Imagine school district staff inputting school data and sharing it in real time, managing teacher absences and arranging substitutes from the comfort of home, or deploying IT personnel to the right site at the right time to tackle the highest-priority jobs first. The concept of managing applications from anywhere with a network connection, known by the name of "software as a service" (SaaS), or "on demand computing," is catching on across business channels and is starting to find a clientele in the education space. This article discusses the benefits of SaaS among teachers and school officials, and describes how school districts are catching on to software as a service, a business model that allows administrators to manage essential organizational functions and plug in to student data from anywhere with an internet connection.
