Microsoft has acquired Clear Software, an iPaaS and business process solutions provider with strong connectivity into SAP and Oracle. 

 Clear Software’s API access and system knowledge will strengthen Microsoft Power Platform’s integration with outside systems and accelerate how customers leverage data and processes that reside beyond Microsoft first-party services. 

Its products offer more than 100 pre-built abstractions for SAP and Oracle, which can be customised for each organisation’s needs. 

In a blog post about the announcement, Stephen Siciliano, partner general manager of Power Automate at Microsoft, said: “Organisations depend on their business applications to work seamlessly across many different systems and data stores. Customers need to know that their most critical business processes are built to optimise working across those systems and data sets, no matter how complex the process becomes.  

“We want 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 automations over complex systems like SAP and Oracle.”
