When designing a website or web app, it’s essential to consider the screen of the person who is going to be using it – and nowadays that means it’s more likely to be a mobile screen. In 2014, 1.8 billion phones, 256 million tablets and 276 million PCs were shipped, meaning more phones were shipped in three months than there were PCs shipped all year. But mobile devices and PC’s don’t exist in their own worlds; users are increasingly switching between devices throughout the course of completing a task. A Google study on The New Multi-Screen World found that “90% [of users] use multiple screens sequentially to accomplish a task over time.”
The new reality is that your website or web app needs to be designed to look good on any device, no matter the screen size.

Standardizing personal experience sounds impersonal, doesn't it? Yet, that's what we're talking about here and there are plenty of software folks believing it's the right time for such an effort. When companies manage or utilize a number of systems involved with customer experience management, there is a need for those systems to transfer data from one system to the next. It is a huge challenge for CIOs, trying to streamline heterogeneous technologies and the data and transactions flowing from each solutions from their information system, while at the same time avoiding losing control over the collected data.
Working together, Jahia and Enonic have launched a new project at the OASIS international consortium to develop a standard that will enable the creation, management and delivery of personalized web and digital experiences. This initiative lead to the creation of the OASIS Context Server (CXS) Technical Committee (TC). Think of this effort similar to what brought us Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) but instead of a standard for content, we're talking about a standard for personalized data.
