Microsoft Access and similar desktop database applications are great tools but as your needs grow you may need an enterprise server-based solution.
Bob Coppedge has been working with databases for over 20 years so he is able to offer some perspective on what makes sense in various departmental and enterprise situations.
Capturing and storing data is not enough. The rewards come from the Business Intelligence (BI) that your company can gather from strategic queries and reports from your data store.
In this interview, Bob tells us when, why and how to migrate from Access to SQL Server and explains the Business Intelligence features of an enterprise solution. He talks about security, training and a great free local resource to learn more.
We even have some fun with some database trivia questions.
