1.1Background of the Study
Today, many universities are experiencing technological advancement and change in the mode of in which they carry out their activities. With this advancement, it is becoming essential to find an easier and more effective system to help them improve its academic activities Clavereau, M. (2011). Information management system can be applied to any system that facilitates storage, management and retrieval of data and information required for some particular application within a computer system Qiang, U. (2010).
Decision Support System (DSS) is a computer-based information system that supports business or organizational decision-making activities. DSSs serve the management, operations, and planning levels of an organization and help to make decisions, which may be rapidly changing and not easily specified in advance. DSS include knowledge-based systems. A properly designed DSS is an interactive software-based system intended to help decision makers compile useful information from a combination of raw data, documents, personal knowledge, or business models to identify and solve problems and make decisions such as students database management within institutions according to Uma, V.D, (2009).
The role of information management system in decision making cannot be over emphasized. Effective decision making demands accurate, timely and relevant information, Qiang, U. (2010).
One of the major challenges encountered by schools in several countries, mainly within the academic sphere, is to handle the difficulties of student’s information during the learning process, which in many cases might result in the lack of motivation and adoption of technological tools to aid data processing and management of student’s record Qiang, U. (2010).
In today’s technological era, intelligent decision support has become a need for system’s framework. As technology evolved, new computerized decision support application were developed and studied. This emergency of the technologies has also made the Kaduna state university to seek for more easy way to manage student’s information through the use of decision supports system.
The more complex an organization’s structure is, the greater the need for co-ordination within and between sections and departments. However, central to the needed co ordination is the use of decision support information system. This view is buttressed by Murdick and Ross, (2016), which he stated that Information is absolutely essential to the survival of an organization especially the educational sector which the kaduna state university of one of such. As the university grow, the pressure of scale, complexity and an increased rate of change make adequate information processing capacity inevitable, if effective control, consequent upon student’s activities is to be achieved, a decision support system could be of great importance to the university.
1.2 Statement of the Problem
Information resource is one of the major issues and indices of university that is planning towards good decision making. Where the relevant information required for planning are not available at the appropriate time, there is bound to be poor planning, inappropriate decision making, poor priority of needs, defective scheduling of activities. Hence, the university system will not be efficient and effective in its operation. Poor management information systems have been
