FME 2016 Use Case: Performance Tuning

I recently finished updating the FME Desktop training for 2016. The Performance chapter in the advanced manual is always one of the most difficult to put together, but also the most rewarding. It shows how just a few small changes can make a huge difference to a workspace.

This post is just a very quick overview of that chapter, showing the exercise we cover, what changes we make, and how much its performance improves. The results? Incredible!

FME 2016.1 Sneak Peek: Bookmark Navigation

You’ll almost certainly know that we have an FME World Tour every year, where we send Safe staff around the world to events hosted by us and our partners. You probably also know that we always follow up on the latest release of FME with a .1 version at this time of year too.

What you might not know is that the timing of these two events isn’t coincidence. We deliberately schedule .1 to be ready in time for use on the world tour. And, although I don’t usually blog about .1 functionality in advance, there’s an upcoming 2016.1 update that all presenters on the World Tour should be aware of: Bookmark Navigation.

FME 2016 New Features: Seven More Things to Get Excited About!

I might not be a pope or a Roman emperor, but that doesn’t mean I can’t create my own calendar. The first month of my year I call Launchuary – the month of the new FME launch. Next up is Trainuary, when I complete all our training materials. We’re now entering Blogch, the month when I realize I haven’t written half the blog posts I planned to and scramble to catch up.

So here I’m going to quickly round off the 2016.0 launch with a summary of all the new functionality that I wanted to highlight, but haven’t had time to yet.
