Microsoft Acquires Clear Software to Better Integrate RPA with Enterprise Platforms

Microsoft announced it has acquired Clear Software to enable better connectivity between its Power Automate Platform and popular enterprise platforms including SAP, Oracle and Salesforce.

The Zionsville, Ind.-based company provides integration and business process and automation products. The company has existing relationships with several RPA providers including UiPath, Automation Anywhere and Pega Systems. It is the integration capabilities that attracted Microsoft’s attention, according to Stephen Siciliano, general manager of Power Automate.

“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,” Siciliano said announcing the acquisition. “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.”

Siciliano noted that Microsoft will share more information about how its customers can access the Clear Software capabilities in the future. Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
