NetSuite Business Operating System (NS-BOS) provides a Software as a Service (SaaS) application development platform for software developers, ISVs and VARs, to create industry specific applications targeting all spectrums of vertical markets.

NetSuite's Business Operating System (BOS) provides a unique development environment for the creation of business applications that are both created on and complement the power of one system: NetSuite. The BOS platform provides more than access to an underlying infrastructure; it provides access to an award-winning set of business management functionality. A rich set of development and testing tools allow developers to develop new applications and whole vertical solutions using this core NetSuite platform.

  • NS-BOS provides the complete SuiteFlex toolkit for business process customisation and verticalisation.
  • SuiteFlex customisation is simpler than competitive toolkits because it's based on industry standards and emphasizes "click not code" system tailoring.
  • Customisations and extensions to NetSuite migrate seamlessly with each upgrade putting an end to the headaches and heartaches of application development and maintenance — a true breakthrough in application development.
  • NEW SuiteScript D-Bug
    • SuiteScript D-Bug is the first real-time, web-based interactive debugger to allow code validation and testing as third-party applications run on the application server.
    • Unlike most if not all SaaS development environments that support testing of third-party applications on client machines, SuiteScript D-Bug enables third-party applications to be tested in an actual server environment against live data, allowing developers to see and correct the behavior exhibited by the application in real-world conditions.
    • SuiteScript D-Bug promotes the health of third party SaaS applications.
