“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.
