Syllabus

In this unit, students learn how decision making in organisations can be supported by information systems such as decision support systems (DSS) and business intelligence systems (BIS) that draw their data from internal and external sources (databases, warehouses and environment scanning). Business intelligence technologies and visualisation tools comprising business analytics, data mining, text mining, neural networks, and business performance management are examined regarding their application in organisations. Each student is expected to design and construct a functional DSS/BIS prototype suitable for the information systems industry or to research a business intelligence topic and write it up in an academic essay.

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Demonstrate understanding of how computer-based information systems such as decision support systems (DSS) and business intelligence systems (BIS) can support managerial decision making in the contemporary business world;

2. Recognise and apply the tools, technologies and models available to assist in managerial decision making according to organisational requirements and resources; and

3. Acquire a working knowledge of how BIS/DSS systems are designed and constructed and how such systems are integrated into the organisational environment.
