I'm sure the OP could build a .NET service in a few hours to accomplish this, provided he knows the language. He could probably do it faster natively in Java, or any of the other plethora of languages supported on IBM i.
The more people, computers, languages, frameworks, etc, that you add vastly increases the complexity.

I would love it if I could get our .NET team to deploy code in a few
hours. I'm not the boss of them.
I would love it if I could get our network team to coordinate with the
.NET team and spin up a server and make the networking / firewall / VLAN
work in a few hours. I'm not the boss of them either.
I am the boss of PASE. Which is why I'm looking for the full GNU gcc
tool chain in PASE. I can call a PASE program from RPG and get the
answer back. No network latency / authentication / snooping issues to
deal with. All the debugging happens in one seat - mine. This is why I
generally prefer a single platform architecture when I have a choice.
Different organisations have different situations, and will come to a
different conclusion. Vive la différence!
