Outgrown your Excel and Access?
Almost every company has applications that their employees have
built using Microsoft Excel and/or Access. As time goes by,
this sort of solution becomes less and less attractive
Excel wasn't really designed for multi-user access. In
multiuser environments Excel files can be easily trashed, even via innocent mistakes,
requiring frequent restorations and loss of work.
Access has limits to the number of users it can support well.
Access databases will eventually become corrupted
and require restoration from backup, which usually involves some loss of work.
As Excel and Access apps proliferate, your corporate intelligence becomes more distributed
into multiple locations that are impossible to query in a unified manner.
Commonly used subsets of your corporate data ultimately get copied, some copies get updated,
and eventually nobody knows which is the correct version.
There are actually products and consultants whose only
function is to recover data lost in Excel and Access files
that have been stretched past their intended limits.
