Essbase Administration Services (EAS) in 30 Seconds or Less

EAS 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 a single navigation tree, called Enterprise View (shown below). The console provides wizards, editors, and other tools to help administrators view, manage, and maintain a unique set of Essbase Servers. The console also includes a data preview grid that enables you to preview data without having to switch from the console to another program.
