The Exchange Management Console (EMC) is a graphical user interface (GUI)  that allows administrators to manage their Exchange organizations. Formerly known as the Exchange System Manager, the Exchange Management Console was announced as part of Exchange Server 2007. 

In the Exchange 2010 Management Console, an adminstrator can view the organization’s licenses in addition to being able to view servers and perform administrative tasks.
