Link accounting system to Sharepoint.

We are in the evaluation stages of Sharepoint in our company. We use Sage Timberline Office Accounting software and we need to be able to link to this data within Sharepoint. The Timberline software is a Pervasive database back-end. Is it possible to create read/write access within Sharepoint to a 3rd party database and if so, what's the best way to go about doing this?

Of course this isn't a out of box feature.

You can use the Pervasive SQL .NET connector - http://ww1.pervasive.com/developerzone/access_methods/ADO.Net_9.10_SDK_readme.html

and write a custom application page and/or webpart.

Typically it isn't best practice to write directly to your third party database, unless you know the schema very well. There could be logic that you are not aware of.
Wondering if you do go any farther with the connection to Timberline.  I have a client looking to do the same thing.
