The unit reviews how managers use computerised decision support systems for accessing important information, the principles of decision making, modelling and how Business Intelligence tools are used by enterprises to support decision making. The unit develops an understanding of what is unique about Information Systems that provide support for decision makers and how various information systems (DSS, Knowledge Based Systems, Group Support Systems, Business Intelligence) are integrated at the enterprise level to support decision making. Students complete practical work using a financial modelling language, analyse the information needs of decision makers, evaluate and develop tools in the implementation of what we call, all these technologies and systems collectively, Management Support Systems (MSS).
