Early 80’s

In the early 1980s, four Wang Labs employees decided to create their own Database system

They rented a house and created Nashoba Systems

The first system was called Nutshell Plus and was published by Leading Edge

The Macintosh was released and a compatible version of the system was made. As a result, the name was changed to FileMaker® and the software was published by Forethought

Because the names of the software followed the name of Macintosh products, the first software was FileMaker® Plus, named after Mac Plus

Claris Corporation officially publishes FileMaker® products. The first software published by Claris was FileMaker® II, which was named after MacWriter II.

Thereafter, the names of the FileMaker products began to have a conventional version number.
