    What is FileMaker Pro?

    FileMaker Pro is a low-code cross-platform relational database system for organizations that don't want to dig too deep into programming and developing their own web publishing / online database solutions. But though organizations may not want to develop their databases from scratch, that doesn't mean they don't have custom needs. By customizing FileMaker Pro within the low-code/no-code environment, companies can deploy a truly custom solution quickly.

    What are the benefits of using FileMaker Pro?

    Companies can hit the ground running with their database management and maintenance with FileMaker Pro. As a robust but easy-to-use system, FileMaker Pro empowers organizations to start managing their databases immediately within the low-code, no-code, easily deployable environment.

    A brief history of FileMaker Pro

    Claris FileMaker Pro has been around for an incredibly long time, far before most low-code/no-code, cross-platform, or even database systems. It was first released as a data management system for the Apple Macintosh as far back as 1985. It was updated in 1992 for compatibility with Windows systems and rebranded to FileMaker Pro at that time. In 2007, version 9 was released which introduced true support for databases by way of supporting SQL. In 1998 Apple changed Claris’ name to FileMaker, Inc. but changed it back to Claris International Inc. and announced Claris Connect workflow software.

    Does anyone still use FileMaker Pro?

    FileMaker Pro has evolved significantly from its early file management capabilities in 1985. Many companies still use and even adopt FileMaker Pro today, because it's an easy-to-use and fast-to-deploy system. Many companies have created an entire file architecture and infrastructure around the advantages of FileMaker Pro. As FileMaker Pro can be integrated directly into an organization's proprietary systems and third-party applications ,there are some that use FileMaker Pro as a cornerstone of their database and document management.

    What does a FileMaker developer do?

    A FileMaker Pro developer is an expert in the FileMaker system, able to no-code/low-code systems and directly code APIs. A FileMaker developer may create custom systems, integrate FileMaker into other systems, or maintain existing systems and improve it. FileMaker developers are very familiar with the FileMaker markup language and FileMaker infrastructure.
