Context-aware computing has been studied and applied for more than 20 years. Advances in software, mobility, analytics and the use of the internet to exchange information in real time will enable experience designers to link physical, electronic and mobile commerce for commercial gain and to enhance knowledge work productivity.


Based on Gartner’s observation of the degree of personalisation (and underlying use of analytics) now possible in today’s mobile and social ecosystems and platforms, practices of optimising individual experiences and interaction channels will become mainstream during the next two to three years.


Social media will provide key ingredients so that context providers and enterprises can create such experiences by inferring intent. They will need a deep understanding of the groups to which end users belong. They will also need to adjust to a user’s persona, as well as automatically adjust experiences in the physical and digital worlds by adapting to environments in real time.
