By November 13, 2019November 15th, 2019FME

FME 2019.2 is ready! Let’s take a look at latest updates and check the new possibilities of the most powerful data integration tool.

FME Workbench updates

FME Workbench has a bundle of new readers, writers and connectors helping you to connect with more systems and perform advanced operations.

Raster transformers

  • RasterSharpener – enhance the features of a raster image.
  • RasterSegmenter – partition a raster image into groups of cells Images are being grouped based on their intensity and differences.
  • RasterRegisterer – helps you to minimize differences between raster images.

Connect to cloud services using these packages from FME Hub. FME 2019.2 allows you to connect with the following data banks:

  • Google BigQuery
  • Amazon S3
  • IBM Maximo

You can also connect to Amazon’s AI services, Rekognition and Comprehend, for natural language processing and computer vision/image analysis.

Automating: FME Server updates

FME 2019.2 gives you a set of tools helping you to automate your workflows more efficiently. There are also two security updates improving overall security by giving administrators more control over access permissions.

Security features

  • Admins can see all user tokens and who they belong to.
  • Admins can edit other users’ FME Server Apps, e.g. to fix issues.

Automations updates

  • Create Global Keys from workflow parameters more easily. You can manage a key in one place and reference the value in multiple places throughout the Automation.
  • Create Output Keys, which are like attributes in Workbench but for Automations. Create them easily in Text Editor and set as constants or expressions.
  • Management view gives you the ability to check the owner of an Automation.
  • Trigger parameters: configure these with Global Keys and the Automation Name/ID. This allows you to use a global value downstream in the automation.
