Andy,

 

Using MySQL as the data repository has the advantage of being centrally
managed, including enterprise backup and high-availability features, being
accessible from numerous client technologies, and being supported by ETS.

 

Using Filemaker Pro as a repository is possible, but you'll be looking at
peer and vendor support, and bearing responsibility for security, backups,
and availability.

 

Just some data points to consider in your analysis,

 

-Geoff

Subject: Question about Filemaker

 

Hi -

 

It seems there's a small team here on UVM's campus that uses Filemaker Pro
for their database needs. It's all internally (no outside access) which they
enter manually when they receive applications for a service of some sort.

 

Now they want to put this form online and have the data go to their
Filemaker Pro database.

 

How would they accomplish this? Any suggestions would be great.

 

Thanks
