FileMaker Cloud - What does it do and is it right for me?

FileMaker Cloud - What does it do and is it right for me? | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it

FileMaker Cloud - What does it do and is it right for me?

FileMaker Cloud has been around for just over a year now, since late 2016. It was created by FileMaker Inc as an alternative to running a FileMaker Server (on a Mac or PC) on your premises.


What is it exactly?

FileMaker Cloud is really a UNIX machine running in Amazon’s data centres that is dedicated to hosting your databases.

It runs a version of FileMaker Server for UNIX that has been especially written for FileMaker Cloud.

You don’t have to worry about the machine that it runs on, you just know that it is dedicated to your organisation, and no-one else will have access to the data.

Event Management with the FileMaker Platform | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it
If you've ever planned an event, you can appreciate the immense amount of organization, coordination and communication required to effectively manage all aspects of the logistics.

Technology, when leveraged effectively, can be extremely helpful in the process.

Oftentimes event planners don't understand when and/or how to implement technology to streamline and automate tasks and information.

The prestigious University of California at Berkeley (UCB) came to us to help them streamline their event planning and management systems.

Integrates Louisiana Coastal Service FileMaker App with ArcGIS Online

Integrates Louisiana Coastal Service FileMaker App with ArcGIS Online | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it
Louisiana Coastal Services (LCS) is a multidisciplinary law firm, land broker, mapping, and project management company that assists in making Louisiana coastal projects a success.

They have extended expertise in many domains, deep local knowledge, and a modern technology toolkit unlike any other firm. Their services include Regulatory Compliance, GIS Mapping, Grant Management, Litigation, and even Risk Management.

ArcGIS Online (AGOL) and FileMaker make up the bulk of LCS’s tech stack.

AGOL is powerful mapping platform that allows you to host data in the cloud and produce maps than can be embedded into websites.

LCS figured out how to display these maps within FileMaker webviewers but quickly realized that wasn’t quite enough.

For example, users wanted to be able to click on tracts and open the corresponding FileMaker record.

They wanted to be able to change the status of a tract project in FileMaker and have the map update the tract feature’s color to reflect this change.

These types of interaction between the web and FileMaker are not trivial.

LuminFire was able to provide them with exactly what they required when other developers failed.

Second Use Connects FileMaker to WordPress with BrilliantSync

...

Like many companies that use FileMaker, Second Use does their own development.

LuminFire took their solution to the next level by utilizing BrilliantSync to allow the FileMaker database and their WordPress website to communicate with one another.

 

BrilliantSync works as a data translator and bi-directional or two way sync engine.


BrilliantSync identifies differential changes that have been made since the last sync in the FileMaker database and automatically imports them into the website as usable WordPress objects.

This includes inventory items, photos, price changes, store location, etc.
BrilliantSync also pushes changes from the WordPress website back to FileMaker. For example, if a customer requests an item pick-up or registers via a form on the website, FileMaker syncs that information automatically in the background.
