The environment contains four modules, namely, interface manager, information repository, information analyzer, and information collector. The interface manager provides an intelligent interface for generating and collecting business information from the mobile device. The information repository contains the user-specific information and the meta-information of information sources. The information analyzer performs the tasks of user behavior analysis, quality of information service measurement, information repository management, cost evaluation, anytime information supporting, and information filtering. Finally, the information collector dispatches different information agents for collecting business information from different information sources.
