Trends in I.S: Executive Support Systems

10 Mar

A valuable trend that I have yet to mention is Executive Support Systems (ESS). An ESS is software that allows its user to transform enterprise data into easily accessible information. In basic terms, it is a reporting tool that allows an organisation to turn its data into useful summarised reports. ESS is also known as Executive Information Systems (EIS).

An ESS is a beneficial tool used by senior management to gather, analyse and summarise key data. The reports generated are generally used by senior executives in billing, staffing and accounting departments. ESS presents the summary of information in flexible, easy to read graphs and charts. ESS enhances decision making.

ESS also has analysis capabilities and performance predictors, which firms can avail of. An ESS provides potential outcomes and statistics that are applied to decision making processes.

Thanks for taking the time to read my blog! I will be focusing on Transaction Processing Systems (TPS) in my next blog.
