Multiple or Single FileMaker applications?

We are looking to create a multi module Filemaker solution to cover several different areas of our business.


Being very new to Filemaker I can see that there could at least a couple of ways of building our solution, but I would be interested to hear how others would think it should be done.


The 2 options we are considering are:-

1. Create a single Filemaker application and add different database tables and forms etc for each module/area.

2. Create multiple Filemaker applications and then use links to the other Filemaker applications to share overlapping database tables to avoid duplication etc.


Is one way better than the other, or is there another way of doing it?
