A specific decision support vision and a well-defined architecture for a new application provides a direction for making design decisions. As technologies evolve computing and decision support architectures change and evolve, but new patterns are not common (cf., Power, 2007). Service oriented and message-based implementations of decision support systems (cf., Natis, 2003) are still not common. The REST/AJAX architectural style is an evolving set of standards for web-based and now smart phone applications. The four traditional DSS architectures, bridge, network, sandwich and tower identified by Sprague and Carlson (1982) continue to provide high-level design direction, but more architectural detail is desirable. REST is an architectural style. A RESTful DSS uses a REST architecture.
