Enables .NET and Java developers to quickly transform desktop-centric applications into Web APIs

THRIFTLY offers companies a way to repurpose their existing desktop applications and use them in the cloud and in mobile applications, states Riaz Merchant, CEO

Mertech Data Systems is pleased to announce the launch of THRIFTLY.IO™, a Hybrid Cloud API platform for Windows developers. THRIFTLY enables Windows developers using .NET, Java, and other programming languages to transform existing functions and methods in their applications into Web APIs, without requiring them to write additional code for handling API protocols.

With THRIFTLY, developers can create APIs in the same way they write any function or method in one of the supported programming languages. By simplifying the complexities of building Web APIs, programmers of any skill level can quickly build and deploy Web APIs.

An API developed with THRIFTLY supports JSON, SOAP, REST and BINARY protocols simultaneously via HTTP and TCP transports. THRIFTLY’s write-once serve-any-way-you-want approach to APIs provides great flexibility and ease of development for companies looking to build pure cloud or hybrid cloud solutions.

“Companies have invested billions of dollars in Windows-based software. Organizations must find a way to maintain and support their Windows-based applications, while at the same time build newer applications and mobile apps to run on a Cloud infrastructure,” says Riaz Merchant, CEO of Mertech. “APIs are a great way to address this challenge - THRIFTLY simplifies this process of building APIs by repurposing existing functional interfaces as Web APIs for private or public deployment .”

Riaz continues, "By focusing on making changes in their code only in the interface layer while keeping the business logic intact, companies will be able to give new life to their applications in a Cloud or Hybrid Cloud infrastructure, without making a significant investment in rewriting their code."

"APIs are a critical component of Digital Transformation, and THRIFTLY brings this API-centric thinking to enabling the integration of Windows desktop-only applications into the API economy. THRIFTLY offers companies a way to repurpose their existing desktop applications and use them in the cloud and in mobile applications.”

For companies looking to offer cloud-based solutions, THRIFTLY provides an excellent way to leverage investment in existing applications to build a bridge to the Cloud.
