FileMaker to Claris, cloud, AI, etc.

Apple today took the strange step of bringing back a subsidiary it previously abandoned, as it now abandons its replacement in a return again to the original name for its latest spin towards an A.I. bot-driven future….

FileMaker reborn as Claris
FileMaker, Inc. … unveiled the start of a new chapter in the company’s history as Claris International Inc. … In 1986, Claris began as an Apple subsidiary. In 1998, the company was renamed as FileMaker, Inc.

The future of the Claris Platform: from FileMaker, to Claris Connect and beyond
Claris Next Gen will be built to leverage the full power of modern workflow apps with built-in orchestration and automation, machine learning, and advanced user experiences powered by AI Bots and AR/VR. Just as our Connect product will significantly lower the barrier to sophisticated app development through 3rd party cloud services, our Next Gen platform will provide modern, AI-driven apps delivered as a service.

An Apple subsidiary once led by legendary Silicon Valley ‘coach’ Bill Campbell is getting a complete rebrand
A little-known subsidiary of Apple is getting a fresh coat of paint: FileMaker is no more, CEO Brad Freitag said in an interview. … Freitag is relatively new in the top role, taking over the CEO position earlier this year from Dominique Goupil, who had led FileMaker for more than 20 years. … Claris is transitioning away from a business model where it runs on servers owned and operated by companies that purchase the software outright to a monthly subscription model of about $50 $15 per person per month, Freitag said.
