SaaS solutions have recently been gaining in popularity. As a software distribution model in which applications are hosted by a vendor or service provider, SaaS is available to users over the Internet in a form of the "Cloud." Introducing a new concept of ESaaS that is defined as Education Software-as-a-Service, this paper compares it with traditional education software, and discusses how such software can support the education system as a tool for enhancing information, and learning inquiry skills. The paper then focuses on the considerations that should be taken into account in deploying successful ESaaS for IT professionals, and educators of the future, if the SaaS usage becomes widespread.
