5 Decision Support System Decision support system (DSS) pool models and data in an effort to solve problems with broad user involvement. The models are representations of reality that the DSS uses to come to a conclusion. Users can use the data and models to do sensitivity analysis, what-if analysis, and goal-seeking analysis (Rainer & Cegielski, 2010). By doing these analysis managers can manipulate the data to predict future sales and profits and make the necessary adjustments when needed. Electronic Commerce System Electronic Commerce System (ECS) enable organizations to conduct transactions, called business-to-business (B2B) electronic commerce, and customers to conduct transactions with businesses, called business-to-consumer (B2C) electronic commerce (Rainer & Cegielski, 2010). Electronic transaction systems allow customers to pay via a debit or credit card instead of writing out a check or paying with cash. The number of customers with cards is growing fast, without the use of electronic transaction systems the business would not be competitive in this market. ECS is even more crucial when dealing with B2B transactions, often times there is no face-to-face interaction with suppliers or business partners.
