Nowadays many Decision Support Applications tend to combine the multi-criteria decision analysis of historical data with new reporting facilities as alerts and some corresponding to key performance indicators that describe so well a new field and approach called Business Intelligence. Moreover GIS and DSS applications altogether become more relevant to most business than as distinctive parts. This paper justifies with many arguments the association between such approaches and technologies. To support that we have decided to give some practical examples of geographical queries with efficient results lunched in classical applications based on the interaction with a dedicated GIS system.
