Handbook on Decision Support Systems 1: Basic Themes (International Handbooks on Information Systems)

Buy
Decision support systems comprise a core subject area of the information systems (IS) discipline, being one of several major expansions that have occurred in the IS field. The decision support system (DSS) area, as a subject of research and practice, continues to grow along ever-widening horizons – often blending with other major IS expansions such as organizational computing, electronic commerce/ business, and pervasive computing. Diverse exemplars of DSS advances are found in this Handbook on Decision Support Systems. They range from basic advances that have shaped the DSS realm over the years to emergent advances that are shaping tomorrow’s DSS conceptions and impacts.

The two-volume Handbook on Decision Support Systems serves as an extensive and fundamental reference for anyone interested in the IS field in general, or its DSS arena in particular. Its peer-reviewed chapters are written by an international array of over 130 DSS researchers and practitioners spanning six continents. They share their thoughts and experiences about the historical milestones, current developments, and future trends of technologies and techniques for helping people faced with the often difficult task of making decisions. The seventy-one chapters address an array of issues and approach decision support from a wide variety of perspectives. These range from classic foundations to cutting-edge thought. They approach DSS topics from both informative and provocative standpoints. They cover theoretical and practical angles, human and technological dimensions, operational and strategic viewpoints. The chapters include first-hand experiences, best practices, thoughtful recommendations, stimulating insights, conceptual tools, and philosophical discussion.

The Handbook on Decision Support Systems serves as a “must-read/first-read” reference point for any theoretical or practical project related to DSS investigation or study. It contains essential material of long-term benefit for the library of every DSS practitioner, researcher, and educator. The content is designed to be of interest to, and at a level appropriate for, those not yet exposed to the DSS realm of IS – while at the same time containing novel, insightful perspectives for DSS experts. The authors have taken special care to make sure readers are supplied with pointers to relevant reference materials in case they want to pursue their exploration of selected DSS topics of interest in more depth.
