Filemaker Server v17 is a good product. More importantly, Filemaker Inc., the company, is committed to moving the product forward. That includes integrating with new technologies, such as javascript, and fostering a collegial, informed developer community.

FM Server 16.0.4 doesn't support Mac OS 10.11 anymore...16.0.3 does. Come on FileMaker! A bug fix within a main version shouldn't change the supported platform. It seems you're on behalf of apple to push the users to unintended upgrades so they have to buy new hardware. For me it's time to switch to a Windows machine as server. Bye bye.

A great product with horrible marketing that cannot stabilize on product names, and practices price gouging. -3.5 for marketing, +4 for product

In the current business world, modern databases have to be able to cope with large data, and be online. FileMaker's appeal to small business has always been its ease of use, but its underlying technology and licensing scheme have now seriously lagged behind the times, offering very little that is compelling. The Filemaker licensing scheme - specially for FileMaker Server - is totally outdated and unrealistic. If you want to put your database online, you will need a FileMaker Server license with a number of concurrent connections. If you plan on having 10 concurrent connections, it will cost you over $5,000 for the full license. If you plan on having a successful site, and need, let's say, 100 connections, it will cost you in excess of $25,000. Really? And that's whitout factoring in any development costs. For that amount of money we can hire a full-time developer for about 6 months. I can write an infinitely flexible interface using HTML+CSS+JS, and set up my backend database using an open-source product like Mongo, Orient or ArangoDB - or any number of NoSQL large-data databases - and have it be scalable to thousands of concurrent connections without having to shell out any license money. Filemaker's only appeal is its ease of use, but that alone is certainly not enough - specially not for small businesses.

If you have Mac OS X Lion Server and are thinking that you should try the FileMaker Server 12: DON'T! It doesn't even run after the installation.
