Architecture and Features

SAM V2 is functionally similar to SAM V1 in terms of data tracking, but differs in terms of architecture, user interface, and reporting. While SAM V1 follows a software as a service model, SAM V2 requires that the software be installed on computers owned and managed by the user. Please review the SAM descriptions and pricing document for a comparison between SAM V1 and SAM V2.

SAM V2 was developed using the leading open source solutions of PHP and MySQL. For an overview of PHP and MySQL and why these products where used, see Why PHP and MySQL.

Other features of SAM V2 include:

  • Web-based
  • Accessible
  • Custom, printable reporting
  • Access control via logins
  • Data encryption
  • Data export

Knowledge of SQL is required to create custom reports using the SAM V2 interface. Additionally, SQL can be used to import or manipulate data.
