Hi :)
One point that may have become muddled in translation is that it is only
the front-end that needs to be copied, or re-created on multiple machines.
The stable back-end could be on a server so that everyone is using the same
data.  As one person adds data everyone else would be able to see that data
on their various machines.

Everyone can have the same frontend too (so it's keep updated) if its
definition resides on the server side.
Not necessarily in the same db instance or even db type. That's the
way of Kexi even if "only" local SQLite instances are used.
All combinations possible: local data + shared frontend, shared data +
local frontend, everything shared, nothing shared.
This is an entry point to the cloud infra.

Without this, "splited database" with local frontend sounds still very
"Access way" no matter how we criticize it.

Also and idea, for a higher level operation is based on 3-tier
architecture where users have access to business logic and not to
physical database instances. Reasons being: reliability,
maintainability and security.
