היסטוריה של DSS

Classical Definitions of DSS

  • Interactive computer-based systems, which help decision makers utilize data and models to solve unstructured problems" - Gorry and Scott-Morton, 1971
  • Decision support systems couple the intellectual resources of individuals with the capabilities of the computer to improve the quality of decisions. It is a computer-based support system for management decision makers who deal with semistructured problems - Keen and Scott-Morton, 1978
types of dss
Types of DSS
  • Two major types:
    • Model-oriented DSS
    • Data-oriented DSS
  • Evolution of DSS into Business Intelligence
    • Use of DSS moved from specialist to managers, and then whomever, whenever, wherever
    • Enabling tools like OLAP, data warehousing, data mining, intelligent systems, delivered via Web technology have collectively led to the term “business intelligence” (BI) and “business analytics”

החל מאמצע שנות ה-2000 קיימים כלים חדשים לבינה עסקית בתפיסה הנקראת Business Intelligence 2.0 ‏(BI 2.0), המאפשרים ביצוע שאילתות על ידי עובדים על נתוני הארגון בזמן אמיתי. המושג BI 2.0 נטבע בהקבלה למושג Web 2.0משום שעיבודים מסוג זה הם בתפיסה של דפדפן בסביבת Web. כלי BI 2.0 מאפשרים דיווחים דינמיים יותר מהדיווחים הסטטיים שאפיינו כלים מדור קודם. בסיס חשוב לעיבודים מסוג זה הוא השימוש ב-SOA, שבא ביחד עם שימוש במוצרי תָ‏וְוכָ‏ה (Middleware) גמישים יותר ושימוש בתקנים להעברת מידע.

Service Oriented Architecture =SOA

DSS Description
  • DSS application

A DSS program built for a specific purpose (e.g., a scheduling system for a specific company)

  • Business intelligence (BI)

A conceptual framework for decision support. It combines architecture, databases (or data warehouses), analytical tools, and applications

business intelligence bi
Business Intelligence (BI)
  • BI is an evolution of decision support concepts over time.
    • Meaning of EIS/DSS…
      • Then: Executive Information System
      • Now: Everybody’s Information System (BI)
  • BI systems are enhanced with additional visualizations, alerts, and performance measurement capabilities.
  • The term BI emerged from industry apps.
the architecture of bi
The Architecture of BI
  • A BI system has four major components
    • a data warehouse, with its source data
    • business analytics, a collection of tools for manipulating, mining, and analyzing the data in the data warehouse;
    • business performance management (BPM) for monitoring and analyzing performance
    • a user interface (e.g., dashboard)
    • בשנים האחרונות תפס הנושא של בינה עסקית מקום מרכזי במערכות המידע. הגידול הרב במידע הנצבר במערכות ממוחשבות מחייב הצגה וריכוז של נתונים רלוונטיים על מנת שלמידע תהיה משמעות. אחד הביטויים לחשיבות התחום הוא רכישת חברות בולטות המתמחות בתחום על ידי חברות תוכנה גדולות

Optimization via Mathematical Programming
  • Mathematical Programming

A family of tools designed to help solve managerial problems in which the decision maker must allocate scarce resources among competing activities to optimize a measurable goal

  • Optimal solution: The best possible solution to a modeled problem
    • Linear programming (LP): A mathematical model for the optimal solution of resource allocation problems. All the relationships are linear
lp problem characteristics
LP Problem Characteristics

1. Limited quantity of economic resources

2. Resources are used in the production of products or services

3. Two or more ways (solutions, programs) to use the resources

4. Each activity (product or service) yields a return in terms of the goal

5. Allocation is usually restricted by constraints

    • BI has evolved so that many of the original differences between the two no longer exist (e.g., BI used to be focused on departmental rather than enterprise-wide projects).
    • BI is a crucial element of BPM.
  • BPM = BI + Planning (a unified solution)

bpm methodologies
BPM Methodologies
  • The meaning of “balance”
    • BSC is designed to overcome the limitations of systems that are financially focused
    • Nonfinancial objectives fall into one of three perspectives:
      • Customer
      • Internal business process
      • Learning and growth
bpm methodologies1
BPM Methodologies
  • In BSC, the term “balance” arises because the combined set of measures are supposed to encompass indicators that are:
    • Financial and nonfinancial
    • Leading and lagging
    • Internal and external
    • Quantitative and qualitative
    • Short term and long term
