Overview of Middle-Tier Components
The middle tier of the SAS Intelligence Platform provides an environment in which the
business intelligence web applications, such as SAS Web Report Studio and the SAS
Information Delivery Portal, can execute. These products run in a web application server
and communicate with the user by sending data to and receiving data from the user's web
browser. The middle tier applications rely on servers on the SAS server tier to perform
SAS processing, including data query and analysis.
