SAS® Information Delivery Portal

The SAS Information Delivery Portal provides a Web-based user interface that enables users to navigate and access a wide variety of information. This information includes reports, charts, Web applications, documents, and links to internal or external Web pages.

For information about administering the Portal, see SAS Intelligence Platform: Web Application Administration Guide.

For any updates or hot fixes that are required before you can migrate, see the baseline requirements topic.

For properties that you can specify for the SAS Migration Utility during analysis and migration, see the chapter about product-specific SAS Migration Utility properties in SAS Intelligence Platform: Migration Guide
