I know, to use SSOM it must be deployed on same farm. Is there any way to use SSOM to work with Sharepoint Online? Thank you.

The clear answer is

No, You cannot use Server Object Model in SharePoint Online.

So what may be an alternative?

  • If you have some sort of SSOM codes then you can convert that codes to CSOM(Managed CSOM, JavaScript or REST API) whatever is more convenient to you.
  • Also, SharePoint Online does not entertain any deployment of managed CSOM, you can code your requirement to SharePoint Provider Hosted Add-in.
  • Also you can code your requirement as WCF services and consume it using JavaScript.
