The SAS Workflow Services deliver capabilities to meet the workflow requirements gathered from various SAS Solution and product teams.SAS Solutions will be built on top of the SAS Process Platform which is delivered as part of the Mid-Tier Platform within the SAS Shared Services components.SAS Solutions can request from the SAS Process Platform services such as (examples only) Open Process Designer (separate tool currently), Launch new process instance, Check Process Status, etc…The SAS Process Platform services these requests and provides a Process Modeling environment, process status, lists of process tasks, and events related to processes such as “process_complete”, “process_started”, “process_suspended”, among others.This provides a set of common business process services that are consistent and on which different solutions can be built. This eliminates the need for Solutions to develop these capabilities each time thereby freeing their solution teams to deliver capabilities specific to their domains to meet their customers’ requirements.SAS WorkflowBI Web ServicesSAS ServersServer TierMetadataWorkspaceThird-Party RDBMSStored ProcessTableOLAP Cube
