Open Your Data to New Applications with...

Update Legacy Systems
without Touching the Code.
It’s Ready-To-Go

The need for business intelligence and reporting means that modern businesses need simultaneous access to data from SQL as well as COBOL or Btrieve. The very nature of legacy applications’ data—in many cases a record-based architecture—does not fit well into a traditional SQL-based RDBMS paradigm of table and record definitions.

c‑treeRTG enables your legacy applications to integrate with Business Intelligence (BI), reporting, and analytics tools such as Microsoft Power BI, Tableau, Qlik, MicroStrategy, SAP Business Objects, IBM Cognos, etc.

c‑treeRTG also empowers COBOL applications to work with Integration Platforms (iPaaS) such as Informatica, Dell Boomi, Jitterbit, SnapLogic, MuleSoft, Oracle, TIBCO, SAP, Software AG, etc.

With our unique approach of focusing on the data, rather than on the program code, you avoid delays and latencies created by tedious exporting operations and long batch processes. Integrate your data files directly, in real-time, with your BI system using real-time SQL capabilities and transaction-oriented interfaces (JDBC, ODBC, PHP, ADO.NET, Python, etc.).

Keep Your Application Logic Intact

Little to Zero Development Needs

The FairCom c‑treeRTG family maintains the simplicity of keeping your application logic as intact as possible while offering a much better substitute for your current data storage technology. This solution allows you to replace your existing database or data storage with minimum—sometimes zero—impact on your source code. By providing specific drivers for multiple environments, c‑treeRTG can be plugged into your existing application with some simple steps, such as replacing libraries, or just relinking your runtimes. With c‑treeRTG you get all the benefits of a high-end client/server database that supports full transaction processing, automatic recovery, and real-time replication—and it is continuously evolving.

Preserve Your Investment

Modernization and Rationalization of Your Software

In spite of being called “legacy” most of these systems are part of the core systems backing today’s major corporations, with their importance growing. For example, in a survey released by Micro Focus in 2020, 92 percent of respondents said their COBOL applications are strategic to their organization’s operations. This is eight percent higher than what was reported in a 2017 survey.

c-treeRTG offers the ability to preserve the investment made over many years in these legacy systems, while at the same time modernizing them without changing a single line of code for COBOL (minimal code changes for Btrieve). By providing interfaces to access your data in multiple languages—Java, C/C++, PHP, .NET, etc.—you can develop new modules in any modern language, and have them integrated to your legacy system. All that, just by converting your data to c‑treeRTG.

Customer comments on c-treeRTG

“Since adopting c-treeRTG at Beaver Street Fisheries, we are now able to run BI reports and queries in real-time, straight from the COBOL data files. This tool allowed us to dramatically reduce the time needed to extract the information from our COBOL system to support the business decision process. Next steps will be to improve availability by implementing real-time replication, and fail-over.”
