Abstract

As work is becoming more flexible and mobile this implies that required information is accessible from everywhere at anytime. In addition, by thinking of our daily information overload, there is strong desire for more personalized information in order to perform our business transactions as easy as possible. To achieve these goals we introduce ubiquitous business as the vision of staying in touch with everyone and everything from wherever you are it is the vision of a ubiquitous information access. Based on the latest trends in technology development we have identified four building blocks of ubiquitous business: networked infrastructure, mobility, intelligent environments, and natural interfaces.
