Announcing the FairCom c-treeRTG Products
Note: c-treeACE became FairCom DB in November 2020.
FairCom has launched a new series of products to get your projects going with little or no development time: the c‑treeRTG Ready-to-Go products. These products help you bring new performance, reliability, and data integrity to existing applications.
The c‑treeRTG products are built on FairCom’s field-proven c‑treeACE Advanced Core Engine. They enhance existing applications by replacing their simple file handlers with c‑treeACE technology.
Businesses have decades of resources invested in their legacy systems. They have carefully fine-tuned their business logic to reflect their needs. They have accumulated a wealth of data with these systems. Unfortunately, nobody is servicing these crucial applications: no new vendors, no new options.
FairCom has a solution that is ready to deploy: c‑treeRTG is a new family of product extensions dedicated to the VAR, ISV, or End-User who wants to update the file handler at the heart of an existing application without touching the code. These products easily update existing applications to the latest technology, enhancing performance, improving data integrity, and permitting access by applications using newer APIs such as SQL.
You get the performance, scalability, and data integrity of the c‑treeACE technology. And you open up your applications to simultaneous access by both the legacy application—with little to no rewriting—and by modern APIs such as SQL. This simple upgrade allows you to open up your applications to SQL access for reporting, statistical analysis, and data mining.
Many businesses have relied on legacy applications for decades. The data stored by these applications represents an invaluable profile of their businesses, products, and customers. Consider an ERP application that contains decades of customer buying history, product inventory levels, seasonal fluctuations, etc. They have been amassing an unequaled depth of industry knowledge. Now c‑treeRTG gives them access to this data for reports, spreadsheets, and analysis.
Finally you can mine new data—gathered in real-time—within the context of historical data accumulated over the years.
c‑treeRTG COBOL Edition
Many COBOL developers are already familiar with the first of c‑treeRTG products: c‑treeACE for COBOL. This product breathes new life into legacy COBOL applications by replacing existing COBOL file handlers with the c‑treeACE database engine. In our latest release, we have made such substantial advances that we have given the original COBOL product a new name: c‑treeRTG COBOL Edition.
c‑treeRTG BTRV Edition
With the success of c‑treeACE for COBOL, many FairCom customers have asked for the same “plug-and-play” technology for Btrieve™ applications. Our developers went to work on this request and, by popular demand, we now present the second member of the c‑treeRTG product line: FairCom c‑treeRTG BTRV Edition.
Are You Ready-to-Go?
Simultaneous SQL and ISAM access to legacy data has long been the Holy Grail for developers. Now c‑treeRTG brings you SQL and ISAM access faster than the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow. Unlock your legacy data!
