Topic outline:

What do you answer when someone says Access is dying? That Microsoft is discontinuing VBA? That Access does not cut it for enterprise use? That Access is not stable? Access does not work with the web?

The fact is not a month goes by when I don't get a call from a potential customer saying "they heard" Access was dying and looking for alternatives. Wait, what???

Join us as we get down to the details of why people believe this rumour and how we can counter it, plus "why does IT hate Access?"
Plus, one shocking truth you will not hear anywhere else!

Juan Soto will offer detailed responses to each of these questions during the session.

Do join us for this important event. Your future as Access developers may depend on it!
