What is Axisbase?
Axisbase is a database system that you can use to track any kind of information your company deals with on a daily basis. Axisbase can be compared to other personal/office database tools and it is also a database server.
Axisbase presents itself as an application that combines the desktop tool with a server. Generally, there are 2 options for data applications: Either you put the data on a database connected to a web server (such as MySQL or SQL Server) and hand-code a web application for handling that data or you have to use desktop or locally connected applications like spreadsheets or Microsoft Access.
It is usual to keep the data in two different places because of this disconnect.
Axisbase allows you to store the data on an internet-visible server and actually manipulate it just like locally stored data. You will be able to develop a web application that connects to the same database as well. With this you can have the best of both worlds.
