  1. Executive Information Systems -- Session 1“Turning Data into Knowledge” Henry Weigel Energy Information Administration February 2000

  2. Overview • Session 1: Fundamentals of an EIS, types and structure, development approaches, tools, vendors, examples, Oil & Gas Demo • Session 2: The use of presentation graphics, making sense of a sea of data, the use of Excel, Powerpoint, HTML, Word • Session 3: Internet/Intranet and Active Server Pages • Session 4: MS Access (World & MER MDBs)

  3. A tool for the senior manager Direct on-line access to relevant information Timely and accurate For individuals with limited time, limited keyboarding skills, and little direct experience with computers An EIS is easy to navigate Definition of an EIS

  4. Characteristics of an EIS • Tailored to executive’s information needs • Reports • Analysis and graphics • “Drill-down” process • Easy to use

  7. Structure of an EIS • Presentation Graphics • Tutorials • Web Pages • Internet Portals • Intranet • Database Queries and Reporting

  8. Development Approaches • Classical System Development • System Requirements • Functional Description • System Specifications • Data Requirements • User Interfaces • Rapid Prototyping • User involvement • Low resources (if no good start over)

  9. Tools • Database Interfaces • Queries • Forms • Modules (Code) • Hypertext Interfaces • Active Server Pages (MS ASP) • Off-the shelf Software • Custom Programming

  10. Vendors • ..\DOCs\EIS Notes 3 Vendors.doc
