BrilliantSync started as a single powerful translation and syncing engine. It has grown into a suite of unique, reliable, flexible and specialized tools for integrating FileMaker and other applications including fmFlare, BrilliantGateway, BrilliantForms, BrilliantStorage, BrilliantFlows, BrilliantPortal, and more.

The BrilliantSync tool suite connects your FileMaker solution to nearly any web product or service available with less programming effort and greater reliability. These tools allow you to take advantage of the wealth of technology available beyond the FileMaker world, while still keeping FileMaker as the digital hub for your solution. No longer do you need to reinvent the wheel and build everything in FileMaker. Each tool can work in concert to build your solution taking advantage of best-in-class technology apps working in concert.

BrilliantSync tools convert data from multiple sources to information the FileMaker developer can understand and work with in a familiar way. They provide reliable and secure database services in the cloud with connectors that do all the most challenging work. BrilliantSync tools streamline integrations, saving businesses (and their developers) a significant amount of effort and money by shortening the time it takes to create integrations.

BrilliantSync tools creates the ability to:

  • Reliably scale FileMaker data access to thousands of users.
  • Allow for web form generation and translation to FileMaker.
  • Provide access to web data sources in a way familiar to FileMaker developers.
  • Reduce the complexities of APIs.

How it Works
Data sync is a very complex operation. BrilliantSync tools include several advanced technologies working behind the scenes to make it more accessible to FileMaker developers.

Web-based products and services each have their own API (Application Programming Interface). BrilliantSync tools translate data formats between your FileMaker solution and the web-based solutions you want to use and handles the syncing of the data on a regular schedule.

BrilliantSync tools take advantage of many of the advanced integrating technologies available in FileMaker including the Data API, JSON, cURL, JavaScript, Webviewers, SQL, ESS (External SQL Sources) and an ODBC (Open Database Connectivity). Once you setup connection to BrilliantSync tools you can read, edit, or create records in external applications and exchange information without the need to write complicated code. BrilliantSync takes care of all that work for you behind the scenes starting with authentication. You can work with familiar FileMaker tables, fields, and script steps. They even insulate you from future API changes in the external applications.

BrilliantSync tools are built using fully scalable, load balanced, fault-tolerant, managed technologies via AWS (Amazon Web Services). BrilliantSync works the same if your database is hosted on-site or on a FileMaker server in the cloud.
