IT Service Catalog
Information technologies are critical for every business today, yet to manage IT services, you need to understand their description, costs, and service provision regulations. An IT service catalog can help you achieve this objective. IT service catalog is a structured document or a database with standardized description of all IT services delivered to end users by the IT department.
This conceptual approach helps businesses to obtain a number of important advantages. Top managers have an easy way of getting information about IT service levels and capabilities in order to redistribute IT resources efficiently depending on dynamically changing business needs.
