Apple subsidiary Claris launches low-code automation platform

Enterprise CIO is a practical resource for CIOs; business app developers; CTOs; business IT and mobilisation professionals, delivering the most insightful, informative and up to the minute news content from around the web.

Claris International, a subsidiary of Apple, has announced the launch of its ‘Claris Connect’ workflow automation platform.

According to the company, the platform is designed for the real-world challenges of small and medium businesses. After several months of testing and growth of its library of connectors, the company is now finally all set to drive digital transformation for any organisation that is working to streamline business processes through automated workflows. With approximately 50 connecters at launch, this also includes some of the most widely utilised enterprise applications globally like Slack, Box and Trello.

Claris Connect takes out the need for custom coding, moving the product into the low-code space, being able to offer features such as conditional logic, approvals, code blocks, and custom connectors.

Brad Freitag, CEO of Claris said: “The right path to being cloud first is to be cloud smart. That means giving problem solvers all the power of the cloud – sharing, rapid deployment, scalability – without losing connection to the real world. Today, Claris Connect offers the best way to connect critical cloud applications with the real, physical world of devices, servers and sensors."

After perhaps a period of lull, there now appears to be momentum around low- and no-code technologies. AppSheet was acquired by Google Cloud at the end of last year, with CEO Praveen Seshadri noting that ‘citizen development has emerged as the strategic way for modern organisations to invest, innovate, and compete.’

Last month Unqork, a no-code application platform has announced that it has secured £39.8m in series B funding round to boost its mission to offer high-quality software for large enterprises at minimum cost. According to the company, the funding will be used to grow Unqork's sales and marketing teams across the US and globally, invest in engineering and training, and also establish greater partnerships.
