Moments ago at our 24th annual DevCon, I announced several significant changes to reenergize our company’s identity, growth, and path forward.
First, we have rebranded FileMaker as Claris International Inc. This company name may sound familiar to many of you who have been with us since the early days. It honors our legacy while at the same time reflecting a new direction for growth.
FileMaker will live on as a service offering under the Claris banner.
Second, I announced the acquisition of Stamplay, a service that helps businesses of all sizes integrate data from third-party cloud services such as Box, DocuSign, Mailchimp, and others into their apps.
This offering, renamed as Claris Connect, provides customers with an intuitive interface for automating workflows across cloud-based services, saving them the task of building custom-built, backend integrations.
These changes reflect both the start of an exciting new chapter, and a continuation of the vision we have been executing against for more than 20 years: to make powerful technologies accessible to everyone.
During the coming weeks, months, and year, your passion and buy-in will be critical to our community’s success. We have an ambitious vision, and your participation in developer recruitment, events, and marketplace will continue to provide power to problem solvers worldwide.
