It's not about generating data anymore.

Every business is generating data.

Instead, you need to take control of the data you have. You need to organize it and display it so powerful insights can emerge.

That's why there’s Microsoft Access.

Access is designed to work with Office 365.

Use templates to build databases faster.

Everything you need is there -- tables, queries, forms, reports, and more.

Just add data.

New database templates have an attractive, easy-to-use interface and offer a consistent user experience so you can stop worrying about your users getting lost in the numbers.

Work smarter…and find the stories in your data with Access.
