With the rapid increases in the volume and variety of data available, the problem of providing effective support to facilitate good decision making has become more challenging. This unit of study will provide a comprehensive understanding the diverse types of decision and the decision making processes. It will introduce decision modelling and the design and implementation of application systems to support decision making in organisational contexts. It will include a range of business intelligence and analytics solutions based on online analytical processing (OLAP) models and technologies. The unit will also cover a number of modelling approaches (optimization, predictive, descriptive) and their integration in the context of enabling improved, data-driven decision making.
