Summary of using IS for decision making

5 Mar

Well this unfortunately is my last ever post , cue the sad music. So just to make your life a bit easier by summarising the topic and giving some helpful links and videos to help you understand the topic more.

In this first post I gave a brief introduction into the whole decision making issue , what it is , the different levels , and what systems you can use to aid decision-making.

The next post dealt with the various decision making levels of an organization , which include the owners ,the managers and the employees.

After that I discussed the different types of IS used in decision making like MIS, DSS, ESS and GDSS.

In a twist in events I looked at the world of data visualization which is another form of IS and makes the information clearer to the decision maker.

And in the final post I discussed the phenomena of Big Data which deals with how company’s can manage their data intake to help operate effectively, make decisions, reduce risks, and serve customers.

So here’s some useful links to sites related to this topic. – this is really helpful website in understanding DSS and other decision aiding IS. – these are just some summary slides that cover the whole topic – very useful for quick and simple definitions of IS or any other IS terms – also these slides are very helpful with explaining the topic
