Google’s latest ‘No-Code’ platform makes it easy to transition old legacy desktop databases to the cloud. Microsoft Access 2010, one of the most popular desktop databases, stopped receiving security updates and main line support on October 13, 2020. This means tens of thousands of applications will need to find a new solution. Google Cloud, a leading cloud provider, hopes tofill that space with Google AppSheet - a product that not only modernizes the application experience, but also frees users from their desktop suite and allows them to work from any device, anywhere. This Roadmap explains what the experience of moving to AppSheet is like and the steps involved to gain the most success moving to a modern platform
With so many databases to move in very little time, we take a quick transformation path with your Access Databases to ensure that they are moved to the cloud and modernized with the least amount of friction and internal use of resources. We also work with your stakeholders who use the apps on a daily basis to ensure that the new app is taking advantage of everything our latest technology has to offer, such as maps and phone support
Discovery on each Access database with the stakeholders to ensure the new app meets all the needs of the business process.
Extract the data and structure from Access using an automated tool which will help quickly migrate to Google Cloud SQL.
Using the most modern techniques and an eye on mobile compatibility we build an amazing user experience with Google tools, including Google AppSheet, Apps Script or App Engine
MS Access was a revolutionary tool because it allowed non-technical employees to develop data-driven or data-based computer applications to solve common business process problems.
With the advent of cloud computing and modern web and mobile application ubiquity, MS Access (usually being localized to a client desktop) has become irrelevant in the market.
Google’s AppSheet, a ‘no-code’ web & mobile application development platform, provides even greater business process automation and problem-solving utility due to its mobile-first deployment strategy and cloud-based architecture.
AppSheet allows you to connect to Data in Google Sheets, Google Cloud SQL, and many other data sources
Being “mobile-first” means that AppSheet gives you the ability to capture photos, geotag, sign with your finger, scan barcodes codes, read NFC tags and more, all with your mobile device. Advanced features also include Machine Learning and AI integrations such as Predictive Modeling, Natural Language Processing and Optical Character Recognition. Google AppSheet is a very approachable and truly ‘no-code’ platform, making it easy for existing technical staff or non-technical staff to build their own applications.
