Apple’s subsidiary, FileMaker, changed its brand to Claris not too long ago. And now it has a beta of its newest endeavor.

In a blog post today entitled “Transformation is all about flow”, Claris, formerly known as FileMaker, unveiled Claris Connect. This will connect a range of third-party applications and services together in an effort to make them all run smoothly together, and get your workflow in tip-top shape.

It’s a complicated behind-the-scenes process, but Claris says it aims to make it as simple as possible so that these services can be stitched together quickly and easily. Claris is managing the back-end configuration, so developers won’t need to rely on custom coding to reach the same goal.

Claris Connect is just in beta for now.

It is with this goal in mind that, this morning, we announced the Beta release of Claris Connect – a service designed to do just that: supercharge your innovation. For too long, many problem solvers have been forced to weigh the power of third party services integration against the resources and complexity required to tap into them. With Claris Connect, simplicity and power of integration and automation are no longer a tradeoff!

Claris Connect offers automation with no boundaries with the ability to connect cloud and on-prem resources seamlessly in a flow. For those using Claris FileMaker, automation is seamlessly integrated with modern apps and built on Claris Core – sharing the same security, agility and global availability built on the unified cloud fabric.

Claris acquired Steamplay recently, which was a service that integrated third-party services based in the cloud in other applications. Building upon that made Claris Connect a possibility.

This is a solid start from Claris, so it will be fun to see what comes from the Apple subsidiary next. This sounds like a useful tool for enterprises!
