This paper explains the need to seriously consider moving the MS Application to the Web. It turns out that the Web provides a number of very compelling reasons for doing this such as: once the application has been moved to the Web, any authorized user can log onto the application from anywhere in the world. Also, different permissions and usage privileges can be assigned based on the logon. In addition, while "First" generation Web applications were often a bit slow, the AJAX technology embedded into Alpha Five Version 9 allows Web applications built in Alpha Five to be very fast, and offer a smooth "Desktop like" experience to the users. The paper explains how to move a Microsoft Access desktop application to the Web with Alpha Five.
