Migrating application software from one multivalue database to another can be challenging and costly due differences in tape formats, VOC/MD formats, dictionary structures, Basic program statement syntax, User Modes, print and print spooler architectures and commands, editor syntax, peripheral connectivity architectures and protocols, database installation and start-up procedures and database back-up procedures.
The key to limiting the cost of migration is to migrate to the database that best emulates your current database.
