Sensing and actuation as a service (SAaaS) is a novel paradigm, modeled after Cloud and service computing, envisioning an Infrastructure-oriented (IaaS-like) provisioning model for sensors and actuators. In past works we defined a framework architecture for dealing with the requirements arising from the SAaaS criteria, considering the involvement of both mobiles and sensor networks. This provided a static view of the solution proposed, lacking details on how to effectively apply the paradigm exploiting its benefits. This paper addresses the topic from a different perspective, providing a dynamic view of the scenarios and therefore tackling SAaaS infrastructure setup and application service deployment. We identified a few outstanding use cases, which are described in operative terms to show the applicability and usefulness of the proposed solution.
