Transform with Speed & Agility

Transformer Fine-Tuning

We’ve been fine-tuning the inner workings of FME to make transformers faster, easier to configure, and able to accelerate high volume data processing and advance your spatial analysis. Please keep your arms, legs, and items within your workspace at all times, and hang on tight as FME 2021 continues to accelerate and drive speed to insight!

Integrate Streaming Data

With the brand new feature Streams in FME Flow, it’s easier than ever to integrate streaming data and IoT for continuous, real time data processing.

With the enhanced TimeWindower, you can elevate your real-time streaming workflows and easily manage data in-order or out-of-order.

Streaming data of any volume, from low or sporadic to dedicated high volume where low latency is a requirement, are perfect for Streams. As an alternative to bulk or batch workflows, Streams enables data to be processed before it’s stored so you can summarize, filter, and use data the way you need to.

Data-Aware Transformer Dialogs lightbulb

Finally! No more struggling to remember the exact values in your source data.

Now when configuring Test or TestFilter clauses, you can start typing and see matching values or simple use checkboxes.

Parameter Dialog Builder lightbulb

Specially made for all you FME Hub users and contributors, the parameter manager is here to save the day.

Use a simple drag and drop interface (...does that sound familiar?) to build user parameter dialogs for workspaces and custom transformers. This makes the process of sharing your creations easier. Recipients and users of your work will only need to adjust the parameters you’ve specifically requested instead of needing to fill in more than what your workspace or custom transformer requires.

Automate with Increased Control

With more updates to Automations in FME Flow, it’s even easier to manage integration patterns and maximize the value of your data.

  • Gain greater control over finding and choosing the geometry you need with the improved Geometry Parameters. Combined with a fresh UI redesign and a new toolbar, you’ll experience a more intuitive workflow process.
    New to 2021.2
  • Use Azure AD authentication to manage access to FME Flow in a centralized location and integrate cloud services with the FME Platform and other applications.
    New to 2021.2
  • Reduce duplicate work and runtime with Split-Merge Block by creating multiple output ports to run workspace actions. With elastic split-merge control over parallel processing, you can build more complex Automations!
  • Use Guaranteed Delivery to configure the number of workflow attempts as well as handle and track failures in multiple internal and external systems. With Guaranteed Delivery, you can ensure automated actions always occur.lightbulb
  • Manually trigger Automations workflows with the click of a button or by making a REST call. This is perfect for Automations that process big jobs or for troubleshooting complex triggers.lightbulb
  • New security authentication support for Generic Directory saves time when configuring an FME Flow installation.lightbulb

Autoscaling Engines in Your Deployment

Engine assignments in FME Flow

We are setting the groundwork for autoscaling, so you always have the best engine capacity for your specific needs. With FME 2021, you can access job statistics, fine-tune Automations based on how long each node takes to run, and access historical, current, and predicted load information.

We’ve also added the ability to define advanced Engine Assignment Rules, giving you more flexibility and power over the distribution of resources. This allows you to maximize the value of FME Engines by deploying them where they’re needed the most.
