FME Software's FME Flow (until recently known as FME Server) runs data integration scripts built in FME Form. Flow is designed to run recurring processes automatically. For example, every 24 hours. To get the most out of FME software's capabilities, an FME Flow license is absolutely essential. 

What can you do with FME Flow?

Developing GIS data integrations is what you do in FME Form. You use Flow to then execute these processes. This is done on the basis of a planning tool. For example, you can choose to only synchronise the data needed for a certain process at night. Want to start automating your Form processes right away? Then request a licence below!

For whom is FME Flow suitable?

FME Flow is widely used by organisations with tasks in outdoor space and/or asset management, such as governments and utilities.

Why should I use FME Flow?

You use FME Flow to automate recurring data integration processes. With FME Form, you design scripts based on standard functionalities. Flow Hosted lets you schedule how often and when data synchronisation takes place. 

How many processes can I automate with FME Flow?

The number of scripts you can run simultaneously depends on the number of engines you purchase with your licence. One engine can run one process at a time. You can choose to prioritise processes, so critical processes always get priority. From practice, we know that you need at least two engines, so you can run two processes at the same time. This is particularly important when working with real-time data.

Do I need FME Flow, Flow Hosted or Form?

FME Form forms the basis for your FME configuration. That is the tool in which you build workspaces. You always need at least one Form licence.

FME Flow and Flow Hosted both execute the FME scripts created in Form. The difference between the two tools is the chosen storage format. You install Flow on your own PC and all data used in FME is stored on your own server. With Flow Hosted, this is done in the cloud. Organisations that prefer a server-based solution for security reasons are therefore more likely to choose Flow than Flow Hosted.
