Summary

Firms want to deliver the right experience to the right user at the right time and on the right device — a tricky proposition in this age of device proliferation. The splinternet — and the devices that comprise it — presents challenges for engaging customers, but it also provides new opportunities to better understand customers' context. User profiles combined with historical data and real-time feedback can help firms deliver increasingly relevant, tailored experiences that meet specific user needs. We call this contextualization.
