This is the first part of a Netsuite Connector review series I have conducted. In this post, I review Boomi’s capabilities for building custom Netsuite integrations, by demonstrating in detail how Boomi could be used by administrators and developers alike to build professional Netsuite integrations in a short amount of time, without writing one line of code.
I’ll keep the blog post brief, the video below will review every aspect of the integration in substantial detail.
I have formulated the review to assess Boomi in terms of it’s ability to build Netsuite integrations in a no-code fashion. I will be demonstrating its capabilities in terms of the following aspects:
The process (integration flow) I have built is based on the following business case:
“A deposit taking bank places encrypted transaction files once daily in an S3 bucket, and would like to integrate each csv file into Netsuite. The lines in the text file, which correspond to transactions, have to be posted as Journal Entries (one double entry record per line), with the Accounts being selected based on a field (transaction type) in the CSV file.”
The process flow goes something like this:
Being a new user to the Boomi platform myself, I can say that the tool has exceeded my expectations in many ways. Especially compared to some other popular options on the market like Celigo for example.
The modular nature of the integration platform allows you to build reusable components, each fulfilling a particular integration task, which could be put together on the drag and drop canvas, to create complex multi-path processes, in most cases without writing a single line of code. Having worked with many other tools, I was always in a situation where I needed something that was not there, whether it was an external library, a formatting function, an out of the box connector to some third-party application or the ability to create multiple process paths to treat data differently based on some conditions. Everything I needed was there out of the box with Boomi.
Here’s a video review where I analyse the process I built for the above use case in detail.
