Splitting Database Users

Last Modified: 2015-03-15
Hi Experts,

We have an in place Access 2000/2003 FE Application that is currently linked to 50% SQL BE and the other 50% is still in Access BE.

Now management wants to split users to work in 2 locations, its a few blocks distance from one to the other.
What is the best way to organize that in terms of software development\architecture  regarding performance?

(Our IT guy claims that it would be best if database is on cloud and we access thru the web.., and he doesn't think that Access is the right product for that, however I am only familiar with Access/SQL programming)

What are my options?
