Selenium is great for web automation.

SOAPUI is great for middleware checking. SOAPUI comes in a free and non-free version. The non-free version is so much easier to use than the free version that the amount of time you save will more than pay for the tool.

There are almost no tools that will automate desktop GUI in the open source universe. Some to check out are Appium Desktop and AutoIT. Appium drives Windows apps via Selenium Webdriver so this may be a natural fit for you. AutoIT only works with native Microsoft controls.
