Cloud Access is developed in HTML5, which means you can reach your application from any modern web browser. Be it on a PC, Mac, or even mobile devices.
Cloud Access Application
Your application stays in Access so it works just like before, and is hosted online instead of installed directly on the user’s machine. With a hosted version of your application, you will never have to deal with installation related issues since your clients use an HTML5 enabled web browser as a window into your program that is already set up on the server. Users get to use your application with their own files from any computer they want, including Apple OSX and even smartphones and tablets.
With some minor tweaks to your current Ms Access application, we can host your product remotely on a cloud based server. Multiple users can run their own independent sessions of your application using IE, Firefox, Chrome or Safari. You can host multiple users from multiple different clients on the same server, at the same time.
A cloud based MS Access Application has many advantages, such as:
SageKey CloudAccess FAQ
Do I have to rewrite my application to have it hosted in the cloud?
No. Cloud Access virtualizes your whole application and brings it to the cloud.
What DOES have to happen to bring my application to the cloud?
Since cloud hosting is a different environment than a desktop machine, some tweaks or changes will be needed in areas where your application interracts with the machine, hardware or other software.
What about changes for updates to my application later?
Once SageKey Software has evaluated the Access application and made any initial changes, you get the application back. Then when making a update, you can use the documented changes as a roadmap for what to look out for, and ask us for any unknowns. You can contact us for advice or hire us to test it all out before you launch the update, and as always, if you have trouble with the launch, our support staff is here to help.
How does an update work for the end users?
When you upload your updated version to your CloudAcces server, the clients will be immediately given the new version to use. Anyone who is currently using the application will get the new version on the next time the launch your program.
What do the users have to install to use my CloudAccess hosted application?
Nothing! Users will access the application through an HTML5 enabled web browser, which is any modern browser these days.
What platforms can users access my application from?
As long as the system has an HTML5 enabled web browser then the you can access the application. This means it can be PC, MAC, Tablet or even SmartPhone!
What if the user has limited rights on the computer or the IT department filters what their systems can access?
Connecting to and using CloudAccess hosted applications is done over regular web traffic, so if the user can get to the internet to access websites then they’ll be able to use your application.
Does the user have to log in form the same machine each time?
No. User’s will have a username and a password that can be used to reach your application and their own hosted files from any HTML5 enabled browser, on any machine.
