Personalization and the DNI Framework
  • Digital technology makes it possible
  • Encyclopedic storage of information provides a
    rich base of material
  • The network makes it available
  • Internet connections can tap into databases and
    data archives, get news feeds, and provide
    time-sensitive information or accumulate
    information for later use
  • Individuals make it valuable
  • Personalization provides value by focusing on
    specific individual needs

  • Democracy of goods refers to open and low-cost
    access to products and services

    easy for a consumer to evaluate
  • Example well-known branded products such as
    gasoline from Texaco
  • EXPERIENCE GOODS tend to be difficult to
    understand and evaluate. They are too complex to
    judge easily. They may be highly subjective, with
    personal taste being the most important
    determinant of usefulness

Personalization Benefits
The Personalization Balance
  • Providing Useful Information
  • A key challenge is to determine the type and
    scope of information consumers will value and use
  • Customers judge information programs by their
    efficiency and the ratio of usage costs with
    usage benefits
  • Information programs that are linked to
    customers personal targets and objectives are
    often successful

Personalization Benefits
The Personalization Balance
  • Personalization Backlash
  • A natural result of personalization is treating
    customers differently

    want to hear using a pop-up menu

    registration information and show the users name
    at the top of the page
  • Essential requirement is modularization
    division of a product into components

Types of Customization

    questions or fill in extensive questionnaires

    observable online triggers
  • A trigger is a user action that a model can use
    to decide what personalized information to send

Personalization Systems
Case-Based System
  • CASE (computer-assisted self-explication)
  • The system queries users about preferences ?
    matches user with the right product / service

    number of well-understood attributes and features
  • Example Personalogic (Chapter 7
  • Require user cooperation to get relevant user data

Personalization Systems
