Administration Services is the cross-platform administration tool for Essbase. Administration Services consists of a Java middle-tier server, called Essbase Administration Server, and a Java client console, called Administration Services Console.

Administration Services Console is the graphical user interface (GUI) that enables administrators to manage the Essbase environment from one navigation tree, called Enterprise View. The console provides wizards, editors, and other tools to help administrators view, manage, and maintain a unique set of Essbase Servers. The console includes a data preview grid that enables you to preview data without having to switch from the console to another program.
