FileMaker Goes Back to ‘Claris’


“Claris stems from the Latin root ‘clarus,’ which means ‘clear, bright and shining,’” said Brad Freitag, Claris CEO. “Nothing better encapsulates the company’s mission: to empower the problem-solver with smart solutions that work for their business. By extending the reach of our platform as a modern, multi-faceted, and powerful merger of on-premises custom apps and third-party services, our customers can streamline their business processes across the cloud services that they use every day.”

If this name change doesn’t bring a nostalgic smile to your face, you probably weren’t a Mac user in the 1990s. FileMaker is still going strong, but back in the day, Claris had a slew of great Mac productivity apps.
