We have a situation where managment wants to build a Service Catalog to include both requestable and non-requestable services. They want the non-requestable services in it because they plan to build OLAs around them.
A non-requestable service would be something that the IT organization does, but it is not requested. For instance, managing the network so that it is available 99% of the time. Since this isn't requestable it really doesn't belong in our SRM (Service Request Mgmt) system.
We have BMC's ITSM suite for Change, CMDB, SRM, SLM, etc.
Is there a standalone tool - or one that we can integrate that would help us manage this?
Has anyone else included non-requestable services in their catalog?
yes I see the non-requestable items as the IT Systems that make up Busines Services and would generally wrap an OLA around them as you as proposing. The need to Busines Services to be linked to IT Systems is as important s relating CI's to one another. _________________ Mark O'Loughlin
