The first FME World Tour in De Bilt was a success!

On Tuesday 17 April, FME World Tour took place at the beautiful mansion Houdringe in De Bilt, the Netherlands. With participants from different organizations, interesting presentations by Safe Software, inspiring best practices sessions, this was a day filled with FME and good vibes.

Presentations and Topics

On the one hand, focus was given to examples from practice. Sweco, as well as RIVM (Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment) and Boskalis, showed how they use FME and how this enables them to achieve concrete results based on their data. The participants responded enthusiastically and were clearly glad with the tips and tricks provided.

On the other hand, there was a very clear interest in FME Sever and related topics. After his session, Stewart Harper – Technical Director Cloud Services at Safe Software – received many requests for further information on this. In addition to FME Desktop 2018 there is also a new release of FME Server 2018. During his presentation Stewart addressed this new release. He also provided interesting examples on the use of FME Server, shared great tips on the use of the new interface and discussed some of the important challenges in data automation.

The first time, but not the last..

The FME World Tour is organized once a year and has become the most important event to learn from other FME users, share experiences and meet new contacts. Obviously, it also provides the inspiration for your next step: making use of FME to address all those challenges that require innovative solutions. Given the large number of participants and the positive feedback, Sweco would very much like to organize another FME World Tour in the Netherlands next year!
