Microsoft Announces the Release of Access Apps for Office 365

Microsoft Access has now reached the commercial-grade and is ready for production use. Office 365 Government users will need to wait as that version of the app is still considered in the preview stage. Access apps are considered supplementary Web applications which are hosted on SharePoint. The new app works within Microsoft's Access relational database management system and are available to those individuals or organizations who have an active Office 365 Small Business, Midsize, Enterprise, or Education subscription.
