Introduction (Apologies if you've received it from else where)

Our workshop presents a summary of Emerging Software as a Service and Analytics (ESaaSA), which offer innovative approaches of delivering services and making contributions to research and enterprise communities. Following the successful delivery of ESaaSA 2014, we oversee the importance of ESaaSA as a unique and rising field and all services in SaaS should always be designed, deployed and integrated. Emerging means innovative techniques and methods used for the traditional areas (finance, healthcare, education, security etc) or new areas (mobile apps, social networks, weather visualization, Big Data processing etc). We will seek papers to demonstrate proofs-of-concept, demonstrations, design and implementations, successful case studies and use cases of adopting ESaaSA.

The focus of this workshop is to demonstrate new techniques, demonstrations and innovative approaches in ESaaSA and analytics services. The impacts of research contributions are as follows.

- Explain how to implement analytics, and their added values.
- Demonstrate how ESaaSA can be used in different case studies.
- Describe how to resolve challenges in each Cloud Computing adoption scenario.
- Provide reproducible steps for anyone to follow, and support reproducibility, an important aspect in Cloud Computing science.
- Explain how their Cloud services can work effectively in production and real-time
- Present how their services can make contributions to users involved in the use of Cloud services and adoption.
- Sum up and disseminate all the lessons learned and recommendation to play an influential role in academia and industry
