Abstract: Ubiquitous computing is one of the most disruptive and emerging technology of present times with applications in many areas like manufacturing, healthcare, real estate etc. Design of standards and framework for these applications is an ongoing research area. To aid a better design, it is worthwhile to have a framework that can be used to quantitatively measure various features of IT solutions and products like ubiquity, security etc. The primary aim of having this framework is to assist in development of a solution or product that is properly engineered. This paper provides a novel framework which includes various metrics that measures various features of an IT application or product. The application of the framework is demonstrated by measuring the various features of two different versions of a smart home application developed by a company for luxury real estate project. Initially, the first version of the application is evaluated using the proposed framework which then helped in identifying the improvement areas which were enhanced in subsequent version of the solution. These results are presented to validate the proposed concepts and model.
Keywords: Framework, Ubiquitous computing, Ubiquitous application.
