Session Summary for Attendees:  Essbase Cloud includes a REST API so full-featured that (in the words of one nameless Oracle Product Manager) “if you don’t like our administration tools you can build your own.” Oracle APEX provides a rapid development environment with excellent REST API integration. Join Oracle ACE Director Tim German and Oracle ACE Jorge Rimblas as they attempt to build an Essbase administration utility (if not quite a full EAS replacement) in just 30 minutes using APEX.
