With the growing trend of global competitiveness and business complexity, the need arises for integrating BDTs in the design of ODSS. BDTs enable ODSS to deal with data of volume, variety, and velocity beyond the capability of traditional databases and data-warehouses in ODSS. The basic modules of updated ODSS with BDT are presented as a conceptual design, which provides a general foundation for the detailed design and implementation of an application. The validation of the proposed conceptual design is conducted on a test-case based upon the BSC perspectives as well as requirements common for ODSS scenarios. The results show that each requirement of the system is supported by a set of integrated modules in a balanced way. The modules of the highest contribution in the conceptual design are the modules most related to BDT. The initial stages of the implementation of the system are given.
