Office 365 Business Subscription Plans To Be included
Microsoft plans to add Microsoft Access database to its Office 365 Business and Office 365 Business Premium subscription plans.
The above plans currently do not provide this all powerful Access application but from the 1st of December until the end of January 2017 will get this automatically updated to their accounts.
Microsoft Access: Office 365 Business Subscription Plans To Be included
Be aware, if an organisation subscribing to either of those two plans has elected to get Office 365 updates via the “deferred channel” update process, then Microsoft Access will start to arrive in June 2017. The Office 365 updates so-called “channels,” arrive every four months are called the “deferred channel.” Therefore, “first release for deferred channel” update release arrives every four months and is designed for testing purposes.
Microsoft Access is best described as a database management system (or RDBMS – a relational database management system) and is used to develop business and professional applications that doesn’t require too much IT end user support (well, according to Microsoft anyway!)
“Access is a great database management solution for small businesses because it makes collecting and storing data accessible on the desktop — without requiring support from an IT administrator,” Microsoft’s announcement explained.
Microsoft lately seems to be breathing new life into Microsoft Access database and in September, Microsoft announced that Access 2016 was receiving support for dBase files which had been removed from Access 2013.

Ultimately, any new user to Access will need help and so I offer my eBooks to help get you started and maintain a disciplined way to building, implementing and running an Access database.
