From Tiers to Intelligence
Have you ever wondered what a servlet container is and why it’s required to run SAS Web Report Studio? Or maybe wondered what the Object Spawner is and exactly what it does? Or even wondered what a repository is and how it relates to the SAS Metadata Server? And by the way, what is a SAS Metadata Server?
This paper is aimed at those of us whose answer to any of the above is ‘yes’. It seeks to summarise and clarify the terminology associated with the SAS9 Business Intelligence offering. The paper will contain a general overview of what the SAS Enterprise Intelligence Platform is. It will discuss the SAS9 multi-tiered environment and give an overview of the various SAS9 applications, including SAS Management Console, SAS Data Integration Studio and SAS Web Report Studio.
