Integrate FME Universal Translator within Desktop

    I think a key area which the ArcGIS Suite currently lacks (as compared to MapInfo Professional) is the inability to convert different spatial formats from one to another.

    I know that in the latest versions of AGD, there have been a lot of advancements made with CAD, but it's still common to receive a MapInfo TAB file, which requires an additional application to translate to and from.

    I feel that having the ability to translate and convert different spatial formats would be a massive advantage for users.

    I know that there is the Paid Extension for ArcGIS for Desktop, but if there was any way to incorporate this into the licensing (even if it was for Standard and Advanced only) it would be extremely useful!
