research. Given this unique “generational” vantage point, we present the changes in and impact of DSS research as well as future considerations for decision support in the IS field. We argue that the DSS area has remained vital as technology has evolved and our understanding of decision-making processes has deepened. DSS work over the last several years has(More)
Relatively few studies in MIS research have examined systems to support value-based decision-making behavior. The increasing complexity of the decision environment necessitates more reliance on personal values by decision-makers, thus making it an important component to study when considering the design of systems to aid decision-making.

This research-in-progress paper explores the role participation in Open Source Software (OSS) projects has on the time between releases to begin to empirically test if “release early, release often” (Raymond, 1999) holds true in a practical sense. A model examining the effect that the number of project forum posts, as a proxy for participation, has on the(More)
The Theory of Universals in Values (TUV), a reliable and validated conceptualization of personal values used in psychology, is used to examine the effect of system feedback delivered by a Decision Support System (DSS) on personal values. The results indicate that value-based decision-making behavior can be influenced by DSS feedback to address value(More)
For the past three decades, Decision Support Systems (DSS) have looked to provide better decision-making support for difficult and complex semi-structured and unstructured decisions. However, debate continues over where DSS fits into the history of Management Information Systems (MIS), whether it is still the primary focus of MIS research, and in which(More)
As more and more wirelessly connected networks come online, security becomes a prominent concern. WiFi insecurity can result in detrimental effects to both individuals and organizations. To establish a greater awareness of the problems associated with wireless security and the extent to which the so-called digital divide effects such problems, we examine(More)
The effect of the personal values such as trust or a desire for privacy of users and developers of open source software (OSS) on the development and use of the software developed by OSS projects is a topic of growing interest in the Information Systems (IS) field. This topic has been investigated in proprietary IS development, but a limiting factor in many(More)
Information Systems (IS) have come to play a larger role in how organizations function, including consideration in strategic planning. Responding to competitive change or enacting a new strategy often requires modifying or enhancing an organization’s IS. In this paper, the authors develop a process model of evolutionary change to address the role that IS(More)
