of contexts and use-cases.

 

Concepts in governing and implementing FME Server as an enterprise solution (in collaboration with Safe Software

Date: May 11, 2021 from 2:30pm to 3:30pm EDT

FME is a versatile technology that often grows organically in an organization, one data process at a time. It often starts in the GIS department with a few desktop licenses, solving problems, automating data processes, etc. Over time, FME Server gets added to leverage greater automation capacity. 

Governance and implementation practices should provide methodologies for leveraging FME tuned to an organization’s business and technical needs. In collaboration with Brian Pont and Holly Coxon from Safe Software we will present important questions and considerations in the implementation and management of FME Server. We will give an overview of:

  • Strategies for technical implementation of FME server (sizing, security, configuration, migration)
  • Ideas for best practices of using FME across an organization
  • A look at what Safe has been developing in terms of tools that can help in managing your FME technology
  • Reflections on the conversations about Enterprise FME management we have had with Safe over the past couple of years
  • We will look at different use cases we have encountered over 12 years of implementing FME Server.

This presentation will be followed by a Q & A session. Take this opportunity to chat with Consortech and Safe Software professionals!
