Microsoft Partners With University Of Arizona In Tucson, AZ

Note: Need a Microsoft Access programmer in Tucson AZ? MS Access Solutions has the experience and skills to develop your Access database. Contact us when you need the best Microsoft Access Programmer in Tucson, Arizona. We also provide the best Microsoft Access programmer in Tempe Arizona.

As Microsoft Access programmers serving businesses and organizations in Tucson AZ, we at MS Access Solutions sometimes get caught up in the code intensive environment of the database developer. Whether we are performing Microsoft Access consulting, or MS Access development, or some other technology intensive task like converting MS Access to an Access front end and SQL Server database storage; we tend to work within a very narrow focus. The following information, from Microsoft and the U of Arizona, in Tucson, AZ demonstrates that Microsoft is a very large and unique company with a great deal of interest in technology innovation.

The University of Arizona and Microsoft Corp. are partnering on a new cloud-computing research center to study issues like how to make power-hungry computer data centers more efficient and sustainable. The UA's Cloud Infrastructure Renewal Center will foster research on new data-center technologies, boost workforce development for data centers and cloud computing, and help faculty, UA optics professor Robert Norwood said as he announced the cloud partnership Wednesday at the TenWest Festival.

Cloud computing — essentially the practice of storing and managing computer data on remote servers linked to the internet, rather than using on-site computer servers — is growing exponentially as online storage and software demands more data storage. But the massive data centers operated by Microsoft and other tech companies face huge challenges in scaling up cloud capacity, including managing energy use and space, and training enough engineers and technicians to design and run them.

"We're trying to solve the problem of scaling the cloud, essentially enabling more people to easily access their information, and doing that in a way that is sustainable," said Norwood, a professor in the UA College of Optical Sciences who is spearheading the effort. . . .

. . . Microsoft has invested more than $15 billion in one of the world’s biggest cloud-computing networks, with 54 data centers serving 140 countries, said Christian Belady, general manager of cloud infrastructure strategy and architecture in Seattle. Belady said the company has installed 1.26 gigawatts of renewable energy to power its data centers and has a goal of using 100 percent renewable energy while minimizing water use.

From an article in the News

Microsoft has always been forward thinking when it comes to environmental issues. The Personal Computers from IBM were the first to use Microsoft operating systems and they were burning electricity rapidly. In fact the castings on the first group of PCs on the market would become warm from the heat generated by the computer. Microsoft and IBM soon corrected the problem with greater cooling capacity from the fans. Also, the first Personal Computers had very little power. In fact, the very first version of Microsoft Access would not run on the first Personal Computers - thankfully computers had evolved so Microsoft Access was able to run properly. It was not until internal hard drives were installed in the PCs that software like Microsoft Access had enough memory and computer power to operate successfully.

Cloud computing saves time, money and natural resources by saving electricity. We think Microsoft is on the right track by promoting the best possible methosds for using less electricity and still improving computing efficiency.

Microsoft in the Cloud is always a potential solution for your database requirements. At MS Access Solutions, we can help you make the right decision about your Microsoft Access database programming, development and deployment.

Microsoft Access Now Supports dBASE

Microsoft Access now contains dBASE file support (.dbf) in the Access for Office 365 and desktop versions. This functionality was removed, some say by accident, and has now been restored by popular demand from the developer community.

According to Microsoft, subscribers of Microsoft Access 2016 for Office 365 had immediate use of this update. By adding this feature into Access, users can import or link to data stored in dBASE databases using the MS Access software. Microsoft later added the dBASE connectivity to Office Insider members and then commercial Office 365 subscribers and consumers.

The return of dBASE connectivity feature to MS Access is largely due to the develper community and that would include the programmers here at MS Access Solutions. We were among the several developers and Microsoft Access consultants who voiced our request to reinstall the dBASE feaute back into MS Access.

In 2015, one consultant wrote to the Access User Voice blog.

Access has always been about connecting to other data sources. Excel can still connect to dBASE files, but support for Access to connect was dropped. You can see from all the chatter, that there really is a lot of people that still use dBASE files for data transfer.
- Jack Stockton.

Jack, we definitely agreed with you when you wrote your comments and we are very pleased that Microsoft restored this functionality to Microsoft Access.
