DOX.Network is a decentralized Software-as-a-Service(SaaS) API platform application based
on Block-Chain. Our goal is to apply the block chain technology and sharing economy
business mode to all the chains of SaaS (such as Software, Cloud computing, Datastore and
Business currency exchange, etc.). To decentralize the provisioning of SaaS, migrating from a
global infrastructure operated by a small group of hyperscale service providers to a
blockchain-based peer-to-peer infrastructure operated by millions of small individual
providers and contributors of cloud resources. To simplify the use of professional SaaS for all
levels of software users turning such services into a commodity product that is universally
accessible and utilized by the general public. To monetize the new decentralized SaaS
ecosystem with a dedicated cryptocurrency governed by a smart contract enabling
automated and trusted reconciliation of payments between all peer-to-peer cloud services
the emergent decentralized SaaS-Based ecosystem, governing contribution-based pro-rata
payments, clearing and distribution of financial benefits to the new role players of the SaaS.
The DOX blockchain system consists of users with wallets containing keys, transactions that
are propagated across the network, and miners who produce (through competitive
computation) the consensus blockchain, which is the authoritative ledger of all transactions.
The Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) market is expanding rapidly, led by large SaaS corporations
as well as smaller startups. According to research by the Synergy Research Group, the market
is a high-growth one, with leading SaaS providers growing at about 32% YoY in Q4 2016. Q4
revenues thus stand at a whopping $13 billion, a dominant trend that is expected to continue.
Cloud computing offerings are of three types
Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS)....
Here are some of the key players driving this growth trend:
Microsoft: Microsoft leads the enterprise SaaS segment ever since it overtook long-time
leader Salesforce. It operates in the categories of collaboration and customer relationship
management (CRM) and enjoys customers such as Rolls-Royce and GE Healthcare for its
Google: Google SaaS is in an enviable position, and exhibited the highest growth rate in Q4
2016. Its G Suite collaboration and productivity suite, serving the likes of Verizon and HP, has
done the search giant a world of good in securing its SaaS leadership position.
Cisco: Leading the collaboration SaaS space alongside Microsoft and Google is Cisco. Aimed
at improving performance and reducing costs, it secures and optimizes the hybrid IT world
with its SaaS applications such as Cisco CloudCenter and Metacloud.

SaaS users in Netflix, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, and the Ohio State University.
Zendesk: A relatively new entrant in the SaaS space in the year 2007, it operates in the CRM
arena, empowering organizations by helping them understand customers better. Improving
customer relationships has helped the company build a great client base in a short time,
some of which are Tile, Everlane, and RentMoola.
Oracle: One of the pioneers of ERP today, Oracle also doles out system infrastructure SaaS.
Its cloud suite spans across customer insighting, human resource management, financial
management, and sales and marketing, among others. Its embedded social, mobile, and
analytics capabilities deliver value by boosting business performance across these areas.
SAP: SAP is another long-standing leader in the ERP space. It made it big in the SaaS space

business a further boost. In terms of overall SaaS market rankings, Microsoft and Salesforce
are followed by Adobe, Oracle and SAP, with other leading companies including ADP, IBM,
Workday, Intuit, Cisco, Google and ServiceNow. It’s notable that the market remains quite
fragmented, with different vendors leading each of the main market segments. Among the
major SaaS vendors those with the highest overall growth rates are Oracle, Microsoft and
In many ways the enterprise SaaS market is now mature. Synergy forecasts that the SaaS
market will double in size over the next three years, with strong growth across all segments
and all geographic regions.

but the SaaS
market is substantially bigger and will remains so for many years,” said John
Dinsdale, a Chief Analyst and Research Director at Synergy Re <...
The statistic shows the size of the cloud Software as a Service (SaaS) market from 2008 to
2020. In 2017, the Software as a Service market is predicted to be worth around 105.49 billion

1.3 The Future holds for SaaS
With its market stabilized and customer adoption reaching maturity, the cloud industry is
primed for SaaS 2.0. New features and market segments have already started this year and
will gain more momentum in 2017. Here are three key movers of SaaS 2.0:
Vertical markets will grow at a faster pace
Health, energy, and utilities lead industries today for vertical SaaS markets. We expect the
same business adoption in other verticals including chemicals, industrial products, social
services, and retail.
The last in particular is primed for a huge disruption with the continued improvement of two
consumer technologies this year: virtual reality and machine learning. Alibaba introduced a
VR shopping experience on this year’s Black Friday. Chinese shoppers “visite...
around the world without leaving their room. We can see shopping cart solutions and
ecommerce builders integrating VR in their features quite soon.
Machine learning is also primed to disrupt retail and the SaaS applications it uses, primarily
among CRM and help desk solution. Microsoft is already working on its third generation of
chatbot that are increasingly human-like. Following the success (and controversies) of Tay
chatbot to communicate with humans in 14 cycles, Microsoft recently launched Zo, its latest
AI chat experiment and so-called improved Tay (Zo can shut its mouth when talking about
Machine learning or artificial intelligence isn’t only limited to retail, but can, in fact, reshape,
the whole SaaS landscape. BVP predicts that enterprise SaaS solutions will start adding an AI
layer to help users interact with their software. AI also presents deep learning opportunities
that can be unraveled in business analytics, a timely feature to address the “brea...
