Towards a Cloud-Based Group Decision Support System


Decision Support Systems have constantly benefited from the technological advances in Computer Science. Cloud Computing is a technology that could become useful for the Decision Support Systems, too. Moreover, Decision Support Systems may support the “global brain” programming paradigm. This paper presents iDS, a system designed to become a collaborative and cloud-based Group Decision Support System. This Decision Support System will be made available as a Business as a Service model. After presenting the architecture of the developed iDS, the main design directions for integrating it into the cloud are described. The goal is to obtain a platform that supports collective intelligence, in terms of human-computer networking.
