In July, I wrote a post for this blog decrying the use of the phrase “on premise” to describe traditional software that is deployed at the customer’s location. I posited that this should rightly be referred to as “on premises” with the final s in tact.
Late yesterday, there is news of a victory of sorts. I received an email from my Sage colleague Tammy Mathews in which she informed me that the new Sage writing standards will include the correct usage for on premises!
I consider this one small step for a man. One giant leap for correct usage!
