Abstract

During last forty years, the terminology used for different kinds of information systems has changed, like from Management Information Systems to Decision Support Systems and Executive Information Systems or like from the last ones to Business Intelligence Systems. But much more has happened than just this change of terms, partly because the technology has significantly evolved from internally developed graphical user interfaces to packaged applications that provide users with easy access to data for analysis.

The main purpose of the paper is to provide theoretical explanations concerning some of these terms in order to get rid of most of the potential confusions related to the corresponding research field.

Keywords: Decision Support Systems (DSS), Executive Information Systems (EIS), Business Intelligence (BI), Data Warehouses

JEL Classification: D8
