Our workshop will present a summary of Emerging Software as a Service (ESaaS) and analytics, which have been adopted and used extensively by a variety of organizations. ESaaS and analytics offer added values such as improvements in efficiency, technical performance and service ratings. Examples include Health Informatics as a Service (HIaaS) to compute simulations in tumor, proteins, DNAs and human organs. Security as a Service (SeaaS) provides recommendation and safeguards security for all aspects of Cloud. Financial Software as a Service (FSaaS) can compute pricing and risk, offering quality services for entrepreneurs and decision makers. Education as a Service (EaaS) can deliver modern education and a high quality learning experience. We are seeking papers to demonstrate proof-of-concept, design and implementations, case studies and use cases for adopting ESaaS and analytics, including experiments, technical evaluations and user experiences.
