Use the Internet to identify three GSS software solutions that can be used to facilitate group decision making. As a group, come to a decision on which of the three software solutions is the best for use by small teams like yours. Document your decision and the process you followed to reach a decision.

Program Plan Intro

Information system:

  • An information system is a system which provides the necessary information to an organization to achieve the goals.
  • It monitors the transactions details, provides the required information to decision makers, and provides necessary documents to customers.
  • The main components in the information system are people, data, procedures, hardware, as well as software.
  • The main function of information system is to accept and process the input data and then stores the retrieved information and distributes it across the organization.
Program Explanation

Three GSS software solutions:

  • The three GSS software solutions that could be used for facilitating group decision making is shown below:
    • Group decision support system (GDSS):
      • It denotes a collaborating computer based system.
      • It simplifies a number of decision-makers for finding solutions to problems.
      • The input is been taken from many users interacting concurrently to arrive decision as a group.
      •  Each participant is given with a computer; the computers are been connected to each other.
      • The phases of GDSS are show below:
        • Idea generation.
        • Discussion.
        • Voting.
        • Vote counting.
    • GroupWare:
      • It is designed for supporting more than one person employed on a shared task.
      • It denotes multiuser software that would allow users to access same data.
      • It offers a mechanism that would help users coordinate as well as keep track of on-going projects.
      • It would help people work together through collaboration as well as coordination.
    • Paramount Decisions:
      • It denotes an organized approach for making as well as communicating complex decisions...
