A SERVICE-ORIENTED APPROACH TO EFFICIENT DECISION SUPPORT

Goran Mihelcic, Bo Hu, Stefan Pickl

Abstract

Historically grown IT-landscapes in modern business, often referred to as ‘legacy’ systems or ‘accidental architectures’, can have a strong impact on the efficiency of decision support processes. Caused by a high level of separation of essential software applications, crucial information needed may often be difficult and time consuming to retrieve. The authors show one approach of how distributed business-critical software applications can be integrated using the service oriented architecture paradigm. The implementation of webservices can increase the flexibility and integrity of decision support processes. The authors demonstrate their approach in the context of a participatory system dynamics modelling application.
