Improvements seen by moving from MS Access to MS SQL-based web app
- Reduce remote user access hurdles (removes VPN, Remote Desktop).
- Reduce issues that can arise from running an MS Access application in a non-homogenous computing environment. (Different version of Windows and Office, Macs and PCs etc), such as reference conflicts and out dated libraries.
- Scalability – MS Access is not designed for enterprise-level applications or large amounts of data. It has a file size limitation of 2GB. MS SQL is designed for significantly larger applications.
- As an MS Office-based desktop application, MS Access cannot always leverage features many users have grown accustomed to with modern Web applications (e.g. friendlier user interface, mobile responsiveness).
