distributed with Dicodess contains the complete text of the first three
chapters of the book Building
Model-Driven Decision Support Systems
with Dicodess, published by vdf
publishing in Zurich, Switzerland.
These three chapters cover in
about 50 pages all the topics you need to get started with
Dicodess, from the installation process to the use of an example DSS in
a distributed environnement.
However, Dicodess is much more
than that! The book contains nine other chapters and two appendices
covering all the details of the software framework. It teaches you how
to use Dicodess as a DSS generator to build your own model-based,
distributed DSS without writing a single line of program code. It
even teaches advanced programmers how to extend the Dicodess
platform to add new functionalities to it. You can do it!
Dicodess is open source!
If you want to get past the
basics of Dicodess, whether you are a DSS teacher, a student, a model
expert, or a DSS designer, buy the book and learn how to
master this exciting platform -- besides, this is the best way to
support our open source efforts!
