Ambient Intelligence (AmI) is a vision of future Information Society, where people are surrounded by an electronic environment which is sensitive to their needs, personalized to their requirements, anticipatory of their behavior, and responsive to their presence. It emphasizes on greater user-friendliness, user-empowerment, and more effective service support, with an aim to make peoplersquos daily activities more convenient, thus improving the quality of human life. To make AmI real, effective data management support is indispensable. High-quality information must be available to any user, anytime, anywhere, and on any lightweight device. Beyond that, AmI also raises many new challenges related to context-awareness and natural user interaction, entailing us to re-think current database techniques. The aim of this paper is to address the impact of AmI, particularly its user-centric context-awareness requirement on data management strategies and solutions. We first provide a multidimensional view of database access context. Taking diverse contextual information into account, we then present five context-aware data management strategies, using the most fundamental database operation-context-aware query request as a case in point. We execute the proposed strategies via a two-layered infrastructure, consisting of public data manager(s) and a private data manager. Detailed steps of processing a context-aware query are also described in the paper.
