Microsoft Access Database Conversions
If you have outgrown your Microsoft Access database, consider migrating your database to Microsoft’s powerful business database system, SQL Server. Keep your existing Access screens and designs intact on a robust, scalable and reliable backend solution.
TIP: Data centralization will eliminate the need for additional software and provide a streamlined updating process.
High-level database security
The security of SQL server is better and stronger than that of Microsoft Access. With a 128-bit encryption and remote data storage, SQL Server can easily migrate your Access databases to its secure platform.
Access databases degrade over time due to its need for regular maintenance. SQL Server features capabilities like triggers, transaction logs and repair processes on a central database system, offering stability and data integrity.
Scheduled maintenance and backups
24x7 usage can lead to performance issues in Access databases. The built-in features of SQL Server include the ability to automatically schedule backups at runtime, even when users are active. Access data cannot be backed up if users are actively editing the data, making it difficult to back up your database.
Data does not stay idle or unchanged. As data is edited, SQL Server has the capability to revert changes using triggers and other built-in features. Microsoft Access does not have the rollback feature.
Improved data transfer
Access transfers the entire data table across the network, which can take time and cause delays. SQL server pointing out only the data that needs to be transferred, significant improving the transfer process.
