Hello, if you’re watching this video, chances are you already know that you can quickly neatly build great databases with Microsoft Access. You may also know that skilled developers can enhance the database to create sophisticated feature-rich fully functioning applications and using the free Microsoft Runtime license for access, you don’t even have to pay market of the price for it licenses for your users so your business could benefit from a bespoke line of business applications at a much lower cost than a one-size-fits-all off-the-shelf package. However, you also want a low-cost way of sharing your database with your colleagues, especially your remote workers and those at other sites. This is where cloud hosted access from your office anywhere comes in. here’s a quick explanation of how it works:

First we recommend splitting the database into front-end and back-end. The front-end is where you have the forms, queries and reports, and the back-end where you have the tables themselves, then we put both of these files together on a remote desktop server running in our UK datacentre. These used to be known as terminal servers as nothing runs on the local PC, it behaves like a simple terminal. You run your Access database as a remote application and connect to it over the Internet. It will look and feel exactly the same as it would as if it was running on your computer – but Access doesn’t run on your computer, it runs on the remote server. The only things traveling over the Internet are keyboard and mouse clicks one way, and the screen changes the other. This means it is really quick, and you can connect to it from any device including PCs Apple Mac iPads and Android devices. You can now even connect using a web browser on Apple Macs and even Google Chromebooks. You can connect to it from anywhere in a world where you have an internet connection including over 3, 4, or 5G on your mobile.

Let’s see it in action using the old Northwind traders sample database. We’re showing this using one of the connection methods called remote app. While a video is playing here’s some other benefits of hosting Access with Your Office Anywhere.
