In today's software development organizations, methods and tools are em-ployed that frequently lack sufficient evidence regarding their suitability, limits, qualities, costs, and associated risks. Supporting managers in selecting software engineering technologies that, on the one hand, have shown evidence, and, on the other hand, fit their business goal-oriented requirements, is the ambitious aim of software engineering decision support. This paper presents ongoing research towards a summarization of empirical studies alongside the whole soft-ware development process. We introduce requirements for reporting empirical studies and for a repository structure that visualizes the relation between different techniques.
