EHS Leaders are now confronted with the important task of selecting between three different software deployment models: on-premise, single-tenant private cloud, and multi-tenant public cloud. Cloud software is becoming increasingly popular — 78% of the 382 EHS decision-makers interviewed in the 2017 Verdantix
Global EHS Leaders Survey now consider the private cloud, single-instance deployment model is either “preferred” or “acceptable”.
The ability to deploy EHS software quickly for a global user group, strong IT security and future scalability are attractive features of cloud deployment. Whilst IT departments may still resist cloud deployment, the reality is that this should be the preferred deployment option for all EHS executives seeking to engage a distributed workforce in building a better health and safety culture.
