  • Microsoft has been on a mission to enhance collaboration with third-party partners.
  • Microsoft has now acquired Clear Software to strengthen the SAP and Oracle connectivity through integration of systems. 
  • The move will make things easier for customers when the integration of systems takes off.

Microsoft has announced that it has acquired Clear Software which is an Indiana-based software company. The acquisition will help Microsoft offer a more seamless experience to build automation over systems such as SAP and Oracle.

Just last month, Microsoft partnered with Honor to develop groundbreaking AI devices and now this acquisition follows suit.

The purchase

The purchase was made on October 22 but Microsoft is tight-lipped on the price but it seems they paid quite a hefty amount. Before the acquisition, Clear had raised about 5.5 million from investors.

According to Microsoft officials, they are confident that Clear Software’s API access and back-end systems knowledge will be instrumental in strengthening the integration.

It is expected that the Power Platform and Power Apps will be frontline in the integration since Clear Software’s products offer over 100 pre-built abstractions for SAP and Oracle which are customizable to suit each organization’s needs. 

Support businesses

The aim of the acquisition is to make it easier for businesses to perform their duties seamlessly across different platforms.

Microsoft had noted the dependency of organizations on their own applications. Clear is in support of the developments so far.

Although the details are not fully out, Microsoft promises to release more information at a later date on its intentions to incorporate Clear’s technology.
