Middleware – Connecting Systems Together
Middleware can be any number of programs for systems that help one system or one group of individuals communicate with another. Middleware is frequently referred to as Enterprise Application Integration or EAI or any number of other terms such as application integration middleware, integration, application development and app development. Any one of these terms depending on their context can be correct.
Middleware or any program that connects two systems together frequently becomes needed as businesses grow. Complications can occur when different systems need to exchange data. Some software or systems have plugins that let them pass information to other systems. Often times these plugins are limited to a few key programs. Even more frequently there isn't any plugin at all. Frequently a custom application or “middleware” is needed. While businesses are growing the need for more complex applications and programs become a necessity. However, frequently these two systems or programs will not communicate. This can create duplicate entry, extra man hours and exponentially increase the likelihood of errors.
Custom applications such as middleware will help a business deal with legacy systems, data conversions, data transfer and much more. TJC’s middleware applications and integration can greatly simplify the flow of information from one system to another throughout a business.
Application development and custom program can also connect you to the newest mobile applications. Middleware can take data from your dependable business applications and pass it in a usable format to a custom or other mobile app.
TJC’s middleware development team consists of support, systems engineers, and software developers. Each project is evaluated and supported as efficiently as possible while still meeting your goals. If you are looking for team players we are it, and can work with your programming staff, within your team or as a separate group.

Middleware is computer software components or people and their applications. The software consists of a set of services that allows multiple processes running on one or more machines to interact. This technology evolved to provide for interoperability in support of the move to coherent distributed architectures, which are most often used to support and simplify complex distributed applications. It includes web servers, application servers, and similar tools that support application development and delivery. Middleware is especially integral to modern information technology based on XML, SOAP, Web services, and service-oriented architecture.
Middleware sits "in the middle" between application software that may be working on different operating systems. It is similar to the middle layer of a three-tier single system architecture, except that it is stretched across multiple systems or applications.

If you are looking for team players we are it, and can work with your programming staff, within your team or as a separate group. In middleware development, many groups may come together to achieve several objectives and flexibility is the name of the game. TJC is here to help you.
