What-If analysis
Attempt to check the impact of a change in the assumptions (inputdata) on theproposed solution e.g. What will happen to the market share if theadvertising budget increases by 5 % or 10%?

 These are primarily stand alone systems isolated from majororganizational information systems (finance, manufacturing, HR, etc). They are developed by end users and are not reliant on centralinformation systems control. These systems combine• Use of a strong model, and• Good user interface to maximize model utility They are not usually data intensive, hat is very large data bases areusually not need for model-driven DSS. They use data and parameters usually provided by decision makers toaid in analyzing a situation.
10.3.2 Data Driven DSS
As opposed to model driven DSS, these systems use large pools of data found in major organizational systems. They help to extractinformation from the large quantities of data stored. These systemsrely on Data Warehouses created from Transaction Processingsystems.• They use following techniques for data analysis• Online analytical processing, and• Data mining
