Software Tree Wins Prestigious 2021 DEVIES Award for its Gilhari Microservice Framework: Damodar Periwal

Software Tree, a data integration software company founded by UW–Madison alumnus Damodar Periwal, has received the 2021 DEVIES Award for developer and engineering innovation in the code frameworks/libraries category for its latest product, Gilhari™. The DEVIES Awards recognize excellence in developer tools, products, and technology across 20+ categories.

The 2021 DEVIES Awards received hundreds of nominations, and Gilhari was selected as an award winner based on three criteria: (1) attracting notable attention and awareness in the software industry; (2) general regard and adoption by the developer, engineering & IT community; and (3) being a technical leader in its sector for innovation.

JSON is a popular data-interchange format in the software industry. Gilhari is a flexible microservice framework that makes it easy for developers to create modern applications by simplifying the persistence of JSON objects in relational databases. These databases include Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, IBM DB2, MySQL, Postgres, and SQLite. Using Gilhari, developers can quickly develop high-performance, database-agnostic, and Docker-compatible RESTful solutions that need to interact with JSON data in cloud or on-premises.

“We are thrilled to be recognized by the DEVIES Awards, the definitive award for the development technology industry,” said Damodar Periwal, founder and CEO of Software Tree. “We developed Gilhari so that developers don’t have to jump through hoops to adapt to modern computing trends. This recognition validates Software Tree’s relentless pursuit of creating powerful and practical products that are based on KISS (Keep It Simple and Straightforward) principles and solve some fundamentally important problems for the software industry.”
