Moreover, the model management module helps the activities of knowledge workers by means of high-level languages for the development of ad hoc models. 9, created to carry out specific analysis tasks. For example, a large-scale optimization model formulated to develop the annual logistic plan of a manufacturing company falls in this category. Interactions. In most applications, knowledge workers use a DSS interactively to carry out their analyses. The module responsible for these interactions is expected to receive input data from users in the easiest and most intuitive way, usually through the graphic interface of a web browser, and then to return the extracted information and the knowledge generated by the system in an appropriate graphical form.

For example, even if disguised under apparently inoffensive names such as ‘data enrichment’, private information on individuals and households does circulate, but that does not mean that it is ethical for decision makers and enterprises to use it. Respect for the right to privacy is not the only ethical issue concerning the use of business intelligence systems. There has been much discussion in recent years of the social responsibilities of enterprises, leading to the introduction of the new concept of stakeholders.

Further, a DSS is intended for 38 BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE decision-making processes that are strategic, tactical and operational in scope. Moreover, decision makers should have the opportunity to integrate in a DSS their preferences and competencies, adapting it to their needs rather than passively accepting what comes out of it. In this way, a DSS may progressively take the role of a key component in the problem-solving methodology adopted by decision makers, enabling a proactive and perceptive decision-making style, instead of a reactive and by-exception attitude, in order to anticipate any rapidly evolving dynamic phenomenon.
