Microsoft Access Database has returned with more information on some of the data it’s collected on users over the last several years.
The company announced in a blog post today that it’s also working to roll out a feature that lets developers use Microsoft Access data for new types of applications, such as real-time analytics or cloud-based dashboards.
“We’re excited to announce the new Microsoft Access Data for Cloud APIs release.
It brings together data from the Microsoft Access database and the cloud, providing developers with the ability to query, extract, and visualize data from Microsoft Access databases across the Microsoft Azure cloud and other Microsoft Cloud services,” Microsoft said.
“This new API is also available to developers that have access to Microsoft Azure Active Directory data.
For more information, please read the Microsoft blog.”
The blog post also details how the data can be used in Microsoft Office applications.
For example, it shows how Microsoft Access can be leveraged to access data in Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Office.
The data can also be used to create custom dashboards for Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Office, or Microsoft Office Online.
Microsoft also mentioned that Microsoft Access will be available to anyone who’s signed up for the free subscription.
