Yesterday I was asked about migration paths for Access applications. Yes, there are still a spread active group (usually at the department level).
I have worked with several alternatives, however at the end you should consider four main requirements:
and the requirements of your organization.
I would recommend you create some Proof of concepts and evaluate which is best for your enviornment.
With this you may come to some conclusions:
In those scenarios, you may need other tools as Reports migration into Reporting Services or migration from previous versions of MS Access.
Finally, you should think in coexistence, and look for strategies or third party solutions to get this.
I received a question about SLAM, this may work well with some applications, mixing [1,2] and [3,4] scenarios; so you really design a SharePoint solution and sync with a database model.
Is there any third party tool that may help me to the overall process?
There is no magic tool, so besides the tools linked; you should review Partners directory.
Or pehaps just wait to some preview of Office 2010 and check if there are some specific improvement in the integration with MS Access.
