Host a Database in the Cloud with Office 365: If your Office 365 plan includes SharePoint, you can host Access 2013 databases with no extra setup required. Your data will be more secure, backed-up, and available via the cloud. You’ll be able to harness the power of Access 2013 in the cloud simply and easily.
Get Started Faster: Each table template comes with fields, views, relationships, and data-integrity rules, so you can take advantage of all the great features of Access 2013 with a single click. It’s easy to combine different table templates into a single app or tweak an existing table by adding or removing fields.
A Polished User Interface: Do you use table templates, import existing data, or define your own schema from scratch? If so, Access 2013 will provide your database with a great user interface automatically. Without any effort on your part, Access will generate views for your data, including a searchable list view and an Excel-like datasheet. If you have related data, like Invoices and Line Items, Access will automatically create views that show these items together, allowing you to drill-through to get more details.
Access Apps = SharePoint Apps: Access 2013 web databases work great with SharePoint 2013, which has been enhanced in this release with apps for SharePoint. Users can discover and share Access apps through the public SharePoint App Store or a private App Catalogue. Installing an app takes just a few clicks.
SQL Server Back-end: One of the biggest improvements in Access 2013 is one you may not even notice, except that your whole app will be faster, more reliable, and work great with large amounts of data. When Access databases are published to SharePoint, whether on premise or through Office 365, a full-fledged SQL Server database is automatically created to store the data.
