Cloud computing is an emerging dynamic scalable model of IT for web-delivered services. It is increasingly applied to smartly interconnect people, processes, applications, things, information and businesses to generate economic or social value with high quality of experience and low cost. The cloud platform and services promise to fundamentally alter how we think of, procure and use IT to accelerate e-business where end-users only need a web browser and do not have to develop, install or maintain software or hardware and pay flexibly for the business services they want to consume.
The globalization of economies and businesses, the emerging of cloud platforms and business services, the billions of mobile devices accessing the Internet, the real-time data streams and information sharing, and the rise of social networking and computing are all propelling a combinatorial innovation in cloud services accelerating e-business. Yet the economic and technical fundamentals of cloud services remain to be explored especially in the context of e-business. What are the business models for cloud services? What business process is suitable moving onto Cloud? How to promote Cloud services on the Web? How to better understand customer behaviors and serve them on the Cloud? How to manage the Cloud service lifecycle from subscription, onboarding to configurations?
This workshop on cloud services aims to bring researchers and industry practitioners together to exchange experience, insights and state-of-the-art research in addressing the aforementioned challenges. Topics of interest in the workshop include but not limited to:
