Service Catalog Consulting from EMA
Since nearly the beginning of the computer era there has been a disconnect between IT departments and the business lines they support. The IT Service Catalog addresses this age-old problem and promises to bring IT and the business into a closer relationship than they have ever enjoyed. The Service Catalog provides the capability to marry a service request and fulfillment management system with a comprehensive description of services, service levels, related services, and service components.
While the Service Catalog holds significant promise for transforming the way IT does business, the truth is that the majority of IT Service Catalog implementations are larger cultural, political, and technical undertakings than most organizations realize. Enterprise IT professionals tasked with implementing a real-world Service Catalog face a host of challenges such as defining and documenting services and constituent views, managing expectations across the organization, and developing processes to maintain the Service Catalog. EMA can help your organization confront these challenges head-on and build an actionable Service Catalog that aligns IT with the needs of the business.
