Unlocking Data Flexibility: The benefits of an FME subscription

Safe Software has now shifted to a subscription-based model for their FME software due to the growing demand for data flexibility. Perpetual licenses are comparable to owning a house, while subscriptions are like renting. Subscriptions offer lower upfront costs, faster deployment, an agile approach to license selection, access to development and test licenses, and better value for money. While perpetual licenses are still available, the subscription option appears to be the more sensible choice for FME users. Contact the miso team for more information on FME subscriptions.

Ordnance Survey’s NGD API is like Spotify for maps

Ordnance Survey’s National Geographical Database (NGD) API is a brilliant innovation that lets you quickly request regularly updated geospatial data using an API. It’s like Spotify but for maps (it’s actually very different to Spotify but stick with us for this metaphor).
