Administration Services is the cross-platform administration tool for Essbase. Administration Services consists of a Java middle-tier server, called Administration Server, and a Java client console, called Administration Services Console. The console is the graphical user interface that enables administrators to manage the Essbase environment. The console provides wizards, editors, and other tools to help administrators view, manage, and maintain Essbase Servers and Administration Servers. Administration Services replaces Application Manager.
The console simplifies Essbase administration tasks by providing a graphical representation of the Essbase environment. You can operate on Essbase objects quickly from a familiar tree view. You can perform multiple tasks simultaneously, run processes in the background, perform cross-server operations, and manage active user activity.
