Microsoft has announced the purchase of Clear Software on October 22 without disclosing the price paid. Clear Software is a provider of integration and business-process products with an emphasis on SAP and Oracle connectivity.
Microsoft officials said they believe Clear Software’s API access and back-end systems knowledge will strengthen the integration between the Power Platform and outside systems of record.
Clear Software’s products offer more than 100 pre-built abstractions for SAP and Oracle and can be customized for each organization’s needs. Microsoft’s Power Platform is a set of low-code/no-code tools for “citizen developers” (non-professional programmers), which includes Power Automate, Power Apps and Power BI.
Power Automate General Manager Partner Stephen Siciliano said the company wants to make it easier for customers to integrate a variety of systems when they build business applications with Microsoft Power Platform.
“The Clear Software integrations will make it a more seamless experience to use Power Apps and Power Automate to build business applications and automation over complex systems like SAP and Oracle,” said Stephen Siciliano.
Microsoft will provide specifics about how it intends to incorporate Clear Software’s technology into its line-up at a later date, officials said.
