Timely access to up-to-date business information. Consolidated information can be delivered throughout the entire organization at any time and from any location in the world, even while users are traveling. Your decision makers get the information they need sooner, improving their ability to manage the business.
Simplified distribution of reports and applications across the enterprise. In addition to the client-side benefits of Web-based delivery, only SAS/IntrNet offers server-side flexibility and scalability through load-balancing capabilities, as well as support for multiple platforms.
No need for expensive workforce retraining. Applications can be Web-enabled very quickly with a combination of SAS programming skills, a little HTML knowledge and the power of the SAS server. Return on investment can therefore be realized almost immediately without expensive workforce retraining.
Extend your SAS programs to any Web client. The Application Dispatcher enables the use of Web browsers to run any SAS program that can be executed in batch mode on a SAS server.
SQL processing from your Web pages. SAS/IntrNetís htmSQL feature lets users enter information into an HTML form, which is then submitted to a script designed to process SQL type queries that are embedded in HTML. SAS htmSQL dynamically processes the SQL in response to user requests, ensuring that the most current SAS data is displayed in your browser or device on reload.
End-to-end security supported. For security between the Web browser and the Web server, any industry standard and/or firewalls can be used. For security between the Web server and the SAS server, encryption and/or firewalls are supported.
Scalability for optimal resource usage. Intelligent load balancing routes client requests to idle servers, ensuring the fastest response times. Servers can be distributed over multiple systems, and they can be started automatically during periods of peak load and stopped during periods of inactivity. Also, SAS/IntrNet spans most operating systems from Windows to UNIX to mainframes.
Use your favorite HTML editor. SAS Design-Time Controls are a way to use WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) HTML editors to provide a point-and-click interface for adding SAS content to your Web pages without writing a single line of code. The controls present a user-friendly, intuitive interface that insulates you from much of the complexity that accompanies sophisticated Web content.
