Decode works the same way as your IF-THEN-ELSE or CASE statement in Oracle.

For example,
If you write a query like
SELECT firstname, salary, empid, DECODE(empid, 'IT_MGR', 1.15*salary, 'CLERK' , 1.20*salary, salary) REVISED_SAL FROM EMP;

then it will result into records having revised salary as per the division for IT_MGR and CLERK based on empid
