Becoming more competitive and more effective in the current scenes of Business and Public
Administration, the organizations must be able to approach easily and quickly to the information on
the customers and the external conditions of market. In other words it means to head at the
improvement of the Decision Support Systems. Decision Support System is concerned with
developing systems aimed at helping decision makers solve problems and make decisions.
In this paper, we refer to a decision support system based on flexible architecture able to discover
the knowledge in a distributed and heterogeneous multi-organization environment. The system
architecture has been designed according to the Service Oriented Architecture and Model View
Controller design pattern. Moreover it is based on a mining engine whose purpose is to generate
and to use suitable e-services for knowledge by driving the user through various stages of the
Knowledge Discovery process. An Intrusion Detection application is also described.
