Empowering the Enterprise by Moving to the Cloud
At Waka Kotahi New Zealand Transport Agency, FME desktop, and FME server underpin the development of data, research, and analytics and facilitates the day-to-day management and maintenance of an Enterprise Geospatial Platform. Faced with aging on-prem infrastructure and operating systems moving to end-of-life support we undertook a move to cloud and upgrade project which would enable us to better empower the enterprise. This presentation explores the challenges and successes of our experience in moving to the cloud and upgrading FME desktop and server from 2017 to 2021. The example is of the management and maintenance of an Enterprise Geospatial Platform where FME is used to support independent production systems with no inherent mechanisms for synchronizing data flow between those systems. It is intended for government, transportation industry, GIS professionals, and any FME users faced with migration and upgrade challenges.
