As per the new report, Apple’s subsidiary Claris (formerly FileMaker Inc) says that it is seeing growth because of the same COVID issues, Although COVID had affected most technology firms. Claris has been repositioning itself from a database to an app development company, says that it gives users to create solutions that need “low coding” on top of provided templates.
Claris (formerly FileMaker Inc) CEO Mr. Brad Freitag says that there is a massive opportunity for low code to help in the Coronavirus situation. Software is helping to heal the world, and the low-code category awareness for health care, nonprofits, government, and education is up, and it can have an immediate impact, a profound impact.”
Without giving any figures, the CEO Mr. Brad Freitag Freitag says that Claris has seen inquiries from potential users, particularly in education, logistics, and health care, to a spike in users by 50% since the start of March 2020.
Also, the FileMaker CEO Freitag says, one never wishes for a crisis to support the sector but he thinks it will grow even more than the predication, mainly because they will head into a downturn and it will put more cost pressure on organizations solving complex digital problems.”
For an example of fast-turnaround app creation using FileMaker, Freitag says they worked with a European hospital to make Coronavirus patient software in one day. They had a decision treemap (decision support tool that uses a tree-like model of decisions) drawn on paper for triage of Coronavirus patients,” Freitag also said they would walk into ICU and go through a decision treemap to determine the next move”
The paper had to be replaced by software because the hospital had to keep revising its decision tree. Brad Freitag also said that “In a strong market customers could solve it with a bigger budget and industrial-strength solutions, “but we are going to see a more practical approach. To against big vendors, people really need to be creative on value justification in this situation.
FileMaker Pro (Previously known by the name of its key product), Claris recently rebranded and launched a new app creation service called Connect.
