ABSTRACT: Organizational decision support systems (ODSS) are a new type of decision support system (DSS) focusing on the organization rather than the individual or the group. In this paper, various conceptions of ODSS are reviewed, as are several architectures suggested for their construction. The paper ends with a discussion of the information technology on which ODSS can be based.
