Microsoft buys IPaaS platform that integrates with Oracle, SAP
Acquisition of Clear Software gives Microsoft’s enterprise business customers more flexibility to create business apps.
Microsoft has announced that it has acquired iPaaS and business process solutions company Clear Software. Microsoft customers who build their own business solutions with Microsoft Power Platform are expected to gain from stronger integration with outside systems as a result of the deal.
Clear Software will help Microsoft Power Platform users by providing strong connectivity into SAP and Oracle.
On the user interface side, Microsoft will be able to deliver customized integrations to fit each organization’s unique needs, according to a Microsoft blog post. This comes from over 100 pre-built abstractions developed over these systems.
Adding Clear Software’s API access will strengthen and accelerate how customers use data and processes beyond Microsoft’s first-party services.
Why we care. Microsoft’s enterprise business customers, and their marketing organizations, obviously would like the most flexibility they can have with developing their own business applications and solutions. By adding Oracle and SAP integrations into the mix through this acquisition, the Microsoft Power Platform gives itself a shot at remaining relevant and useful to enterprises looking to maximize their data-driven business insights.
