Most organizations are stuck up in decision making whether to go for Microsoft Access or .NET Framework with SQL Server. Access is more suitable for smaller groups of up to a dozen users, but outside these parameters, you should think about a SQL Server client/server model. Access is good enough for small organizations that do not intend to develop into large operations. Ever increasing operations results in an unstable access database causing error messages, low performance, and queries that take hours to run.
Migrate your Access applications to SQL Server now!!!
Migration allows you take advantage of SQL server’s advanced features at the same time maintain a link to the data in Access. SQL server provides optimized performance, better security and offers large terabytes sized databases that fit your growing business needs. Access has some limitations when it comes to scalability, security and data integrity. It is not suited for web-based solution as it provides only limited user interface. SQL server is a client/server architecture that is designed for mission-critical systems, whereas, Access is a file server system that is less reliable.
For database that are outdated a re-design in SQL server is more appropriate which improves productivity, performance, and processing time. If the database is moderately new and functional, then the need for expansion is achieved by converting your Access database to a web-based ASP.NET system.
Macrosoft helps you to migrate Access applications seamlessly right from documenting the existing system, requirements analysis, platform selection, design, development, and deployment.
