Luke Chung will provide an overview of how large organizations successfully use Access, where it’s appropriate, where it’s not, and how to strategically take advantage of Access’ strengths and address its weaknesses. Mr. Chung will address how Access users, developers and IT managers can better understand Access' place within their organization’s overall database needs. It covers the basic concept of database evolution, and how database applications naturally evolve from Excel to Access to SQL Server. This presentation also helps managers anticipate situations where Access can no longer meet the needs of a particular application and how to anticipate and support those situations rather than being surprised by it.
Join Steve Clark as he explores the issues related to upsizing Microsoft Access applications to take advantage of the performance, security, and reliability of Microsoft SQL Server. Mr. Clark will outline the value of Access within your organization, discuss the decisions involved in upsizing, review available data architectures, and detail how to plan for an upsizing project.
