If you want to use .NET InfoView, and if you do not want to use a Java application server to host your CMC, then you can use WACS to host the Central Management Console (CMC). Java goes for Tomcat.

Refer this link: https://help.sap.com/doc/businessobject_product_guides_boebi31_en_wacs_whitepaper_en_pdf/3.1/en-US/wacs_whitepaper_en.pdf

this is really bad wording (referring to the BI document) because WACS is a java application server and it is much more limited than tomcat

WACS is a application server bundled with SAP BO like tomcat but you cannot deploy separately any other application to it.

It hosts different services like restful web service any others as well.

Do you mean that CMC and BI launch pad are pre-deployed on WACS and we do not have the option to deploy any other application of our choice?? @Tanveer Mujawar

yes. BI Launchpad is not part of WACS.

WACS is a black box webapp server based on apache tomcat, which you cannot control.
Tomcat is a wildly available, open source webapp server which is fully controllable by the user.

What kind of control ? Please explain a little more

0

any control besides basic.

you cannot deploy/undeploy apps from/to it.
you cannot cluster it.

you can't install it on separate server without deploying actual SIA node to it.

WACS will also be used to connect to tools like Lumira.
