Microsoft Access was a leader in the desktop database space before cloud computing databases became a thing. Back then, businesses widely used MS Access in creating internal applications that help make their processes more efficient, and their employees more productive.
But in today’s era of cloud computing and Internet of Things (IoT), the use of cloud-based technologies not only became mainstream, it became a business imperative. This required companies to build cloud web apps or migrate their existing desktop databases to the cloud so they can keep up with today’s fast-paced digital business. For organizations that created many of their applications on Access, this can be quite a challenge.
While it is still possible to create “modern” cloud-based apps using Microsoft Access, they are made to only work with SharePoint. As a result, businesses are forced to use SharePoint hosting, install extra services, and pay monthly fees, among others. But this does not have to be the case.
