Re: Silverlight Demo
If you expose SAS on the web, you have 2 choices: IntrNet or Integration
Technologies. IntrNet is a a lot cheaper that IntTech. They each have
advantages. IntrNet is super fast since it has little overhead. IntTech is
where SAS is heading and has a lot of robust technologies such as web
services support (although Don and I have shown how to do web services using
IntrNet as well).
Yes, you can bypass the above 2 using alternatives (I have done it in a
lab). However, you will violate licensing if you do. I said "in a lab" for a
If less expensive is the goal, license IntrNet and then either use it or
not. Frankly, I would use it since it does what it does very efficiently.
If you don't have to expose SAS processing, consider pushing your data into
a mid-tier (SQL Server Express, for example) and then using it as a driving
engine for data. I have done that with a few clients and it works for a more

While the demo you see is merely 1 dimensional, it can be n-dimensional.
Classify reports by disease/condition then zoom in to the study, the

Is SAS/IntrNet expensive to licence? The thing that puts me off SAS is
the cost of it for a multi-user environment that flies in the face of
cheaper or even free alternatives. It's like SAS has signed its own
death warrant. I get the impression that people should now be looking
into alternatives for SAS like R and as for the front end stuff then
Silverlight looks a good choice.
