The concept of Decision Support System (DSS), which was first coined by Gorry and Scott Morton (1971), was proposed in an attempt to focus the attention of IS researchers and practitioners more closely on the decision-making processes of managers. It sought to acknowledge the importance of decision-making as the key activity that managers must perform in organizations (Huber, 1982).
