Abstract

In this paper we have analyzed scientific data regarding Decision Support Systems and Business Intelligence available on an online platform, namely Web of Science, in the Core Collection database. Starting from individual blocks consisting in concatenations of abstracts, titles and keywords, we extracted related concepts and corresponding importance scores using IBM Watson and a custom API. The results highlight the common points of the two topics being analyzed. They also reveal a much longer history of Business Intelligence, whose beginnings are usually placed almost 15 years later (e.g. Howard Dresner, 1989). Next we have plans to find the publication frequency considering both sets of related concepts and using the same Web of Science Core Collection database, and further perform analyzes of the resulting multiple time series using Data Mining tools.

Keywords: Decision Support Systems (DSS), Business Intelligence (BI), Web of Science (WOS) Core Collection database, Natural Language Processing (NLP), SQL, Data Mining
