Executive Summary

In the past decade, software deployment models have evolved to become a landscape with a wide variety of deployment options to choose from. Whilst EH&S managers typically don’t have strong views on debates raging in the technology sector around multi-tenant software economics and Software-as-a-Service business models, they realize that deploying software in their own data centre versus hosting it with an external provider has significant implications which need to be weighed up. To gauge their preferences for different deployment models, Verdantix conducted phone interviews with 301 EH&S managers in 15 geographies across the full range of industries. This report provides a unique data set for EH&S managers to benchmark their software deployment plans and for software vendors to understand how acceptable different technology strategies are to the EH&S community.
