  1. Life Cycle Management Utility(LCM) 
  2. Command Line Utility

•  To use the Essbase LCM utility and Command line interface, Java JDK 8 should be installed and the JAVA_HOME path should be set.•  On-Premises Essbase applications should be converted to Unicode mode (UTF-8 encoding) before migrating into OAC Essbase environment.
•  Right Click on MT and click on Edit Properties then go to General Tab and Enable Unicode Mode
