What is Middleware?
Middleware, also known as a connector or integration, is a system that brings together applications, data, and, of course, their users within organizations.
Let’s say your business runs on a multi-cloud environment or across various applications. A middleware, or integration, is a cost-effective solution for running these applications all together.
It encourages data sharing and collaboration among teams and less manual data input to avoid human error – allowing your teams to focus on the more important tasks in your business.

ERP Integrated Solutions with GURUS
Using the Boomi integration platform, you can connect your NetSuite ERP to several applications. Some of the more popular software integrations include:
What is Boomi?
Boomi is an Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) used in software integrations - often called a middleware. It has the necessary information to connect data sources and applications to your organization’s ERP platform.
With the plan you created together with your ERP implementation partner, you’ll get quick and simple integration across applications so your overall business can remain connected anywhere.
If you work in a cloud environment or use several different applications, Boomi would be the answer to your concerns about having too much data moving around at once.
Boomi can help you connect NetSuite to important applications and systems like Shopify or HubSpot as well as many others.
You’ll bring together the back-office data from NetSuite with important data from these applications, all with one smart connector, in one place.
You and your teams won’t have to look very far for real-time data on purchase orders, inventory levels, and other business processes.
Commonly used by many large businesses around the world, Boomi is a quick and intelligent connector for your important applications. The streamlined flow of information between these applications ultimately results in productivity for your business.
You’ll automate processes and increase efficiency from your clients as well.
Why Is Integration Important?
The Boomi integration platform lets businesses in different industries connect data between their key applications without needing or maintaining hardware or software. If you’re currently using NetSuite as your core ERP system, your business can also benefit from information stored in other applications - they don’t have to be separate.
Keeping information and people working separately results in what we call the “swivel-chair approach”. This occurs when various team members go back and forth between systems to obtain data that is stored in each one. It results in data loss, human error, and inefficiency due to time lost searching with different systems.
A flow of data between your ERP and other applications will result in better communication across your teams as well as increased productivity, as they’ll spend less time searching for data between applications.
So, an eCommerce business, for example, can benefit from a steady flow of important information between the team bringing in the orders and the team fulfilling them. Thanks to the right software integration, they’re ensuring they have enough inventory to keep customers happy.
Integrated Systems Planning with GURUS

They’ll help you look ahead and, based on your business’ objectives, can guide you on what kind of application integrations your teams can benefit from.
