Avineon Develops Automated Migration Solution for U.S. General Services Administration

27 September 2023

McLean, Virginia - September 27, 2023 - Avineon, Inc. (Avineon®) is pleased to announce the successful implementation of an automated data migration solution for the United States General Services Administration (GSA).


GSA's Spatial Data Management (SDM) team was decommissioning GSA’s legacy system for storing building information (eSMART) which entails migrating geometry and associated labels to the Occupancy Agreement Space Inventory System (OASIS). Avineon was asked to develop an automated solution to mass migrate approximately 40,000 drawings from Oracle Spatial to the AutoCAD DWG format utilized by OASIS.


The project began with a discovery phase so that Avineon could better understand GSA’s environment and conduct thorough requirements gathering. The results from these sessions were a systems impact analysis, a recommendation to use Safe Software’s Feature Manipulation Engine (FME), preliminary FME architecture, and high-level FME workspace specifications. Following approval of these deliverables, Avineon proceeded with a proof of concept and successful implementation of an FME-based data migration tool following an Agile development methodology. The final software release included knowledge transfer, user acceptance testing, and user training.


Anand Subramani, Avineon’s President, stated, “Avineon is proud of our FME capabilities and our ability to leverage them in support of GSA. We have one of the largest teams of Safe Software-certified FME professionals in the world and we look forward to continued opportunities to assist GSA.”
