A Decision Support System (DSS) is a class of information
systems (including but not limited to computerized systems)
that support business and organizational decision-making
activities. A properly designed DSS is an interactive

documents, personal knowledge, or business models to
identify and solve problems and make decisions.

problems solving in an organization)

Increases organizational control
Generates new evidence in support of a decision
Creates a competitive advantage over competition

decision maker
