Why Mertech?

Switch your expensive legacy database without changing the application

Looking to switch from a Btrieve, Pervasive, or Actian transactional database engine?  BTR2SQL is the answer.   BTR2SQL will enable you to run your COBOL, Delphi, VB, and other applications with MS SQL Server, Oracle, and PostgreSQL seamlessly, without modifying your application.

Guide to modernizing Btrieve/P.SQL



Benefits of switching to mainstream DBMS

The initial phase of modernizing a legacy application involves updating the database, particularly if you are considering transitioning to a cloud-native environment. Legacy databases not only incur high licensing costs but also hinder business expansion. BTR2SQL breathes new life into your application by facilitating the migration from Actian Btrieve, Pervasive SQL, and Zen transactional engines to MS SQL Server, Oracle, and PostgreSQL databases with minimal or no need for code modifications.
