Build apps that are easy to use and grow with your business*
The “App experience”
Never again worry about users getting “lost in the data” with apps that automatically keep an attractive, easy-to-use interface and consistent user experience. Access deals with the code that creates this professional look and feel.
Related items control
Users can take a peek at additional relevant information in the database without changing screens, so they have the right context when reviewing or entering information.
Entering data is now much easier and less error-prone for app users with drop downs and recommendations made upon beginning to type in data. Lookups allow for drawing relationships between records in different tables.
Share your data and control access to it more easily*
Apps for SharePoint deployment
With Access Services and SharePoint Online or on-premises SharePoint Server 2013, Access apps can now be easily managed and monitored through a company SharePoint site in a browser. This enables multi-user accessibility and the permissions control expected from SharePoint along with visibility on app usage.
Data stored in SQL
The back end has been moved to SQL Server and Microsoft Azure SQL Database to allow for added reliability, robust security, scalability and long-term manageability. Access applications now leverage standard SQL syntax and a true mission-critical back end, whether deployed on-premises or in the cloud.
