With the broad use of MS Office, Microsoft Access became very popular for building Windows desktop applications. The result of this is that today there exists a large number of companies who have Access applications for the desktop that they now need to move to the web as quickly and cost effectively as possible.
It turns out that Microsoft's solution for moving Access applications to the web requires either: A) publishing to Sharepoint and even then, there are serious limitations when it comes to reporting and the ability to work with applications that include vba code (which most serious applications include,) or B) using Visual Studio.Net which takes a lot of time and requires a lot of coding!
As a consequence of this, we have seen a very rapidly growing base of MS Access customers adopting Alpha Five v11 because of its ability to build powerful and secure web applications (with reporting, dashboards, mapping, multimedia, scheduling) very quickly compared to Visual Studio.Net and other development options.
See the outcome (in the chart below) of the survey we ran with Alpha Five v11 customers, where we asked about the productivity of Alpha Five v11 vs other tools they had used in the past for building web applications.
To assist Access customers making the move to Alpha Five v11 we have now created a white paper and provided more information on this page http://info.alphasoftware.com/bring-your-access-applications-to-web-and-mobile-devices
