Rapid SharePoint Application Development Using Access
Microsoft Access has always been an excellent Rapid Application Development (RAD) tool for building data-centric desktop applications—but it has also been challenged when the need arises to move an application to the Web or to support a shared, multi-user environment. There are many reasons to move an application to the Web—centralized management of policy and data, centralized deployment for updates, and to enable browser-based access for users. Previous releases of Access have been able to meet some of these needs with mechanisms like linked tables, which allow data to be stored externally, or by using SharePoint for centralized storage of resources while retaining Access as the primary client application. With the release of Office 2010, the combination of SharePoint, Access, and Access Services now lets you publish an Access database application to the Web, requiring only a browser to use your Access Database applications. It also provides a much better experience when it comes to manageability.
