“On premises” is a method of deploying software. With on-prem the computer programs are installed right on the user’s computer through CDs or USB drives. Whereas with off-premise, the installer can be anywhere on the web.

Many companies opt for on-prem because it doesn’t require third-party access, gives owners physical control over the server hardware and software, and does not require them to pay month after month for access. Think of how you buy your fast food meal.

You could buy it and eat it “on premise” at the fast food restaurant. Or you can call and order your meal, and have it delivered to your home.
