I am studying DSS as part of my coursework at secondary school and found your Web site very useful. However, I am currently searching for a basic example of a DSS that I could illustrate in my project and wondered if you could help me.


Sid Adelman’s Answer: Go to the back issues of DM Review (www.DMReview.com). Each issue usually has a case study of an organization’s implementation of a data warehouse. You’ll find these articles on this same web site. Doug Hackney’s Answer: Check out the major BI vendor Web sites. You can do a screen capture of the online tool samples: Cognos, Brio, Business Objects, Microsoft, Oracle and Informatica.

Scott Howard’s Answer: I think that the previous question about MIS vs. OLAP illustrates both simple and complex DSS. Look to those answer from the experts for guidance.
