The integration of analytic models into information systems provides the basis for developing intelligent decision support systems and for enabling business intelligence management. DESIGNING AND EVALUATING E-MANAGEMENT DECISION TOOLS presents the most relevant concepts for designing intelligent decision tools in an Internet-based multimedia environment and assessing the tools using concepts of statistical design of experiments.
The following issues are covered in the book: decision modeling paradigms (Chapter 1), visual interactive decision modeling (Chapter 2), online preference elicitation (Chapter 3), collaborative decision making (Chapter 4), negotiation and conflict resolution (Chapter 5), marketing decision optimization (Chapter 6), and guidelines for designing and evaluating decision support tools.
This book is designed for the following uses: 1) for researchers and engineers, who are seeking recent advances and who are developing e-management systems; 2) for practitioners and managers, who seek insights about ICT potential and using ICT for business intelligence management; and 3) for students, who seek theoretical and practical concepts of building and evaluating prototype decision tools.
