If you are using the Microsoft Access database management system, your demands will likely outpace both its capacity and computational limits. Handling these hurdles (hopefully with the right database support solution) before they become problems will be critical to keeping your databases running smoothly.

Just as your business quickly outgrew those handy Excel spreadsheets, your database is now slowing down and taking up more and more of your precious IT resources. If you fit this description, it’s probably time to transition to Microsoft SQL Server, either locally or in the cloud.
