How does a dss typically differ from an eis?
An EIS requires data from external sources to support unstructured decisions, whereas a DSS typically uses internal sources to support semi-structured decisions.
EIS differ from a DSS in that;
-It supports top management
-It uses a lot more external data and makes long term strategic decisions which are not often repeated
-Uses a lot more subjective data.
DSS (decision support system) , it models information using OLAP, which supports managers and business professionals during decision making process at managerial level. EIS is a specialized DS that supports senior level executives and unstructured, long term, non routine decisions requiring judgement, evaluation and insight.

1: most common garden plants prefer loam — soils with a balance of different-sized mineral particles (approximately 40% sand, 40% silt, and 20% clay) with ample organic matter and pore space. however, some plants grow better in sandy soils, while others are well-adapted to clay soils.
2: available water capacity is the maximum amount of plant available water a soil can provide. it is an indicator of a soil's ability to retain water and make it sufficiently available for plant use. available water capacity is the water held in soil between its field capacity and permanent wilting point.
3: it is the same for all living things (plants and animals). it also includes very tiny organisms that our eyes cannot see. they are known as microorganisms, and include viruses, bacteria and fungi.
