Abstract
Decision support in software engineering is an emerging field. The need to select the best method, technique or tool in a given business context is becoming more and more important in an increasingly competitive world where time-to-market, budget constraints, and the achievement of functionality and quality goals are becoming crucial for achieving a company's business goals. This paper presents ongoing research towards the development of a decision support system that aims at improving software engineering technology selection by software managers. To evaluate if it is worthwhile to invest into a user modeling approach for that specific system, we conducted a pilot study amongst research managers regarding their presentation preferences. Our main finding is, that the target user group is in doubt whether they would benefit from a user modeling approach. Moreover, we were not able to demonstrate significant differences in the information need for different roles.
