Is That an Essbase Administrator App in Your Pocket?

In this session learn what a no-cost Oracle product called Oracle APEX is all about and how to use it to integrate common information and tasks from your Essbase systems into a secure application that can be used everywhere from your PC to your tablet to your favorite mobile device. We will explore what can be done with APEX and how to create a simple application that communicates with your Essbase Cloud or Independent Deployment through Essbase's vast library of REST API calls and can be expanded into a full-featured command console.

Imagine having at your fingertips and possibly on your pocket mobile device, a concise summary of all of your tasks, all the hard-to-find information you need to monitor and manage your Essbase systems – from application logs and statistics, working with substitution variables, submitting, approving, or rejecting scenarios, to executing jobs and getting job statistics, getting database storage, runtime, and general statistics, get Application statistics, scan Application Logs for errors – all from a single control console.

Come to this session and see how easy that really is to do with Oracle APEX.
