FileMaker Pro lets you create custom database applications using a set of design and development tools, including built-in templates. FileMaker utilizes robust security features and seamlessly integrates with centralized MIT resources, e.g., Data Warehouse and Kerberos authentication.

IS&T also provides FileMaker hosting and support services related to the use of FileMaker at MIT.

Note: FileMaker Pro 19 is the recommended version for use at MIT and is compatible with files hosted on both FileMaker Server 18 and 19.  If you think you may be on a server that is older, please indicate this on your request form.
