Summary

This chapter discusses the solution offered by the Software Management Framework (SMF), which achieves its task in tight collaboration with AMF and Information Model Management service (IMM). It introduces the entity type which is a key concept related to the software inventory. The chapter fouses on the notions and requirements SMF introduces toward software vendors to describe their software intended for a SA Forum compliant system and how this information can be used to derive the different entity types. It introduces the method SMF utilizes to deploy new software and new configurations. The key notion is the upgrade campaign that the SMF specification defined to be able to describe for an SMF implementation the target of the upgrade and the procedures to be used to achieve this target.
