Information Technology for Decision Making

 

 

Course Description:

This course is about the manager‘s responsibilities for problem solving and decision making, and those areas in which information technology can be used to gain the insight needed to support selection of decision alternatives. Students learn about the role of data, information, and knowledge in managerial problem solving and decision making.  Transactional processing and database management systems (DBMS) are used to store, manage, and retrieve data in organizations.  Decision support system (DSS) tools and technologies (such as natural language programming and influence diagramming) are used to organize data into information for decision analytics.  Expert systems (ES) are used to synthesize information into knowledge for knowledge management.  Students are required to use DBMS, DSS and ES software packages in a hands-on environment.
