The spectacular increase in the amount of information circulated by organizations has a great impact on higher education level decision making environments, especially at the strategic level. Decision making factors in organisations need to possess adequate instruments to access such huge amounts of data in order to obtain the information necessary for the best decision. Operational databases offer only information having a low level of aggregation concerning relatively short periods of time. The solution of integrating history data in data warehouses grouped according to domain provides a high performance background in the case of strategic decision making processes, while Business Intelligence tools offer manifold accessing possibilities, as well as the possibility to transfer key information into directly usable formats.
