Enterprise software deployment options

Deployment options that fit the needs of your organization—today and tomorrow

When it comes to any technology investment, customers deserve choices, not limitations. Lexmark gives you more enterprise software deployment options—including cloud-based solutions—for unrivaled flexibility.

You can select traditional on-premises perpetual licensing, hosted subscription deployment (SaaS) or hosted perpetual licensing deployment. Deploy according to what makes the most sense for your organization, and change it as your needs change. With the enterprise software deployment options listed below, your pursuit of optimum efficiency won't be inhibited by IT requirements or narrow deployment parameters.

Traditional on-premises

Your organization licenses Lexmark enterprise software solutions perpetually, paying up-front for the entire package. With the traditional approach, your organization also manages and operates the system and associated infrastructure (servers, storage, network, database and so on) on your premises.

Perpetual hosted

Your organization licenses our enterprise software solutions perpetually and we manage and operate the system and associated infrastructure in our secure data centers.

Software as a service (SaaS)

Your organization accesses our enterprise software on a subscription basis (invoiced quarterly or annually), and we manage and operate the system and associated infrastructure in our secure, Service Organization Controls (SSAE 16 Type II, formerly SAS 70 Type II) compliant data center. Your organization has access to all of the product modules within the subscription tier subscribed to.

The SaaS option enables you to maintain focus on your business and customers, not support and infrastructure. The ability to operationalize all software- and IT-related expenses—making them measurable and predictable—dramatically accelerates your return on investment (ROI).

Lexmark hosted and SaaS offerings include Platform Services, a unique combination of computer, networking and storage platform management services

Remote administration services—complete, expert administration of your solution—are optionally available for every deployment.


Lexmark’s Managed and Platform Services are provided by our Cloud Solutions business unit, which has achieved Service Organization Controls (SOC) II, Type II compliance.

This certification represents a high level of performance across the five Trust Principles defined by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) and the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants (CICA): security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy.
