Safe Software Announced as Bronze Sponsor of the 1Spatial Conference 2008

1Spatial is delighted to announce that Safe Software will be participating as a Bronze Sponsor of their 2008 Conference: ‘1 Source of Truth’. The Conference is being held from 29th April to 1st May at the Radisson SAS Hotel, Stansted Airport, UK.

Safe Software powers the flow of spatial data with its software platform, FME. The recognised standard in spatial ETL (extract, transform and load), FME is the only complete solution for data conversion. It delivers the most extensive format support for data translation and integration, and provides unlimited flexibility in data model transformation and data distribution. Designed for true data interoperability, FME unleashes spatial data so people can use it where, when, and how they want to.

“1Spatial has been a reseller of FME, the recognised standard for spatial ETL, for over five years, says Don Murray, President of Safe Software. "As Bronze sponsors for this year's 1Spatial Conference, we are really looking forward to educating attendees on ways they can use our FME platform to quickly translate, transform and integrate their spatial data assets.”

Steven Ramage, key contact for the 1Spatial Community and Business Development Director for 1Spatial added:

“There is a very complementary nature to the activities of Safe Software and those of 1Spatial. Safe is the clear market leader when it comes to Spatial ETL and we focus on Spatial Data Integration, notably around assessing and ensuring fit for purpose spatial data and then providing means to maintain it. If you attend the Conference you will have an excellent opportunity to establish a best of breed solution using solutions from both organisations."

Other sponsors include Autodesk, Blue Marble Geographics, eSpatial, HP, Informatica, Infotech, Intergraph, Oracle, Salford GIS, TCS and Tele Atlas. The Conference is set to deliver a comprehensive learning package for everyone working with spatial data, from expert Practitioners, through to Programmers and Chief Executive Officers. Focused discussions, presentations and workshops will assist you in achieving more effective and efficient use of spatial data throughout your organisation, or for any activity relating to integrating spatial data and building Spatial Data Infrastructures (SDIs).
