While Oracle is an ORDBMS (Object Oriented Relational Database), Access is a RDBMS (Relational Database) only. This makes the two have a difference in terms of needs like interface requirements which either can act as a platform to serve the other. This makes the two compatible.
High assessment is required when you want to implement any global Oracle roll out. Normally, to make this program compatible with a Microsoft application, you have to be very good in programming to achieve even the smallest compatibility. This is because Oracle is tailor made while Access is compact. It comes with functionality that is built-in. Oracle can handle much more complicated databases whereas Access is a small application with limited database functionality.
Since Access is not as secure as Oracle, application within the Access platform can be utilized through Oracle to provide security.
Due to the optimal performance of Oracle, expert programmers perceive a lenient compatibility between Oracle and Microsoft Access and argue that, the two indeed can work together. By ignoring the context of compact manufacturer or rather the developer specifications, one can integrate the two applications using their own interfaces and application features. This does not mean inter-twining applications as a compact program, but to choose a facility in each and using it in another and vice-versa. Eventually, the experts deem that this is a great way to get results from each through hand picking applications from either.
