With the introduction of our service portfolio management, the ITIL Content Library and Quickstart packages, Oblicore is creating momentum in our customers' Service Catalog Management and Service Level Management initiatives
WALTHAM, Mass. (PRWEB) September 8, 2008
The enhanced Portfolio Management Module empowers a company to categorize its services into multiple catalogs and portfolios. Based on security, this centralized portfolio structure can then be made available to multiple business units, geographical regions, accounts teams, etc…. This simultaneously reduces management and maintenance overhead, while increasing visibility and reuse of services. The solution also introduces powerful workflow and service versioning capabilities which streamlines service approval and enables the company to maintain an audit trail of service changes and statuses.
In addition, the Oblicore Guarantee ITIL Content Library introduces a predefined base of ITIL-based service catalog definitions, service level metrics, timeslots, business logic, and report definitions. Companies that deploy this library are able to leverage Oblicore's vast domain expertise in their Service Catalog Management and Service Level Management projects. As a result, the time and expense required to define their service catalogs and service level agreements are significantly reduced resulting in a higher return on investment.
Oblicore's Quickstart Package for Oblicore Guarantee and Quickstart Package for Service Catalog Management each provide organizations everything needed to implement Oblicore Guarantee and Service Catalog Management respectively within six calendar weeks. The package includes both the solution and the services required for a company to put its Service Level Management processes into operation.
