Get MS Access hosting solutions in two ways – Hosted SharePoint or Hosted Desktop.

Are you looking to migrate from Office 365 as it no longer supports SharePoint Access services?

After April 2018 update by Microsoft, SharePoint Access services have been discontinued in Office 365. If you were using SharePoint Access services on Office 365 earlier, you need a different solution now. There is a simple solution to this problem. Apps4Rent offers hosted SharePoint 2016 Enterprise, a SharePoint version which continues to support SharePoint Access services and also includes the advanced features of SharePoint Online.

Are you looking to build a new MS Access database application and share it on SharePoint?

If you enjoy building nifty applications with MS Access, now you can build and host them easily on a SharePoint 2016 site. The nice thing is that you don’t need MS Access software installed on the end users’ desktops. With the front-end built with MS Access, and data stored naturally in SQL backend built into SharePoint, you get online scalable applications that are glued together by SharePoint Access services in SharePoint 2016. The suitable plan for you is hosted SharePoint 2016 Enterprise.

If you have built an Access database application that resides on a server or desktop, and are now looking to move them to be accessible from anywhere?

Perhaps you have invested significant effort in developing productive applications on MS Access that work well in your business but lack universal accessibility. You do not want to rewrite any new code and yet wish to offer access to users from anywhere on all kinds of devices. In that case, a Virtual Desktop is the right solution for you. On the hosted virtual desktop, the Access applications work just as they do in your in-house server/desktop environment. Pick a suitable Access hosting plans based on a virtual Desktop and we will help you with the migration.

If you have applications built with older MS Access versions and want to host it on SharePoint to save per-user costs?

There is no easy way to do it, but it can be done on a case-to-case basis, depending on the MS Access version and how complex the application is. In general, it is easier to migrate applications developed with newer versions such as Access 2013 and 2016. Successful migration may require reprogramming or reconfiguration to host your MS Access applications onto SharePoint. There will be a cost associated in migration and integration, but it will save you per-user hosting costs.
