Microsoft Access Conversion

Microsoft Access has been a very popular platform for building database driven applications for small businesses, within departments of large corporations, and by hobby programmers to create ad hoc customized desktop systems for handling the creation and manipulation of data. But Microsoft Access does not scale well. If data is accessed via a network, and/or used by more than a handful of people, latency and errors are common as it must rely on a Client-Server solution. Access is simply not designed to take up enterprise wide functionality nor is it capable of managing huge amounts of data that most companies require. The migration of MS Access database to a web based solution is natural progression. We at Pulse Solutions specialize in porting applications from legacy databases to powerful and scalable web applications removing all limitations, freeing network resources, making solutions scalable and user-friendly web applications.

Feedback is gathered as to the current functionality, data flow and upgrades required. Data structure upgrade: Pulse database architects take your Access based database to normalize it for performance and upgrade the structure to the latest database standards, Usually MySQL 5 or MS SQL 2008 is used as the new backend. User GUI: The Graphical User Interface is designed to mimic the access functionality as far as possible with the addition of new features and better usability. Technologies like AJAX and XML play a major role in the reconstruction of the application interface for maximum performance. Code...
