    Right Experience, Right Results
    Improving Profits, Margin and Engagement with Mobile and Big Data

    In the past, the technologies to deliver personalized and contextual services were either unavailable or unaffordable. Personalization was also a concept that was reserved solely for the consumer market. The next wave of computing, based on mobile, big data and analytics, provides the foundation for businesses to create adaptive, personalized applications and services that get smarter over time.

    Today’s consumer and enterprise products and services must adapt to support the burgeoning demand for always connected, accurate and real-time information. These smarter services, which Lopez Research defines as Right-time Experiences, will deliver the right information or service at the point of need to a company's customers and to its employees. Right-time experiences will be achieved by using big data and analytics to turn context from mobile, social and other sources into insight that delivers better information and richer experiences.
