We use the portal for letting endusers get access to stored processes over the web. You could also just use the stored process web application but then you would have to develop your own solution for navigation.
You could certainly develop your own proc summary code, a plug-in for eg to display the data and a web client to navigate the results on the web. But you also might not want to have to do all that work, so you might choose the sas olap solution.
It depends of course on what your requirements are.
