New Substitute for the Access Upsizing Wizard Announced

OneNumbus and Jasco posted Introducing Jasco® 2SQL™ Azure™ about a service for converting Access databases to SQL Azure (and SQL Azure) on 6/30/2011:

image_thumb[2]Help enable your employees to easily access up-to-date information for more effective decision making.

imageJasco 2SQL quickly and securely migrates mission critical data to Microsoft SQL Server or Microsoft Azure, which helps ensure your data can be used more effectively across your organisation and remains accessible to your users.

imageSounds to me like a pricey replacement for the Microsoft Access Upsizing Wizard and Access Data Projects (ADPs). It appears that Microsoft has informally deprecated ADPs, so perhaps 2SQLAzure has a chance of success.

For more details about moving Access tables to SQL Server and SQL Azure, see my Bibliography and Links for My “Linking Access tables to on-premise SQL Server 2008 R2 Express or SQL Azure in the cloud” Webcast of 4/26/2011 post of 4/24/2011.
