Summary

This book is widely known for its comprehensive treatment of decision support theory and how it is applied. Through four editions, this book has defined the course and set the standard for up-to-date coverage of the latest decision support theories and practices by managers and organizations. This fifth edition has been streamlined and updated throughout to reflect new computing technologies. Chapter 9 has been completely rewritten to focus on the Internet and Intranet. The reader will find expanded coverage of data warehousing, data mining, on-line analytical processes, and an entirely new chapter on intelligent agents (Ch. 19). Internet related topics and links to Internet exercises and cases appear throughout the new edition.
