FME in Education: Combining data from web-based and on-campus systems

Safe Software's FME has long been a core tool for users working with spatial data, but has capabilities across all spheres of data. The complete FME platform, including Desktop, Server, and Cloud, can help accelerate and automate the movement and transformation of data. This provides opportunities across the entire institution or organization, in finance, human resources, student services, facilities, information technology, strategic planning, and research.

Have you ever dreamed of making it so your Student, Finance, and HR systems can talk easily with your Learning Management System, IT service and documentation systems, and all come together to generate provide data for Tableau dashboards and a project report, all with basically no code? This free webinar is the second in a series focused on how FME can help across the educational enterprise, and is ideal for anybody working in education interested in improving the way they work with data.

In this session we will cover:

  • How to connect to web-based systems, such as software-as-a-service (SaaS) cloud systems using web APIs
  • Getting data out of and into web-based systems
  • Combining data from web-based systems with traditional database systems
