Context-aware applications are mobile applications that use settings to provide relevant information and services to users. Technology selection is the process of determining methods, techniques and tools that could fulfill the development requirements of a particular application. Currently, a number of technology selection methods have been proposed such as The Technology Identification, Evaluation and Selection (TIES), Two-Step Optimization Approach and Multiple Criteria Decision Methods (MCDM). None of these methods however are specifically designed for selecting the suitable technology for developing context-aware applications. This study proposes a systematic technology selection method for context-aware applications that comprises three stages; understanding user requirements, comparing available technologies and selection. A case study involving technology selection for implementing a University Mobile Organizer has been carried out in order to evaluate the feasibility of the proposed approach. The result of the study suggests that the proposed method is feasible and suitable.
