Having to repeat the same data processing task a couple of times is tolerable, three times is an inconvenience, needing to do it twenty-three times is unrealistic. This kind of activity involving multiple steps and sometimes more than one person means it’s easy for errors to creep into the process or little inconsistencies in methodology occurring that reduce the ultimate quality of your data.
In situations like this you can look to automation to take the strain. Automating a task can however get a bad press, because it can be perceived to be a replacement for a real person. If automation is used solely as a tool to replace a person though, you’re not going to get the true value from the technique. Used correctly and used well, automation helps you to remove the mundane tasks that you’d rather not do. It also helps you to manage the inconvenient tasks that you physically can’t do, because they are too frequent, or are required at an unsociable time. Attend this webinar and we’ll show you how FME can help you to automate anything, well almost!
