Overview

This paper looks at two eras of SAM: pre-cloud and cloud. On-premise datacenters managed, financed, and controlled by centralized IT – traditional SAM – dominated the pre-cloud era. Whereas Anything-as-a-Service (XaaS), subscription models, greater flexibility for users, and decentralized control define the current cloud era.
To reflect this cloud perspective this paper is divided into two sections:

PART I: BASICS OF TRADITIONAL SAM – SOFTWARE RUNNING IN ON-PREMISE DATACENTERS AND CLIENT COMPUTERS

 

PART II: HOW SAM HAS EVOLVED WITH CLOUD COMPUTING
