Additional Products in Enterprise BI Server

[ Edited ]

Question: should the upgrade from BI Server to EBI Server be somehow reflected in additional products in the setinit.sas file?

Or is it just additional webapps on the middleware layer?

 

Additional question: should the Information Delivery Portal appear in the list of installable software, or is it just part of the Web Infrastructure?

From what I understand SAS BI / Enterprise server is now a legacy bundling of SAS products. A more recent bundling that SAS is promoting is SAS Office Analytics:

We as SAS specialists might call it legacy, but there are still a lot of customers using it, and it's still supported.
And by looking at the product list, Office Analytics has a smaller scope than EBIS and perhaps a slightly different target audience (staticians/analysis personnel at small to medium sized sites). You need at least to add VA to start comparing the two.

Thank you all, everything's cleared up now, and after a 2 1/2 hour installation/configuration session yesterday we have the IDP up and running.
